Often once you have had a home buyers survey the surveyor may make reference to possible asbestos materials within the property. This could be in the form of roof tiles, textured coatings or panelling.
In order to confirm if a material contains asbestos a small sample needs to be taken and analysed under a microscope for asbestos fibres. The process itself involves a qualified asbestos surveyor visiting the site and taking a sample of the suspect material – this sample is then analysed at a UKAS accredited laboratory. Typically the process takes between 24-48 hours.
