Asbestos Management Surveys


The purpose of a Management Survey is to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy and use of premises. This type of survey was formerly recognised as the old Type 1 & 2 surveys. The management survey gives you the information needed to manage and monitor ACMs. This will include preparing an asbestos register and developing an asbestos management plan.  

Asbestos Refurbishment Surveys


A Refurbishment known in the industry as an R+D Survey, should be one of the first steps undertaken in any building works, be it a commercial, industrial or residential project. If you need asbestos removal Edinburgh this is best to obtain.

Although asbestos was banned in 1999, it remains a potential threat to people living or working in properties built before this date. The extensive use of asbestos means that there are still many buildings across the UK that contain this harmful substance. 

PRE-Purchase Asbestos Surveys


If you are purchasing a property built before 2000, you may be required to carry out a pre-purchase asbestos survey. Our pre-purchase asbestos surveys are based on the two standard types of survey, namely a Management Survey or an R & D Survey (Refurbishment & Demolition). Your choice of survey depends on your future plans for the property you wish to buy.

What Our Customers think about our Asbestos Experts


3 Most Common Asbestos Types in England & Scotland

  1. Amosite ( also known as brown asbestos) was used most frequently in cement sheets and pipe insulation. It can also be found in insulating board, ceiling tiles and thermal insulation products. Licensed asbestos removal applies for this type of asbestos brown.
  2. Chrysotile (white asbestos) is the most commonly used form of asbestos. It can be found today in the roofs, ceilings, walls and floors of homes and businesses. Manufacturers also used chrysotile asbestos in automobile brake linings, gaskets and boiler seals, and insulation for pipes, ducts and appliances. Trained asbestos surveyors and removal specialists can deal with asbestos chrysotile.

White Asbestos Removal & Disposal

Chrysotile Asbestos Removal

Chrysotile is considered to be the most popular kind of asbestos. While it can be spotted in similar areas than green asbestos or white asbestos, one can find some consolation in the fact that it takes more exposure of that material to develop the disease syndromes. Curiously enough, that particular variation can be also found in car’s brake linings or seals. All because of its durability and relatively low cost.
According to various kinds of research, chrysotile accounts for over 90% off all asbestos implementation in the United States. That could be explained by the fact that it can be used for more purposes than other forms of this material. For instance, apart from the usual construction implementations, there have been known examples of it being woven into fabrics

FAQ – Asbestos Quiz

Here is the most common asked questions about Asbestos in Edinburgh – Glasgow – Scotland.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos is an umbrella term for a huge spectrum of naturally occurring materials. When it comes to its use in construction, it reached its peak popularity in the 1980s, just before first reports about its toxicity were exposed. After that it was quickly banned and is now no longer shipped anywhere (formerly, the main countries of asbestos mines were the USSR, Russia, Canada and South Africa). The most important quality of this material is that it is fibrous in nature. Splitting the strands of that chemical is particularly hazardous and can lead to serious health conditions. Because of its immense popularity several decades ago, now literally every building which was created in the second part of the 20th century can be at risk of having asbestos. That is why it is so tremendously important to have professionals run checks on your building and pass on their professional judgement on whether you and your loved ones would be at risk.

What does asbestos look like?

Asbestos is a very tricky chemical to discover. It is often hidden in places such as insulation, roofing, piping and others, moreover it can hardly ever be spotted with the naked eye. The crucial point that has to be made is that asbestos is most dangerous when it becomes airborne as it can get into your lungs and cause irreparable damage. That is why it is extremely important to not start any refurbishment in a newly inhabited flat or house without making sure that it does not contain this material. The list of potential sites it can be found is long and should discourage every DIY person from tampering with the areas of your flat that you are unsure of.

Why do we need an asbestos survey?

Asbestos comes in multiple forms and also, as an ingredient of other materials used in insulation, tiles or piping. It is thus almost beyond human possibilities to diagnose the area you live without a professional’s help as few us of really know what is every part of our dwelling made of (especially if we did not supervise the construction). With the help of an asbestos surveyor, the problems that you weren’t even aware of can really put to bed! If asbestos is detected, usually this person can suggest the best course of action to remove it.

How and why is it used?

Asbestos is commonly perceived as a construction material of the past, one of the most dangerous chemicals that used to be the ultimate source of dangerous diseases. However, one would be seriously mistaken to think that this chemical was safely and completely got rid of all over the country. Actually, it is quite the contrary, it is still present in a plethora of places and may still pose a significant risk to the unaware inhabitants. It was used primarily because of its durability and qualities such as fire resistance and cost-effectiveness. Among the people who should be especially wary of asbestos-related risks are the building workers and the individuals working in maintenance.

How do I remove asbestos?

First of all, you should immediately drop the idea of doing it yourself. As it was mentioned in the previous questions, attempting to remove the asbestos yourself is a really risky task that should only be performed by professionals. Being aware of all the risk factors and proper handling of asbestos is critical when it comes to removing asbestos. It is similarly important to remember that the task of getting rid of it should also involve the disposal of that noxious chemical and that rarely can be done by a layman without proper expertise. It is highly recommended to let the removal process be coordinated by certified asbestos removal companies which can ensure the necessary safety measures and take care of all the intricate details that this action implies.

Who is responsible for asbestos removal?

Asbestos removal should be handled with all the necessary safety measures in mind. The fact that it very easily becomes airborne should be a big red flag for all the daredevils who think that they can get rid of it without asking for professional help. It didn’t use to be the case a couple of years ago but now there are plenty of companies which are ready to solve that problem for you, ensuring the highest safety standards. It is thus tremendously important to contact professionals and let them remove asbestos if you do not want to put anyone in jeopardy.

Which buildings may be affected ?

Asbestos, because of its resistance and sturdiness, was very popular between 1960s and 80s. However, some experts say that it is advisable to run appropriate checks on constructions which were erected even before 2000. All that because asbestos reached its peak popularity during that period and it would an exaggeration to claim that it has been dealth with completely after it was banned around 1985. It still resides in thousands of constructions all over the UK and can still be spotted in buildings that have not been renovated for a long time or deserted. It is still very often present as part of insulation, piping or roofing which makes spotting it even more of a challenge.

When was asbestos use prohibited?

The ban on asbestos was levied in different years, depending on the country. In general, the first reports about its consequences started to appear around 1985. That was when the first reports of carcinogenic activity started to crop up, starting an unprecedented removal action. In the UK the ban was administered in 1989 but there are still countries in the world which have not made that call yet. However, it has to be said that a vast majority of the European states now have appropriate legislation in place in order to tackle the issue of asbestos. Its execution is a topic for another discussion though.

Asbestos Garage Removal

Garages are one of the most popular places where asbestos is still deposited. These buildings are rarely renovated and often were omitted during the removal that started at the end of 1980s. Most commonly, asbestos can be spotted on their roofs and can sometimes be dangerous to you and the neighbourhood (especially if it is in poor condition and crumbles). In such cases the risk of asbestos fibres becoming airborne is formidable and has to be avoided at all cost. The best way to do that is hire a professional contractor such as Blue A Ltd.
