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.

If you want to perform 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 piece of material has already been broken and poses no threat to you. However, you will require a professional to extract material from intact areas. Once your surveyor has collected samples, they will send them to a UKAS accredited laboratory. The lab will test for the presence of asbestos and confirm its existence to you and your surveyor.
