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 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.

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.

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 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.
