Asbestos Testing and Sampling
Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire

If you require asbestos testing and sampling in Stratford-Upon-Avon and Warwickshire contact our experts today. We can help you ensure your property is safe from asbestos.

When a business uses asbestos, there is no way of telling if the materials are safe or not without testing being done. If you are in the Stratford-Upon-Avon or greater Warwickshire area, WKA Asbestos Removal can eradicate all your worries by visiting your site and completing the necessary management surveys.

Our expert team are trained in analysing asbestos health and removal, ensuring that any dangerous asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are removed from the property so that business can resume. We have the most effective procedures and have the best modern equipment at our disposal, meaning that asbestos testing is quicker and easier than ever before. We are fully qualified by asbestos health and safety regulations have over 20 years of experience in the industry, offering a professional service for our clients across the UK.


What is Asbestos Testing?

Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are any suspect materials that can contain harmful and deadly asbestos, and taking an analysis can eliminate the risks of using said material. 

More commonly, ACMs that will need testing are cement, pipe lagging, insulation board and textured coatings, but our team will perform a thorough inspection of all walls, floors, and loft spaces on the premises. 

Single or bulk samples will need to be taken to complete inspections for the survey, so minor intrusive work may be required to gain access to certain areas. Asbestos fibres within the materials will be analysed at an external site to determine if asbestos is present and identify what type. 

This will all play a part in the asbestos removal from the site or if it is likely to produce airborne particles if disturbed. These particles can be inhaled and kill up to 5000 people a year, so they must be dealt with.

Asbestos Sampling

However, asbestos sampling must be carried out before any asbestos testing and further analysis can be completed. This should still be performed by a professional, but an asbestos licence is not legally required to do so. 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) outlines that if suspect material has already broken into pieces, you can sample this. You should, of course, be wary of dust inhalation or spreading debris around the worksite, so hiring a team of asbestos surveyors to complete the work can ensure the job is being done safely.

Any asbestos materials are likely to be harmful and must be treated as such until proven otherwise and can be commonly found in building materials. We have experience dealing with construction sites and contractors, so get in touch if that concerns you.

Here at WKA Asbestos Removal, we have knowledge of the correct practices and can send your sample to a credited UKAS testing laboratory, making the process much easier. We will break down the results for you and advise on what we believe is the best course moving forward. 


Do I need asbestos testing?

Most of the time, asbestos-containing materials are not harmful and can be left alone. However, when disturbed, it can produce airborne asbestos particles and become toxic to the property and the people inside. This is why we recommend having asbestos testing carried out before any refurbishment work or remedial projects. 

Both domestic properties and commercial buildings can benefit from having asbestos testing conducted on-site, but it is not a legal requirement to perform it on either. As a duty holder on non-domestic property, you are expected and required to 'manage asbestos' as outlined in the Control Of Asbestos Regulation 2012.

Any information required about the asbestos's location, amount, type, and health within a property can only be determined with testing and sampling. An asbestos management plan can be devised from those results. An asbestos register and risk assessment can be created for your business, giving anyone peace of mind that you are taking the necessary steps to protect people.

Where should I have tested?

Some of the more common locations you will find asbestos, and it is advised you should get testing done, are:

  • Asbestos cement on garages or shed roofing
  • Asbestos cemented drain pipes
  • Insulation board soffits and partitions
  • Wall panels on garages

These are not guaranteed, but our trained team are experienced in such procedures and can conduct an inspection for you. It's not advisable to attempt removing asbestos yourself, as you can cause more damage to asbestos health by doing so, so always enlist a professional service.
