There are two kinds of Asbestos Surveys which Avanti offers to domestic and commercial clients across Cumbria:

Asbestos Testing in Cumbria for Licensed Removals

Asbestos Testing in Cumbria for Licensed Works

If an R&D asbestos survey in Cumbria finds any ACMs, professional asbestos removals must be carried out. This is accompanied by professional testing to ensure that the site is clean and fit for use, post removal, and that the air is non-hazardous. Avanti works with a number of UKAS accredited independent consultancies. All air monitoring complies with the ISO17025 standard.

Four-stage clearance is the process of air monitoring following on from licensed asbestos removal in Cumbria. This is in accordance with HSE guidance note HSG 248.


Once removal is complete, the site is checked to assess its condition, and to ensure that the job has been completed satisfactorily.


A detailed visual inspection inside the enclosure/work area documents the level of cleanliness, and judges whether or not the site is in a fit state for re-occupation.


Clearance air monitoring is carried out inside the work enclosure. This checks that the level of asbestos fibres in the air falls below the recommended limits.


Once air monitoring checks demonstrate satisfactory results, Avanti issues a certificate of re-occupation, and the work enclosure is removed.

We provide air monitoring and asbestos surveys for businesses, commercial properties, and homes across Cumbria.

  • Background Air Monitoring – Used to assess whether airborne asbestos fibre levels are below the recommended limit, prior to routine remedial works.
  • Leak (enclosure check) Monitoring – Air samples inside and outside the asbestos removal work enclosure test the security of the seals which stop fibres from escaping.
  • Personal Compliance Monitoring – An air monitoring test to ensure that the level of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is appropriate for the prevailing conditions.
  • Clearance air monitoring – Carried out to determine whether the air in an asbestos removal work site complies with the recommended limits.
  • Reassurance Monitoring – Testing conducted, for example, to reassure employees that a site is safe to return to after asbestos removals are completed.
