Asbestos Testing of Your Business or Home in Leeds

The presence of asbestos in homes or commercial properties can pose a threat to the health of those working or living there. However, identifying materials that contain asbestos can be challenging. There are different products and materials that may have asbestos in them if they were made prior to 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 getting 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 required. Testing doesn't need to happen as long as the risks are managed. Testing is essential for work where you need to notify the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE must be informed of the work 14 days in advance. The site also must be surveyed and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the important stages of asbestos testing in Leeds 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 might 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 enlist a professional service from a surveyor.

You can take samples if a segment of material has already come off 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.
