What to do if you find asbestos in your house

If the case is you are living in a house which was constructed before 1980, there is a high chance it will have asbestos in it. Unfortunately, asbestos fibres are so fine (700-1000 times finer than that of hair) they are not visible through naked eyes. Therefore the only way to identify them, or find out whether your house actually has asbestos, is to look for probable places asbestos was used and then consult a laboratory and licensed inspector to test it.

If you are suspicious of asbestos being present in your house and want to test for asbestos in your home, call a licensed asbestos inspector. Here at Envirochem will can come out to your property and take a sample of any suspicious material. They will also advise you to take precautions while it is done, such as removing furniture, etc. The sample is  then tested in our UKAS accredited laboratory for asbestos. On our website is also helpful links to where asbestos may be in a domestic house.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

The impacts of outdoor air pollution are well documented with less attention paid to the importance of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). IAQ refers to the quality of the air in and around buildings and is impacted by gases such as carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide as well as VOCs, particulates and microbial contaminants.

We can be exposed to these contaminants at both work and home with the main impacts to health to the heart and lungs. The overall impact is reliant on the concentrations and exposure to these contaminants.

We have the ability to monitor the levels of these contaminants through both passive and active systems to identify whether levels are within specified standards.

New Shame for Southampton for breaching safe levels for fine particles in the air, known as PM2.5.

The City of Southampton is among that of 40 locations around the UK that have been found to be breaching safety levels set by the World Heath Organisation (WHO). Southampton has recently been found again to have high levels of air pollution.

Public Health England have released figures for the percentage of adult deaths in the city attributed to the air pollution was 6.3% in 2011, the highest percentage for the South East.

However, Southampton is set to be only 1 of 5 cities in the UK to begin new low emissions zones in 2020, this will see some diesel vehicles charged to drive in the city centre.

The WHO have warned that poor air quality is a major cause of disease and death. One of the ways that the WHO assesses air quality is by looking at the levels of pollution know as particulate matter (PMs). It has been found that 11 urban areas across the UK have exceed the safe limit set for PM10 and 40 towns and cities have breached the limits set for PM2.5.

The risk of conditions such as Stroke, Heart Disease and asthma increases as air quality declines, in these areas that breached the safe limits,

Monitoring lead in air

A new client of Envirochem within the oil and gas industry, have contacted our occupational hygiene team to help with monitoring lead in air.

This is while their contracted workforce are stripping and servicing old storage tanks ready to be used again. We have set up both personal and static background monitoring within the tanks, and all activity in and out of each tank across the day is logged to work out the personal exposure.

We will now analysis the samples back at our lab to check the dust concentration of both inhalable and respirable dust, as well as metal content using our ICP-OES, with the primary focus being the lead concentration.
