Suspected asbestos materials can sometimes be discovered during maintenance or refurbishment work, or even when buying a new property or home. Work must be stopped in the area to prevent disturbance and potential exposure.
Only ever a phone call away, M&W can make emergency site or home visits to collect samples of the suspect material, which will be couriered to a UKAS accredited laboratory for fast-track analysis. We can often achieve a turn round in less than 24 hours, with certificates of analysis being sent on by email.
Where required, M&W can further advise on how any confirmed asbestos materials should be dealt.
There are 3 types of asbestos fibre commonly found:
- Chrysotile (White)
- Amosite (Brown)
- Crocidolite (Blue)
