Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Letchworth

The presence of asbestos in homes or commercial buildings can pose a danger to the health of those living or working there. However, identifying asbestos containing materials can be tough. There are various materials and products that might have asbestos in them if they were produced before the year 2000. These include water tanks, pipes, insulation, and concrete. But if you want to know for sure 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 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 Letchworth 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 may have to disturb material such as floor tiles, or go through walls to take a sample. 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 broken off and poses no danger to you. However, you will need 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 existence of asbestos and confirm its presence to you and your surveyor.

It should occur both before and after asbestos containing materials are disposed of or disturbed. There are several different kinds of air test. Background monitoring is used before asbestos disposal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work place during disposal of asbestos.

Reassurance monitoring helps to assure the air is free from asbestos fibres. If your building requires a Certificate of Reoccupation, 4-stage clearance control is necessary.
