Your home may contain asbestos if it was built or refurbished before the year 2000.
When asbestos is in good condition and not disturbed or damaged, it is not a danger. Once disturbed, for examples carrying out. improvements or DIY works in your home, asbestos fibres may become airborne and a possible risk to health.
We carry out asbestos surveys ahead of any refurbishment works e.g. a new kitchen, new roof, and also intrusive repairs such as replacing a floor covering, to keep customers and our colleagues safe.
There is no legal obligation to survey all our properties unless carrying out significant work, but we endeavour to survey 100% as quickly as we can. We have surveyed 100% of our communal buildings and where asbestos is present we inspect these on an annual basis to make sure they remain safe.
Our survey/testing contractors are part of UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) to standards ISO 17020 and 17025
Asbestos removal contractors have been awarded a license from the HSE to remove asbestos and are members of ARCA (Asbestos Removal Contractors Association)
