VOCs Volatile Organic Compounds Testing
VOCs refer to a diverse range of carbon-based compounds found within older building materials. Under particular conditions these materials can release inherent and stored VOCs leading to adverse health effects and conditions. The need to identify such materials will also undoubtedly become a requirement for those responsible for, and those involved with refurbishment, demolition and general construction works. EnviroHive are able to test for VOCs in the following building materials:
- Carpets, Underlays, Backings and Adhesives
- Vinyl flooring
- Cork Tiles
- Wood Block Flooring
- Floor adhesives ( bitumens and glues)
- Vinyl Wall Coverings
- Damp Proof Course
Samples of the above materials are taken onsite and subjected to laboratory testing to confirm the presence of VOCs and quantities. EnviroHive Ltd are able to undertake material testing and surveying for VOCs within building materials within Industrial, Commercial and Residential premises.
We undertake asbestos surveys as directed by UK legislation. We provide Management Asbestos Surveys & Refurbishment/Demolition Asbestos Surveys for all residential properties, commercial properties & industrial properties.
Lead Paint Surveys
Lead paint surveys & analysis are crucially important for those involved in refurbishment or renovation, particularly in period properties or listed buildings which have been neglected or have remained unchanged for some time.
