Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Exeter

The presence of asbestos in houses or commercial buildings can pose a risk to the health of those living or working there. However, identifying asbestos containing materials can be tough. There are several materials and products that could have asbestos in them if they were made before the year 2000. These include water tanks, pipes, insulation, and concrete. But if you want to know for certain if something contains asbestos, you have to test for it. Identifying asbestos containing materials requires a survey. It will involve taking samples and taking them to a laboratory to be tested.

Testing must be conducted on materials if you are going to undertake two of three types of work. For low-risk work that has 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 need to inform the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE must be informed of the work 2 weeks in advance. The site also must be inspected and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the critical stages of testing for asbestos in Exeter 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 aggressive methods. They may 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 enlist 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 laboratory accredited by UKAS. The lab will test for the existence of asbestos and confirm its presence to you and your surveyor.

The Importance of Asbestos Air Testing in Exeter

There is another aspect to asbestos testing in Exeter, and that is asbestos air testing. The Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 has guidelines for businesses. It states that there should be less than 0.1 fibres of asbestos per millimetre in the air over four hours. An air testing surveyor for Exeter should carry out this test. It should occur both before and after asbestos containing materials are moved or disturbed. There are several different kinds of air test. Background monitoring is used before asbestos removal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work area during removal of asbestos.

Reassurance monitoring helps to assure the air is free of asbestos fibres. If your building requires a Certificate of Reoccupation, 4-stage clearance control is necessary. Another technique is personal monitoring. It is used to guarantee the safety of the person wearing the sampling pump. Before carrying out any tests or work, make sure you know the requirements.
