It is first worth re-emphasising that the inspection, identification and testing of asbestos is a specialist activity which is shrouded in a wide range of policies and procedures written into legislation. It is therefore imperative that specialist advice is sought where there is a possibility of the existence and/or discovery of asbestos or asbestos containing products or components in buildings.
Textured Coatings – used as a finish onto ceilings or wall surfaces to give a decorative appearance. Textured coatings that may contain asbestos are difficult to identify from a visual inspection, as many have been painted over. The asbestos fibres are held in place within the coating and are not easily released unless sanded down, or during removal.
