Asbestos Surveys Chester & Cheshire
By Licensed Experts

Our Surveys

Fibre Safe carries out asbestos surveys for residential and commercial properties across Chester and the wider Cheshire region. These surveys generally involve collecting samples and conducting analyses to ascertain the presence of asbestos or Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).

Our Expertise

Our expertise and knowledge ensures you meet all relevant legislations, laws, and safety measures necessary for safe management of asbestos. We provide guidance on asbestos surveys, removal, monitoring, and even training, in addition to performing inspections on both commercial and residential properties.

Our Knowledge

Asbestos began to be widely used in construction during the 1920s, hitting its highest levels of use in the 1960s and 1970s. Unfortunately, Merseyside is one of the areas most affected by asbestos-related deaths due to the significant amounts of asbestos used in the city, with asbestos Containing Materials still found in many properties across the region.

If you suspect your property may have asbestos, Fibre Safe can help you with all aspects of dealing with this dangerous substance. We offer asbestos surveys, asbestos testing and management and asbestos removal to all residential and commercial properties throughout Chester and its surrounding areas.

Although finding asbestos is not exactly an everyday occurrence, if you do come across it, you need to hire the services of a specialist who will be able to identify it, test it and remove it (if possible). You must avoid handling asbestos materials and products and leave it to the professionals, as it is highly dangerous work.

We serve Chester city centre, Westminster Park, Handbridge, Hoole, Saltney, Upton, Broughton, Lache, Newton, Queens Park, Vicars Cross, Abbots Meads, Mollington, and further afield.

Across Chester & the Cheshire region, Fibre Safe provide a range of asbestos surveys, catering to commercial and residential property owners. We adhere to UKAS standards (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). All our team members, from asbestos surveyors to office staff and directors, possess the necessary UKATA or BOHS certifications.

Asbestos Surveys and Reports

Our surveys adhere to the standards and guidelines set by the HSE document HSG264 and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. It’s now mandatory to manage asbestos-containing materials in all commercial properties in the UK, with certain domestic properties, like communal areas in flats, also falling under this requirement.

Our reports are easy to understand and pinpoint all asbestos locations in a building, detailing crucial information like the type of asbestos, its location, extent, and condition. Each report consolidates our findings, laboratory test results of all examined materials, and an asbestos register for the property. After issuing the report, if needed, our asbestos surveyor can meet with you on-site or discuss over the phone the identified materials, their implications and to agree an asbestos removal plan if required.

Asbestos surveys have become standard for home buyers, leaseholders, or freeholders involved in property transactions. Both parties’ solicitors often request an asbestos inspection before finalising the deal. Whether you need an asbestos survey for a single property, a portfolio, or just testing a suspicious material, Fibre Safe is here to help, no matter the scale of the concern.

Domestic Asbestos Survey Chester

A domestic asbestos survey is a crucially important step in the home-buying process. Asbestos surveys prior to property purchases will provide the essential information about potential asbestos removal or management costs, and ensures your safety during future renovations by identifying any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) present.

Without such a survey, new homeowners can find themselves facing unexpected and costly remedial works, sometimes amounting to tens of thousands of pounds. ACMs can also stop necessary building improvements, such as rewiring, roofing, and plumbing projects.

The disruption caused by a domestic asbestos survey is minimal. The detailed report generated will include all necessary details, such as how to handle any asbestos found, risk assessments, and floor plans highlighting affected areas, among other critical information.

Commercial Asbestos Surveys Chester

If you own or maintain non-domestic premises that were built before the year 2000, then it is a legal requirement for you to have had this property surveyed by a qualified asbestos specialist. Furthermore Refurbishment-Demolition asbestos surveys must be undertaken on properties which are due to be refurbished or demolished.

The aim of this survey type is to survey the property in question for asbestos containing materials so as these can be managed safely or as is usually the case removed safely in line with the regulations before renovation work starts. It sets out to establish the location, extent and condition of asbestos throughout the property so that an asbestos risk assessment can be made. We are able to advise how to manage any asbestos before works commence so that a builder or demolition contractor working in a property containing asbestos can do so safely.

We also undertake re-inspections of current asbestos surveys as part of our management services.

If you would like to book an inspection, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0151 538 3084 or email us at sales@fibresafe.com

Asbestos Management Survey Chester

Asbestos Management Surveys, formally recognised as a ‘Type 2’ survey, is legally required for non-domestic buildings constructed before 2000. Numerous fines have been issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to companies that have failed to conduct this survey.

The purpose of this survey is to identify and locate any asbestos present in a building and assess the risk it might pose if disturbed during occupancy. The findings from the survey will help develop a detailed report that includes an asbestos management plan.

Pre-Demolition and Refurbishment Surveys

A refurbishment survey is conducted before any demolition or refurbishment work to locate any asbestos containing materials and help the owner control or remove them before any work can be conducted for the safety of the contractors conducting the refurbishment.
