Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Aldridge

Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Aldridge

The presence of asbestos in homes or commercial properties can pose a threat to the health of those working or living there. However, identifying asbestos containing materials can be difficult. There are different materials and products that may have asbestos in them if they were made before the year 2000. These include concrete, insulation, pipes and water tanks. But if you wish to know for certain if something contains asbestos, you need to test for it. Finding asbestos containing materials requires a survey. It will involve taking samples and sending them to a laboratory to be tested.

Testing must be carried out on materials if you are going to start two of three types of work. For low-risk work that is going to take place, a licensed contractor is not needed. Testing doesn't need to happen as long as the risks are managed. Testing is necessary for work where you need to notify the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE must be informed of the work 2 weeks in advance. The site also must be surveyed and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the important stages of asbestos testing in Aldridge is to get samples and have them analysed. The methods used aim to minimise disturbance of the materials. However, sometimes asbestos surveyors need to use more aggressive methods. They may need to go through walls or disturb materials such as floor tiles to take a sample. If you wish to conduct any work on your business premises or home, you will need to have some samples collected. You can get samples yourself. But many people prefer to use a professional service from a surveyor.

You can take samples if a segment of material has already been broken and poses no risk to you. However, you will require a professional to extract material from undamaged areas. Once your surveyor has taken samples, they will deliver them to a laboratory accredited by UKAS. The lab will test for the presence of asbestos and confirm its existence to you and your surveyor.

The Importance of Asbestos Air Testing in Aldridge

There is another element to asbestos testing in Aldridge, and that is asbestos air testing. The Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 has rules for companies. It establishes that there should be no more than 0.1 fibres of asbestos per millimetre in the air over four hours. An air testing surveyor for Aldridge should perform this test. It should take place both before and after asbestos containing materials are removed or disturbed. There are various different types of air test. Background monitoring is conducted before asbestos removal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work area during removal of asbestos.

Reassurance monitoring helps to guarantee the air is free of asbestos fibres. If your property needs a Certificate of Reoccupation, 4-stage clearance control is required.
