The procedure..An expert analyst looks at the asbestos in a soil sample taken from the property..
The quantitative examination of asbestos in soil is made from analysis of sample soils taken from housing estates and of soils from large development sites. We likewise undertake examination of soils for various smaller undertakings.
Asbestos is altogether different from other soil contaminants. Because of its utilization in numerous kinds of structures, it can turn up in very nearly any ground, not simply zones that have been utilized industrially. It can happen in discrete pieces which may not be visible to the bare eye as finely scattered strands inside soils that require minuscule examination to distinguish their presence. The debasement of ACM’s inside soil and their potential to discharge detached fibres is increased through the passage of time, not diminished.
Notwithstanding giving a full analytical service to asbestos in soils, we can likewise provide asbestos surveys of a more general nature with the objective of helping customers/clients establish if there is a Significant Possibility of Significant Harm (SPOSH)
We can likewise provide analytical services for airborne fibres at properties where asbestos has been found in soil. This incorporates the investigation of airborne specimens by SEM so as to establish with absolute certainty the presence of asbestos fibres and where they originate… and consequently what threat it presents.
