Why Asbestos Testing Matters

Asbestos exposure poses serious health risks, including lung diseases and cancers. Therefore, it’s essential to identify and manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) properly. Legal and regulatory bodies mandate asbestos testing, especially when dealing with properties constructed before the asbestos ban. Our professional testing services are designed to detect even trace amounts of asbestos, ensuring compliance with regulations and the protection of your health.

Expert Asbestos Testing Services

All samples are sent to independent UKAS-accredited laboratories for meticulous analysis. We use experienced, independent technicians that are equipped with advanced knowledge and the latest equipment to conduct thorough testing. They utilise precise sampling methods that minimise disturbance while collecting samples from suspected ACMs.
