In this guide, we will explore the process of asbestos testing and how our team can help you get your property tested for asbestos.
Before we dive into the process of asbestos testing, it is important to understand what asbestos is, and why it is considered dangerous.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring, fibrous mineral that was commonly used in construction materials, such as insulation and tiles, due to its heat-resistant properties. However, prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to serious health problems, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.
The danger of asbestos lies in the fact that it can release microscopic fibres into the air when disturbed, which can be inhaled and cause damage to the lungs over time. This is why it is important to have any suspected asbestos-containing materials tested and removed by professionals to ensure the safety of yourself and others in the property.
Asbestos testing is the process of determining whether an object or material contains asbestos. This is typically done by collecting a sample of the material and analyzing it under a microscope to look for asbestos fibres.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer two types of asbestos testing services asbestos sampling and asbestos surveys.
Asbestos sampling involves collecting a small sample of the material suspected to contain asbestos using specialized equipment, such as a coring tool or punch. The sample is then analyzed in a laboratory to determine whether it contains asbestos fibres.
To get started with asbestos sampling, you can fill out our online form with your contact details and the details of the property to be tested. We will then arrange a convenient time to visit your property to take the necessary samples.
Asbestos surveys involve a more comprehensive inspection of the property to identify all materials that may contain asbestos. This type of survey is typically required for commercial or industrial properties, where asbestos-containing materials may be more widespread.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we offer HSG264 asbestos surveys, which are the industry standard for managing asbestos-containing materials. These surveys involve an inspection of the entire property and a report detailing any materials containing asbestos and the recommended action to be taken.
To arrange an asbestos survey for your property, please give us a call at 01962 458066 or email us at [email protected].
After the samples have been taken and analyzed, you will receive a report detailing the result of the asbestos testing. If asbestos is found in the material, our team of professionals will work with you to determine the next steps, which may include asbestos removal or management.
If you decide to proceed with asbestos removal, our team of licensed professionals will carry out the removal safely and effectively, following all necessary regulations and guidelines.
