If you're planning on renovating or performing maintenance on an older building, it's important to have the structure tested for asbestos. This material was widely used in building construction before the 1980s, and if it's present in your building, it can pose serious health risks to anyone who breathes its fibers.
Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire is a leading asbestos testing company based in Hampshire, UK. We have extensive experience analyzing asbestos samples from buildings throughout the region, and we can help you determine whether your building contains this hazardous material. In this landing page, we'll discuss our asbestos testing services in more detail and explain how to go about getting your building tested.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in building materials from the 1940s through the 1980s. Its heat-resistant properties and durability made it attractive for use in insulation, roofing, flooring, and other applications. Unfortunately, asbestos is also a known carcinogen, and inhaling its microscopic fibers can lead to lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other serious illnesses.
Asbestos is still present in many older buildings throughout Hampshire and the rest of the UK, particularly those constructed before the 1980s. This is why it's so important to have a building tested for asbestos before conducting any renovation or repair work.
There are several compelling reasons to have your building tested for asbestos:
Health risks: As we've mentioned, asbestos exposure can lead to serious health problems, particularly for those who work in or around the material on a regular basis.
Legal requirements: If you're planning to renovate or demolish a building that contains asbestos, you may be required by law to have the material removed by a licensed professional.
Peace of mind: Knowing that your building is asbestos-free can give you peace of mind and eliminate potential liability issues down the line.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we use state-of-the-art equipment and procedures to test for asbestos in buildings throughout Hampshire and the surrounding areas. Our team of trained professionals takes samples of materials suspected of containing asbestos and conducts a thorough analysis to determine whether the material is safe or hazardous.
Our asbestos testing services include:
Visual inspection: Our team will visually inspect your building to identify potential asbestos-containing materials. We'll take note of any areas where materials may be damaged or exposed.
Sample collection: Our team will take samples of suspected asbestos-containing materials for laboratory analysis. We'll label and package the samples according to industry standards to ensure accurate results.
Laboratory analysis: We'll send the collected samples to a certified laboratory for analysis. The lab will then test the samples for the presence of asbestos fibers and report back to us with the results.
Report generation: After we receive the lab results, we'll generate a comprehensive report that outlines our findings and recommendations. If asbestos is present, we'll provide you with guidance on next steps, including removal options.
If you're unsure whether your building contains asbestos, a professional survey can help you determine the presence and extent of the material. Our asbestos surveys are designed to provide you with a clear picture of your building's asbestos status, so you can take appropriate action to protect yourself and your employees or tenants.
Our asbestos survey services include:
Management surveys: These inspections are designed to identify whether asbestos is present in a building and assess the condition of any asbestos-containing materials.
Refurbishment surveys: If you're planning to refurbish or renovate a building, a refurbishment survey can determine whether asbestos is present in areas that will be disturbed during the work.
Demolition surveys: If you plan to demolish a building, a demolition survey can identify the presence of asbestos and provide guidance on safe removal and disposal.
