Before performing any type of construction on older homes, it could be necessary to have an asbestos survey. No property owners should attempt this survey themselves, since checking for and handling this hazardous material requires that certain precautions be taken. A survey is important because it can tell you how to go about completing your project as safely and efficiently as possible.► Click For Free Asbestos Survey Quotes ◄
Asbestos is normally found in ceiling tiles and insulation, particularly in buildings that are more than 30 years old. Under normal conditions, asbestos poses very little risk to a building's inhabitants. Even so, when it is disturbed, asbestos can cause fine particles of dust to enter the air, where they can be breathed in by those who are nearby. This can cause a number of health problems, and has even been linked to various forms of cancer. Your asbestos survey will reveal not only the presence of this material, but will also detail measures that can be taken in order to prevent people from becoming exposed to it.
Average asbestos survey costs will largely depend on the size and type of building that is being inspected. Having attics or crawl spaces that are difficult to access will result in higher costs, since contractors will have to take more time when performing this survey. Using a licensed company may cost more, but it will also ensure you receive more accurate results than if you go with a contractor who is not licensed to perform asbestos surveys.

Q. Should I survey my home for asbestos?
A. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if your home or other buildings on your property contain asbestos. The problem is that if your property was built prior to 1980, there is a large chance that asbestos has been used. As you may well know, intact asbestos isnít really a problem but if the material breaks or is disturbed, it releases fibres into the air that can be inhaled and cause a number of life threatening illnesses. Having your property surveyed is affordable and will be able to provide you and your family with peace of mind.
Q. When should an asbestos survey take place?
A. If you are planning a building demolition, and fear there may be asbestos in your walls, floors, or ceiling, then you should have an asbestos survey performed. You may also need one if you plan to tear down walls or undergo a major renovation of your home or office.
