Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in London

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 have 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 London 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 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 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.

Background monitoring is performed before asbestos disposal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work place during disposal of asbestos.
