Asbestos Testing of Your Business or Home in Brighton

The presence of asbestos in houses or commercial buildings can pose a danger to the health of those living or working there. However, identifying materials that contain asbestos can be complicated. There are various products and materials that might have asbestos in them if they were produced prior to the year 2000. These include pipes, water tanks, concrete, and insulation. But if you want to know for sure if something contains asbestos, you have to test for it. Finding asbestos containing materials requires a survey. It will involve getting samples and taking them to a laboratory to be tested.

Testing must be performed on materials if you are going to begin two of three types of work. For low-risk work that needs to take place, a licensed contractor is not necessary. Testing doesn't have to occur so long as the risks are managed. Testing is required for work where you have to inform the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE must be advised of the work 14 days in advance. The site also should be inspected and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the crucial stages of testing for asbestos in Brighton is to take samples and have them analysed. The techniques used aim to control disturbance of the materials. However, sometimes asbestos surveyors have to use more intrusive methods. They might have to disturb material such as floor tiles, or go through walls to take a sample. If you want to carry out any work on your home or business premises, you will have to have some samples collected. You can take samples yourself. But many people prefer to get a professional service from a surveyor.

You can take samples if a area of material has already broken off and poses no danger to you. However, you will need a professional to extract material from undamaged areas. Once your surveyor has collected samples, they will send them to a UKAS accredited laboratory. The lab will test for the existence of asbestos and confirm its presence to you and your surveyor.
