Asbestos testing is the only way to confirm the presence of asbestos in a property

Our Asbestos Testing Process

Asbestos testing services in Edinburgh play a crucial role in protecting the environment and the people in it from the dangers of asbestos. If asbestos is found in a building, it must be properly removed to prevent it from releasing fibres into the air.

However, it’s important to note that asbestos removal should only be done by trained and licensed professionals. The first step in the process is to assess the building to determine if asbestos is present. If so, the professionals will then decide on the most effective and safest way to remove it.

During the removal process, the asbestos material will be carefully wrapped in a special type of paper that prevents it from becoming airborne, and then sealed in bags. In some cases, the material will be transported and disposed of in a safe environment.

By engaging the services of a professional asbestos removal company, you can ensure that the asbestos is removed safely and effectively, protecting both your health and the environment.

Asbestos testing should be conducted by trained and qualified professionals.

My home underwent an asbestos survey by Asbestos Removal Glasgow Ltd, who also checked the entire property for asbestos. The report was quite effective and returned earlier than anticipated. The office personnel and asbestos assessor were highly competent, and they helped me avoid spending tens of thousands of pounds on a new home!

Different types of asbestos testing

There are three main types of asbestos testing available in Edinburgh: visual inspection, air sampling, and bulk sampling.

Each type of testing serves a different purpose and is used to detect the presence of asbestos in different ways.

Visual inspection is a method used for detecting asbestos in materials and structures. Professionals will examine the structure and materials to determine if they contain asbestos. If asbestos is present, other methods will be used to confirm its presence in the building.

Air sampling is a technique used to detect the presence of asbestos in the air. Professionals will use specialized equipment to collect air samples that are then sent to a laboratory for analysis. This helps to determine if asbestos fibres are present in the air, and if so, where they are located in the building.

Bulk sampling is a method used to detect asbestos in the soil. Professionals will collect samples of soil and send them to a laboratory for analysis. This helps to determine if asbestos is present in the soil, and if so, where it is located in the building.

By using these different types of asbestos testing, professionals can accurately identify the presence and location of asbestos in a building, which is critical for safe and effective asbestos removal.

Asbestos testing methods include bulk samples, air samples and surface samples.

The results of asbestos testing are used to determine the appropriate course of action, which can be asbestos removal, encapsulation or just leaving it undisturbed.

Regulations relating to Asbestos Testing

Asbestos testing services are essential in Edinburgh because they can identify the presence of asbestos in your surroundings. Detecting asbestos is vital because it can seriously endanger your health if it’s not detected and removed promptly.

Moreover, if your property is contaminated with asbestos, you may face difficulty selling or renting it out. You may even be subject to penalties if you fail to take the necessary steps to remove it.

In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for regulating asbestos. They have established strict rules and regulations regarding asbestos to ensure the safety of the public. The HSE recommends having your building inspected for asbestos every 10 years to ensure that it remains safe and healthy for occupants.

By engaging the services of a professional asbestos testing company, you can ensure that your property is free from the dangers of asbestos, protecting both your health and your investments.
