Here at AsBestTest we have over 25 years of experience in the asbestos industry. Our service covers all aspects from testing to managing the removal of asbestos products and disposal in accordance with current legislation. All of our asbestos samples are sent to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory for extensive testing, in order for us to report their findings back to you before any further work takes place. We are based in Carshalton and cover all areas in Surrey and South London
Prices for testing start from £110. The test price includes a site visit, one sample and provision of a test analysis certificate. If further samples are required at the same visit, these are charged at an additional £35 per test. We are happy to manage the removal and disposal of asbestos if required and quotes will be supplied as appropriate
Asbestos is considered a problem if it is damaged and has potential to release fibres that could be inhaled into the lungs. If the asbestos is in poor condition, or if building works are planned that would disturb it, an asbestos survey would be required.
Mortgage lenders will want to know whether asbestos is present and if so, whether it will affect the value of the property and/or whether it needs removal.
The lender may insist on an asbestos survey report before releasing the funds for the purchase.
