The dangers of exposure to asbestos have been well documented in the past, however many property owners are still unsure as to how they can identify it within their properties, despite acknowledging the health dangers asbestos provides. Fortunately our experienced and highly skilled team here at RJ Environmental can assist by providing advice and guidance, along with a thorough asbestos survey Newport.
Asbestos comes in many forms, all of which are equally dangerous but can be easily identified through a thorough home survey, if you know what you’re looking for. Fortunately as a result of our experience and reputation within the industry, the team here at RJ Environmental do, which is why we’ve provided the guide below to offer you a helping hand.
Identify Where Asbestos Could Be:
When carrying out a survey for asbestos, before you can identify whether your property has it, you need to identify the areas where asbestos could be. A little known fact is that within a typical home there are well over twenty locations where asbestos can potentially be identified.
Some of the more common areas include roof sheets, tiles and slates, guttering, boiler flues, soffit boards and wall cladding.
When carrying out a home survey, you’re likely to spot asbestos within its opening stages and it can be noticed by three distinctive colours, brown, blue and white; unfortunately the colour of the asbestos doesn’t indicate which form of asbestos you have, but our team will know the correct measures to take to safely remove the threat of asbestos in your home.
If you’re concerned that asbestos could be a factor within your property, then contact our team today to carry out an asbestos survey Newport, after all it’s the safest way of identifying any asbestos related issues and finding a prevention method.
