Facts And Questions

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals. In turn, each mineral consists of microscopic fibres. The substance is resistant to heat and was exceedingly popular in the construction industry. Once branded the “miracle mineral,” asbestos was used in scores of everyday products and building materials.

WHY IS ASBESTOS DANGEROUS?

When asbestos is disturbed and fibres are released into the air, a serious health risk emerges. The inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause different types of cancer, such as mesothelioma – a fatal disease of the lung lining – and asbestos-related lung cancer. Asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs, is also a related illness, as is diffuse pleural thickening, where membranes within the lungs and chest expand.

At least 3,500 people die each year from asbestos-related diseases. Given a latency period of between 10 and 60 years from exposure, that figure is likely to rise.

HOW MANY SAMPLES DO I NEED TO TAKE?

For advice on sampling procedures, please refer to the official Health and Safety Executive guidance, as contained in Section 5 of HSG264 – Asbestos: The Survey Guide.

HOW MUCH MATERIAL SHOULD BE IN EACH SAMPLE?

Again, we strongly recommend that customers refer to HSG264 – Asbestos: The Survey Guide for such matters.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE THE TEST RESULTS?

Samples are typically analysed within 48hrs of receipt. Results will be generated promptly, and certificates of analysis are emailed back to the customer on the same day.

DO I NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PURCHASE A KIT?

No. There is an option to checkout as a guest using your debit or credit card.

DO YOU SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED KINGDOM?

No. Due to Customs restrictions, we cannot accept samples from outside the United Kingdom unfortunately.

DOES MY BUILDING CONTAIN ASBESTOS?

Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was exceedingly popular as a construction material. Properties built in this period, especially after World War II, may still contain asbestos. A final UK ban covering all forms of asbestos was implemented in 1999, but various estimates suggest that nearly 2 million commercial properties may still contain asbestos, making it the biggest occupational health hazard in Great Britain.

WHERE CAN ASBESTOS BE FOUND?

Asbestos can be found in over 3,000 different building materials. Common examples include:

  • Asbestos Insulating Board, often used in ceiling tiles, partition walls, insulation and outdoor soffits
  • Asbestos Cement, commonly used on roofs, panels and outdoor piping
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Textured Coatings, such as Artex

This list is by no means exhaustive.

IS SELF-SAMPLING SAFE?

By following our detailed instructions, you can take samples from suspected asbestos containing materials in a safe and successful manner. With our kits, you can take samples from numerous different locations and materials, commonly found around the home.

However, we must stress that the kits are not best suited for testing contaminated land, pipe lagging or sprayed coatings.

On larger scale jobs of this calibre, or if you are in any doubt at all, we recommend contacting us for more detailed guidance.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY SAMPLES CONTAIN ASBESTOS?

If your samples contain asbestos, we’re always available to provide further guidance. This often takes the form of full asbestos surveys, air monitoring and removal. Simply contact us for free and impartial advice from industry experts.

CAN I STAGGER THE RETURN OF MY SAMPLES?

No. All samples from each respective property, and therefore each kit, must be returned at the same time.
