Asbestos Sampling & Testing

Asbestos Sampling & Testing

If you suspect you have asbestos on site, then a sample needs to be taken. This can be done one of two ways:

  1. We will send an experienced asbestos surveyor to your site to take the required samples of the suspected asbestos containing materials (ACM) using the correct and safe methods. We will always leave the sample point in a safe, sealed condition once the sampling is completed. This is the most preferred option. This is the safest and most practical way of completing this task.
  1. You could bring a suspected asbestos sample to our office directly where we will then ensure it is safely transported to the laboratory.

How Asbestos Sampling & Testing Works

Once we have the suspect asbestos sample it will be sent to a UKAS accredited laboratory for testing. This process allows the laboratory to break down the product in a controlled environment to determine which type of asbestos – if any – are present within the material. They will determine whether it is: amosite (brown asbestos), chrysotile (white asbestos) or crocidolite (blue asbestos).

Once identified then Midlands Asbestos Solutions can offer a properly tailored solution.

Asbestos Testing Results

Midlands Asbestos Solutions offer an efficient testing process to get your results back within 24 hours. This is called a fast-track service, which allows us to take immediate action. We also offer a standard service where sample results are available within 3 – 5 working days.

Our experience and expertise enables us to provide you with a test report that will detail whether or not the sample taken was positive for asbestos. If you’re having any works carried out at home, this can be extremely useful for any contractors that may be operating within your property.

We are fully licensed and qualified to remove, encapsulate or safely dispose of all types of asbestos. Once you have received the results of the asbestos sampling we can then offer a tailored removal plan. This might involve Midlands Asbestos Solutions attending your site quickly and efficiently to assess the volume of removal works. We will offer a no obligation quotation that allows you to consider what course of action to take.
