It is estimated that around 1.6 million UK commercial buildings contain asbestos and that asbestos may be present in as many as 14 million residential homes.
If you suspect that asbestos may be present in your property then you may want to know how to go about carrying out a check for asbestos.
The only way to test if a material contains asbestos is for a small sample to be taken and for this to be analysed by an accredited Laboratory. As the process of sampling could potentially lead to asbestos fibre release it is important that anyone undertaking the asbestos testing has appropriate training and uses suitable PPE.
