What is an Asbestos Refurbishment Survey?

An asbestos refurbishment/demolition survey is a specialized inspection conducted by certified professionals before major renovation or demolition works. This survey aims to identify all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that could be disturbed during the planned activities. By assessing the presence, location, and condition of ACMs, we provide crucial information to ensure safe and compliant refurbishment or demolition projects.

The Importance of Asbestos Refurbishment Surveys

Refurbishment and demolition activities can potentially release harmful asbestos fibres into the air if ACMs are not identified and properly managed.

An asbestos refurbishment/demolition survey is crucial for safeguarding the health and safety of workers, reducing the risk of asbestos exposure, and complying with regulatory requirements. It enables you to implement appropriate control measures and ensure a safe working environment.

Was your property built before 2000's?

If you had construction or refurbishment done before 2000, asbestos may be present. Commercial buildings commonly used asbestos since it is a durable, fire-resistant substance.

You must make sure that any potential asbestos on your property won’t endanger people’s health. When unharmed, asbestos is completely safe; it only turns deadly when disturbed and its filaments can escape.

Unless you have previous asbestos-related work expertise, avoid attempting to inspect it yourself. If the asbestos is disturbed or fractured, fibres could be released. An asbestos specialist can assess the state of any asbestos on your home and provide guidance on how to treat it.
