Asbestos is a highly toxic mineral that was commonly used in building materials before its health hazards were discovered. It can cause serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer and mesothelioma, and is responsible for thousands of deaths every year. As a result, it is crucial to test for the presence of asbestos in buildings to ensure the safety of those who live or work in them.
If you are looking for asbestos testing in Hampshire, look no further than Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire. We are a professional, licensed asbestos testing company that specializes in identifying and removing asbestos-containing materials from buildings in Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
Asbestos minerals are naturally occurring and also highly durable, which made them highly desirable for use in construction materials. Asbestos was widely used in building materials in the UK before its dangers were known, including in cement, insulation, floor tiles, and roofing materials.
The health risks associated with asbestos come from the tiny fibres that the mineral releases into the air when it is disturbed. When these fibres are inhaled, they can cause serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
The symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can take several decades to appear after exposure, which makes them difficult to diagnose and treat. This is why it is vital to identify and remove asbestos-containing materials from buildings as soon as possible.
Asbestos testing is the only way to know for certain whether a building contains asbestos. Even if you have no reason to believe that asbestos is present in your home or workplace, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Asbestos-containing materials can become friable, meaning that they can be easily crumbled or broken, and release fibres into the air. This can happen during renovation or demolition work or through general wear and tear over time.
If you are planning to do any work that could disturb asbestos-containing materials in your home or workplace, it is crucial to have them tested and removed by a licensed asbestos professional to ensure the safety of anyone who may be exposed to them.
There are several methods used to test for asbestos, including visual inspection, surface sampling, and air sampling.
Visual inspection involves a licensed asbestos professional examining your home or workplace and identifying any materials that may contain asbestos. This method is most useful for identifying materials that are obvious, such as insulation or ceiling tiles.
Surface sampling involves taking a small sample of material suspected of containing asbestos and analysing it under a microscope. This method can confirm the presence of asbestos and identify the type of asbestos present.
Air sampling involves taking air samples in the area where asbestos-containing materials are suspected of being disturbed. These samples are analysed to determine the concentration of asbestos fibres in the air. This method can determine whether the levels of asbestos in the air are safe and whether additional actions, such as removal or containment, are necessary.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, we follow a strict procedure for asbestos testing to ensure accurate results and protect the health and safety of our clients and our team.
The first step in the process is to contact our team to schedule an asbestos survey. During this survey, our licensed asbestos professionals will visual inspect your property, identify any materials that may contain asbestos, and take samples for further analysis if necessary.
We take great care during the sampling process to minimise any potential disturbance of asbestos-containing materials to prevent the release of fibres into the air.
Once we have completed the survey, we will send any samples taken to an accredited laboratory for analysis. The results of the analysis will determine whether your home or workplace contains asbestos and, if so, the type of asbestos present.
If asbestos is identified in your property, we will provide you with a detailed report of our findings and recommendations for action, including possible removal or containment.
