If you have Artex ceilings or walls in your Hampshire property and you are concerned about the presence of asbestos, you may be wondering how to perform an asbestos test. Asbestos is a dangerous substance that can cause serious health problems if inhaled, and before the 1990s, Artex extensively contained asbestos in its textured coating.
Today, it is still possible to find Artex containing asbestos in older properties, so if you are planning to renovate or make changes to your home, you may be at risk. To help you ensure the safety of your home and your family, this landing page will explore the topic of asbestos in Artex, how to identify it, and how to test for it in Hampshire.

Artex is a name commonly used to refer to a range of textured coatings and finishes that were extensively used in the UK from the 1960s to the 1990s. During this period, Artex ceilings and walls were a popular choice for homeowners, due to their durability and ease of application.
However, many Artex products used during this period contained asbestos, which was added to the textured coating to increase its strength and durability. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was commonly used in a wide range of construction materials until the 1990s, when its dangers to health became more widely understood.
When asbestos-containing Artex is disturbed, for example, during renovation or removal, dangerous asbestos fibers can be released into the air. These fibers can be inhaled and cause serious health problems, including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
If you have Artex ceilings or walls and you suspect they may contain asbestos, the safest course of action is to have a professional asbestos test conducted by Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire.
Identifying asbestos in Artex is not easy, as the substance is not visible to the naked eye. The only way to confirm the presence of asbestos is to have a sample taken and tested in a specialist laboratory.
If you suspect that your Artex may contain asbestos, do not attempt to remove or disturb it yourself. You should contact a professional asbestos testing and removal company like Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire.
