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.

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.
