One of the questions I get asked a lot from clients is “Why should I do an asbestos survey in Perth”? My answer is always the same: “It’s your money at stake. If there are signs of asbestos you don’t want to waste”. I think this makes a lot of sense and I’m not just putting it down to making more money. I think it’s also important for people to understand why they need to get an asbestos survey to begin with.
It may not be obvious to you at first glance, but there are many good reasons why you should have an asbestos survey. For one thing, if there is a suspected asbestos related problem then you really need to find out the condition it’s in. The reason is because if you find out that it’s only a symptom of something else, then you may not have a clear idea of what the problem is. In these circumstances, a professional asbestos survey London can help you identify the problem and therefore provide the best treatment possible.
Another reason why you should have an asbestos survey carried out is to monitor safety. Asbestos is known to cause lung cancer and as a result it’s a very big reason to avoid contact with anyone who has the condition. If the risk is identified and investigated, then the correct measures can be introduced to reduce the number of people who are likely to contract the condition. Of course, the longer you wait before getting rid of it the more likely it is that you will need to carry out an asbestos survey.
You may be asking “How is my money going to be spent on asbestos surveys?” This is very simple, because you can simply ask companies to send you the surveys for you. Usually these companies offer to send out three each year at a cost based on the size of the company and how many employees they employ. This way you only pay for the survey when you actually need it.
So now you know why you should carry out asbestos surveys and you probably wonder where you should start. Well if you are a business then you should find a company that offers this as part of their service. Of course if you want the results straightaway then you should opt for the DIY method. This involves a lot more effort and research, so if you don’t have the time or don’t feel confident about carrying it out, then don’t take the risk. Remember that there are several good quality products on the market to help you identify the asbestos in your buildings.
As long as you’re aware of the reason why you should carry out the survey, then you’ll have no problems. As long as you’re aware of what your options are and you make the best decision for yourself then you shouldn’t have too much to worry about. Always remember that it’s better to spend a little more and get a good quality result than it is to try and save a few dollars and end up with poor quality.
