Asbestos Testing of Your Business or Home in Nottingham

The presence of asbestos in houses 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 produced prior to the year 2000. These include concrete, insulation, pipes and water tanks. But if you wish to know for sure 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 performed on materials if you are going to start two of three types of work. For low-risk work that needs to take place, a licensed contractor is not required. Testing doesn't need to happen so long as the risks are managed. Testing is essential 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 surveyed and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the important stages of asbestos testing in Nottingham is to get samples and have them analysed. The methods used aim to limit disturbance of the materials. However, sometimes asbestos surveyors need to use more intrusive methods. They might need to go through walls or disturb materials such as floor tiles to take a sample. If you wish to carry out 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 area of material has already come off and poses no risk to you. However, you will need a professional to extract material from undamaged areas. Once your surveyor has taken 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.
