Asbestos Testing

In some situations we realise that sampling of any material for asbestos can need doing immediately, with a sample analysis result as soon as possible. We're happy to offer our clients this service.

Asbestos testing involves analysing suspect materials to determine whether or not they contain any asbestos.

There are some known common asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) such as textured coatings, cement, sprayed coatings, insulation board and pipe lagging.

Testing involves taking single or bulk samples of any suspected ACM’s and having them analysed for asbestos fibres in an independent laboratory.

The results will determine whether asbestos is present, and if so, the type(s) found.

There are generally 6 types of asbestos that are found by our asbestos testing specialists. They are as follows:

  • Amosite (brown asbestos– sometimes referred to as Grunerite)
  • Crocidolite (blue asbestos)
  • Chrysotile (white asbestos)
  • Actinolite
  • Tremolite
  • Anthophylite

We provide asbestos testing in the following areas:

Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford, Keighley and across Yorkshire

Rodney Knox

Have had a great experience. Had an urgent need to get a survey done for a mortgage application. Fast and helpful response, which was very competitively priced. I'd happy recommend to others.

Laura Robotham

Dom fit us in at pretty short notice and conducted our asbestos survey. The findings were thorough and the whole thing was handled professionally. Cheers.
