Are you concerned that your home in Hampshire may contain asbestos? Asbestos is a dangerous material that was commonly used in construction until the late 1990s. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we are a leading asbestos testing company that serves Hampshire and the surrounding areas in South East England. We specialize in testing materials in homes and buildings for the presence of asbestos. In this article, we will explain how an asbestos test is done in your home in Hampshire.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in the construction industry due to its properties as an insulator, fire retardant, and strengthening agent. However, it was later discovered that exposure to asbestos fibers can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other serious respiratory diseases. In the UK, the use of asbestos in construction materials was banned in 1999.
Asbestos can be found in a variety of building materials, including insulation, flooring, pipes, cement, and roofing. If these materials are damaged, asbestos fibers can be released into the air and can be inhaled. Asbestos fibers are extremely small and can remain in the air for a long time, making it easy for individuals to inhale them without realizing it.
If you suspect that your home in Hampshire may contain asbestos, it is important to get an asbestos test performed. An asbestos test will identify if asbestos is present in your home, and if so, where and to what extent. This information can help you to take appropriate steps to protect yourself and your family from exposure to asbestos fibers.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we follow a comprehensive process when testing for asbestos in your home or building.
Our team of highly skilled technicians will visit your home in Hampshire and conduct a thorough survey to identify materials that may contain asbestos. We will take samples of all suspect materials and label them clearly to ensure accurate analysis.
The samples collected during the survey will be sent to an accredited laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will use specialized equipment to determine if asbestos fibers are present in the samples and, if so, to what extent.
Once we receive the results of the laboratory analysis, we will provide you with a detailed report that outlines any asbestos-containing materials found in your home, their location, and the extent of the asbestos fibers present. Based on the results, we will give you recommendations for how to manage the asbestos in your home, including whether removal is necessary.
