Over 30 years' expertise in asbestos surveys and removal

An asbestos survey arranged by Northwest Asbestos will assist to identify asbestos containing materials in your building.

When it comes to dealing with asbestos, you need professional hazardous materials consultants to ensure you understand the risks and have the right processes in place from the start. By taking a proactive approach and surveying your building for asbestos, you can prevent discoveries by untrained workers. This approach can also help you to avoid expensive health and safety problems, unplanned delays and penalties.


UK regulations require that all buildings suspected of containing asbestos materials must have an asbestos survey conducted. Many domestic and commercial buildings built prior to 1990 will generally have some asbestos present, thus will require an asbestos survey.


A complete survey package:

Initial assessments

Our survey involves a combination of visual inspection of the accessible areas of the building. We also survey Artex suspected or confirmed to contain asbestos.

An assessment can determine asbestos composition and type, through mineralogical analysis and the material friability. The 'risk to health' assessment is based on the condition of the asbestos, potential disturbance and occupancy level of the property or structure.

Northwest Asbestos Removals offers asbestos sampling services to identify the type of asbestos present.


Suspected asbestos samples can be analysed by an accredited laboratory to identify if asbestos is present in the material. The results of the asbestos survey are tabulated in a register.

The results of testing can provide peace of mind as to confirm whether the material actually contains asbestos or not. If the results of testing confirms that the material does not contain asbestos, this will reduce the cost of your renovation or demolition.

Very pleased with excellent service. Needed to have the existing asbestos waste pipe from the toilet replaced. Sent Ian a photo and was quickly given a quote. Dave and Ian arrived early on agreed day and quickly removed the old pipe and installed a new one. The old pipe was safely removed and site cleared of debris and left tidy. Fully recommend their services.”
