Asbestos Surveys

There are two types of asbestos survey:

The Management Survey
The purpose is required to manage ACM during the normal occupation and use of your premises.  The duty-holder can make a Management Survey where the premises are simple and straightforward.  Otherwise, a surveyor is needed.A Management Survey aims to ensure that:
1. nobody is harmed by the continuing presence of ACM in the premises or equipment
2. that the ACM remain in good condition
3. that nobody disturbs it accidentally
The Survey must locate any ACM’s that could be damaged or disturbed by normal activities, by planned or routine maintenance, or by installing new equipment.  It involves minor intrusion and minor asbestos disturbance to make a Materials Assessment.  This shows the risk of ACM, if disturbed, to release fibres into the air.  It guides the client, eg in prioritising any remedial work.​

Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

​An R&D Asbestos Survey is required where the premises, or part of it, need upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. AN R&D Survey does not need a record of the ACM condition to be kept. Normally, a surveyor is needed for Refurbishment / demolition Surveys.​
A Refurbishment / demolition Survey aims to ensure that:
1. ​No Persons will be harmed by work on any ACM’s discovered in the premises or equipment
2. The work will be undertaken by a competent contractor in the right way
An R&D Survey must locate and identify all ACM’s before any structural work begins at the location or on stated equipment at the premises. R&D Surveys involve the destructive inspection and asbestos disturbance and is designed to find all asbestos products so that any ACM’s can be made safe or removed prior to any work being undertaken​.

Every Employer in the UK is required by The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to “Manage Asbestos” in their premises. This will require the Employer or person in control of the premises, to:
1. ​Find out if asbestos is present in the building.
2. Assess the condition of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) which may be there.
3. Survey and Sample for Asbestos if required.
4. Keep a written record or register of any ACMS discovered.
5. Act on the findings of what you have discovered to protect your staff, maintenance workers, contractors, visitors and members of the public.
6. Review and update your Asbestos Management Plan at regular intervals.

Asbestos contaminated land and soil is often regarded as a particular challenge to remediate by building and construction developers. 
We understand that there may be particular time constraints to commence demolition or site clearance so that ground works and construction can begin with the minimum of delay or disruption.
Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum.
However, by identifying the scope and scale of the risk by trial pitting and soil sampling, an action plan can be drawn up.
The project will meet your budget and ensures a remedial solution that reduces the impact on the surrounding environment and communities.​
Arisings undergo rigorous, independent analysis (WAC tested) prior to leaving site and are responsibly disposed off or reused somewhere else, either on-site or on another site

Choosing a dependable and experienced contractor such as ourselves is ideal for detecting dangerous asbestos.

Restaurant Asbestos Removal

We’ve helped businesses across the UK with all types of asbestos survey and removal.

We’ve been tasked with the identification and removal of asbestos from restaurant premises in Milton Keynes, Bedford, Luton and London.
If you own, run, manage or operate a restaurant with asbestos in it may or may not need removing depending on the asbestos type, location and condition.
In most cases, asbestos removal from any restaurant is recommended as the potential for cross-food contamination is great if the asbestos has been disturbed, has fractured or been damaged exposing fibres.
From asbestos in restaurant ceilings through to asbestos being used on restaurant pipework, there are lots of places you can expect to find it, even in old marley floor tiles.
Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum. 
Asbestos is a naturally occuring mineral that was in use throughout the 1940s up until the late 80s where the risks of working with asbestos became clear.
There are lots of premises across Milton Keynes, Bedford, Luton and especially London where the property build pre-dates the 1980s and therefore, it is very likely that Asbestos exists in one form or another.
In restaurants it isn’t uncommon to find asbestos being used in ceiling tiles, ceiling panels, in pipework surrounds and in flooring applications. 
The danger of asbestos presence in restaurants is the potential for food contamination as well as direct exposure to people working in and dining in the restaurant.
If you suspect your premises to contain any type of asbestos why not get in contact with us for an asbestos survey? We can evaluate and ascertain the presence of asbestos as well as the risks and removal strategy.

Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum
During the 1930s, asbestos was a widespread building material that was used up until 1999. Unfortunately, it was only then discovered to be a hazardous substance, despite millions of houses across the country being built with asbestos.At this stage, asbestos was found to release hazardous fibres into the air, which we now know can pose several health risks including COPD and lung cancer. It has been reported that there are 2500 deaths each year connected to asbestos exposure. If you suspect that there is asbestos present in your home or garage, it’s important to carry out the necessary procedures to keep your family safe.

How common is asbestos?
If your home was built before the year 2000, there’s a high chance asbestos will be present, as it was a widespread building material used throughout the 20th century. In 1999, the use of asbestos became banned. It’s typically found in several locations within a building, including:
• Roofing
• Insulation
• Pipes and Gutters
• Garages
• Cement walls
The good news is that not all asbestos is dangerous, so there’s no need to panic. Providing it’s in a stable condition, there’s nothing to worry about. Danger only occurs when the asbestos has been disturbed or damaged; causing harmful fibres to be released. These fibres can be extremely hazardous to our health.

Domestic Asbestos Removal

Protect your family from the dangers of asbestos

Exposure to asbestos in your home is a serious health and safety risk. If you have an older home that you are renovating or thinking of renovating, then be aware that asbestos may be present in building materials, roof sheeting, ceilings or insulation and should be removed.


Homes built before the 1980s could expose homeowners, their families and others to asbestos possibly hiding in cement, floor tiles, insulation, walls and pipes.

In the era of do-it-yourself home renovations, many homeowners are knocking down ceilings and walls and tearing out floor tiles and old pipes. But in their efforts to upgrade and beautify their older homes, they might unknowingly be contaminating the air they breathe with toxic asbestos fibres.


Asbestos Essentials can provide you with information about asbestos, its dangers, what to do if you suspect it’s in your home, the dos and don’ts when handling asbestos and other useful information to keep you, your family and others safe in your home.

Asbestos Essentials work to the standards demanded by all current legislation and HSE approved codes of practice, as a minimum.

  • Attic insulation
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Asbestos cement
  • Roof shingles
  • Steam pipes
  • Ceiling and Floor Tiles
  • Textured paint
  • Spray-on insulation
  • Some forms of linoleum
