Asbestos isn’t simply on the roof or within the walls of a structure. Due to the nature of the fibres, asbestos can be located in a variety of places around a property, as well as throughout your surrounding suburb. Testing for the material is critical to making sure that health risks such as lung cancer and mesothelioma are minimised.

1.Airborne:

This important test is to help determine whether or not asbestos particles are found in the air. Using Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM), these tests are routinely carried out at abatement sites and can be used for a wide variety of reasons. These include environmental surveying, personal monitoring as well as minor abatement clearance testing.

2.Materials used in bulk building:

Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM) is the popular technique that is typically used to analyse bulk building materials. PLM can help detect the difference between asbestos and non-asbestos fibres, as well as group the various subspecies within the asbestos family.

3.Soil and sediment:

This type of Asbestos testing is vital for any environmental investigations, with samples being taken to find out if there are things like illegal dumping taking place.

4.Settled dust / non-building materials:

This remains a controversial point throughout the environmental industry. Conducted when establishing baseline levels or surveying historical buildup.

5.Water samples:
This Asbestos testing is typically conducted throughout the community on a wider scale, as opposed to an individual property. As well as water pipes, effluent and water streams are usually tested for contamination also.

Although traditionally coming in solid sheets of fibro or other forms, breakage and deterioration can cause asbestos to splinter into little pieces and spread throughout the home.
