Asbestos Testing and Sampling
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, require an asbestos management plan to be put in place for all businesses, homes and commercial locations. Considering the HSE, removing asbestos requires a thorough assessment of your property or construction material. Asbestos cannot just be identified by yourself because it is unscented and invisible. Properties constructed before the year 2001, may still contain asbestos. Thankfully, our committed staff at Surrey Asbestos Specialists, provides expert testing and sampling services for any materials, property or location containing Asbestos. We can remove any Asbestos that is subsequently found Professionally, Safely and with the least amount of disruption possible.
If you have reason to believe there might be any presence of asbestos on your site, our team of trained specialists come and take samples on the site then send them to an accredited laboratory for testing. Afterwards the results from the lab ascertain the presence of asbestos, its type and whether it needs to be removed.
The results are usually ready within 24 to 48 hours from the time the sample is taken. A complete compilation of photographic evidence with the certificate of lab analysis determines the steps to be taken by our team of operatives: whether you want to be assured you are safe or a full plan to manage or remove the asbestos in the property.
What to do if you have asbestos
If you live in Kingston Upon Thames and think you might have asbestos in the business premises or home, the most important thing to do is have the material examined by Surrey Asbestos Specialists. The asbestos may not be a risk if it is in good condition as long as you do not tamper with the material. If you find that the asbestos is in poor condition or can be easily damaged, the best thing to do is create distance or move away from its proximity then call in for experts immediately.
How to Identify Asbestos
It is not possible to identify asbestos just through sight unless you have specific knowledge and access to lab facilities. Asbestos was liberally used in the 1990s before it was banned. Asbestos could be hidden under concrete, cement or other materials thus, the need for Surrey Asbestos Specialists’ expertise in sampling and lab testing.
