Asbestos Sampling Options

Option 1 – Send your sample direct to us (prices starting from £49.00 +VAT)

  • Lay down a disposable plastic sheet to catch any loose material that may fall off while taking the sample
  • Wear disposable gloves and PPE (read the HSE guidelines for more information)
  • Wet the material using a fine mist of water containing a few drops of detergent before taking the sample. The mist will reduce the release of fibres
  • Carefully cut a thumbnail piece from the entire depth of the material using pliers or choose a piece that has already broken off
  • Place the small piece into a self-sealing polythene bag
  • Put this in a second self-sealing bag
  • Label the bag with the date, location and any other information that may be useful to the laboratory
  • Use a damp disposable rag to clean up any material around the area sampled
  • Seal the edges with waterproof sealant where the sample was taken
  • Carefully wrap the plastic drop sheet and secure with tape. Place this in a thick plastic waste bag
  • Wipe down all tools and equipment used with a damp rag
  • Place disposable gloves, coveralls and damp rag into the plastic bag with the drop sheet and seal the bag. Place the sealed bag, inside another sealable bag. Mark the outer bag as containing asbestos waste and dispose of it at a facility licenced to accept asbestos waste.
