Asbestos Testing of Your Business or Home

Asbestos Testing of Your Business or Home

The presence of asbestos in houses or commercial properties can pose a danger to the health of those working or living there. However, identifying materials that contain asbestos can be complicated. There are various products and materials that might have asbestos in them if they were produced prior to the year 2000. These include pipes, water tanks, concrete, and insulation. But if you want 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 begin 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 inspected and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the crucial stages of asbestos testing 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 want to carry out any work on your home or business premises, 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 danger to you. However, you will need a professional to extract material from undamaged areas. Once your surveyor has collected 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.

The Importance of Asbestos Air Testing

There is another aspect to asbestos testing, and that is asbestos air testing. The Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 has guidelines for businesses. It states that there should be less than 0.1 fibres of asbestos per millimetre in the air over four hours. An air testing surveyor should carry out this test. It should occur both before and after asbestos containing materials are moved or disturbed. There are several different kinds of air test. Background monitoring is used before asbestos removal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work area during removal of asbestos.

Reassurance monitoring helps to establish the air is free of asbestos fibres. If your building requires a Certificate of Reoccupation, 4-stage clearance control is necessary. Another technique is personal monitoring. It is used to guarantee the safety of the person wearing the sampling pump. Before carrying out any tests or work, make sure you know the requirements.
