What Exactly Is An Asbestos Survey?


Asbestos is only dangerous when disturbed. However, it must be located first to avoid disturbing asbestos materials. Because they do not appear to be distinguishable from other building materials. And they are frequently concealed.

An asbestos survey will reveal:

  • The location of asbestos

  • The type of Asbestos

  • The condition of the building material used.

  • The amount of Asbestos present in the location

  • Whether or not additional action is required.
