There is one thing that many people forget when owning a home, and that is to make sure their home is clean of asbestos. Asbestos can be a very dangerous product and up to th 1990s, many homes had it in many products such as roof sheets, plaster board, pipe lagging, floor tiles, roof tiles, toilet cisterns, bitumen adhesive and others. That is why you should get your house inspected especially if it was build before 1990. It is the law to have an asbestos survey done for a business, but it isn’t the law for a home. However, it is still important for you to get it done. The homeowner is responsible to make sure their property is clean from asbestos. The surveyor will most likely take a sample and get it analyzed at the lab. If you are finding it difficult to find a good surveyor, you can look for a company that is UKAS accredited or at least find a company that works to MDHS100 guidelines. UKAS stands for the United Kingdom Accreditation Service and they audit survey companies against the abestos standards ISO 17020. This will make sure that the companies surveys are carried out according to the international methodologies. There are three types of surveys you can get. The first one will not take any physical samples, survey 2 will take samples to be analyzed, and type 3 will have the surveyors access to all areas of the building and will be fully intrusive. This type of survey is usually carried out before demolition or major refurbishment. So you should the abestos website if you want to get more information on getting abestos survey.
