Professional Asbestos Air Testing in Epsom

Here at Lambeth Scientific Services Ltd, we offer a range of asbestos services throughout Epsom, including asbestos air testing.

Asbestos is now a banned substance, though is still prevalent in many buildings. Whilst it poses no risk in solid form, it can be very dangerous when disturbed – this is because its carcinogenic fibres can be inhaled and cause serious health complications. It is therefore vital to determine where asbestos is located and assess its condition – which is where asbestos air testing comes in.
Our professionals follow strict protocols when carrying out air testing to protect both ourselves and the general public. We section off the site, allowing access to only those directly involved in the testing process.
Using specialist equipment, we collect a sample of air to be analysed by our asbestos experts. Following any findings of asbestos, we provide you with the steps required to make your premises safe.

Reliable Asbestos Sampling

Even in solid form, asbestos can be difficult to identify by sight alone as it is often mixed with other materials. Asbestos sampling refers to the collection of materials from the site, which are categorised and studied under a microscope to determine the presence of asbestos.
Our in-house team carries out asbestos sampling to a high standard throughout Epsom and has excellent attention to detail. In fact, sampling is often carried out as part of an overall site survey when a building is due to undergo repairs, renovations or demolition.

Expert Asbestos Air Monitoring

Do you need reassurance that all traces of asbestos have been eliminated? Asbestos fibres are invisible to the naked eye, so even after it has been removed from a site, it is still crucial to check for any remaining fibres – this is where air monitoring is necessary by testing a sample of air from a site. Usually carried out as part of a four-stage clearance, we offer air monitoring services throughout Epsom to businesses and households.
