What is the point of asbestos testing or asbestos bulk sampling?

Asbestos testing is an incredibly vital process to ensure the safety of residents, occupiers and workers within a building.  Testing confirms the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and prevents building users from being harmed by them.

Asbestos testing / bulk sampling is a snapshot of a suspected asbestos material that is believed to have an asbestos content.  It should not be treated as an asbestos survey as it only looks at specific, noted materials.  If you need a asbestos survey Manchester then an asbestos management survey or an asbestos refurbishment & demolition survey will be more useful.

Here are the things you should consider when hiring a professional in asbestos removal Cheshire to undertake testing for asbestos within your building.


Asbestos testing is not only worth the cost – but it is also very affordable. On top of that, it prevents the costs you can incur from exposing people to extremely harmful materials.

The risks of having exposed and disturbed asbestos can lead to terminal illnesses such as cancer, or even lung disease which could require an expensive lung transplant. Hiring the right asbestos removal company that specialise in asbestos removal services to conduct testing and analysis of the levels of exposure risks sure saves in many ways.

Preventing harm

The biggest plus in having asbestos tested is that you can take control over what is and what is not a hazardous material in your building, and make appropriate measures to mitigate any potential for asbestos exposure.

ACMs do not just pose a threat to your health, but also other building users.  Leaving these materials damaged or disturbed can pose risks to all persons entering the area within the building where they are located.

Should you decide to remodel your home, you want to know that the work is safe to perform and not at risk of disturbing something hazardous in the process. A simple investment into asbestos testing can take away all of that stress. It also adds value to your property should you choose to sell it, able to present to buyers that testing was conducted or an asbestos management survey has been completed. This means you are passing on the peace of mind to someone else that they will not run into any asbestos unexpectedly.

Prepare for removal

With testing, you get to identify the full extent of asbestos-containing materials within your property. This helps when it comes time to have them fully removed by specialists in asbestos removal Manchester and asbestos removal south Manchester.

Although it may sound like it could be an expensive operation having asbestos removed, there are some cost-effective solutions that can be discussed.  Asbestos removal can provide assurances when selling your property in the future so it may be worth having the works completed prior to selling any property.
