Is it asbestos?
If you suspect the presence of asbestos, then we can offer a fast response for testing and surveying. It is vital that any suspected ACMs are not disturbed, whether that be by any building work, drilling or demolition. Disturbed ACMs will release dangerous fibres into the atmosphere that can be ingested or inhaled which can lead to fatal consequences.
If we do find ACMs within your property, you do not have to panic. Sometimes, if the substance is in good condition, it is better to leave it alone.
Our trained operatives will inspect the material and advise whether it needs removing or not. In some cases, we will advise on arranging for the ACM to be encapsulated. This is a technique of applying special substances that will coat and secure the fibres so that if it is left in situ, it will not pose a risk. If the ACM is out of reach and in good condition, we may recommend a management plan and periodic re-inspection.
