Asbestos in old properties
When you know that you are living in an older residential building, you should maintain awareness regarding the possible existence of asbestos materials within your property. Asbestos may become a potential risk for the health of your family and further contaminate the surrounding environment.
Asbestos was widely used in the construction industry in Australia in between 1945 and 1980. It was widely used for various things including:
- Roofing sheet
- Floor tiles
Generally, there are two types of asbestos which are friable and non-friable asbestos. Non-friable asbestos is less harmful compared to the friable one. However, DO remember that ALL asbestos material is hazardous. Once it gets weathered it may get brittle and becomes friable. When it gets brittle, it can break and release fibres into the air. That is when the product causes some risks for our health.
What you need to know is that asbestos fibres are small and thin, much thinner than a human hair. Asbestos fibres need to be closely and carefully examined using a specialised microscopic procedure. Thus, you will need a license-holder removalist to perform such meticulous work.
Our Asbestos Testing Processes
You are advised to hire a competent licensed person who has obtained knowledge and skills to perform asbestos testing jobs competently.
Our Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team are able to identify asbestos and is:
- accustomed to building and construction procedures to be able to determine the location of materials containing asbestos.
- capable of determining whether the suspect material is friable or non-friable and examining its condition.
- trained to manage and collect sampling, have the information and experience to recognise asbestos and can decide risks and control measures if needed.
To identify asbestos, the Asbestos testing Bundaberg Team may perform these processes:
- Identify potential asbestos contamination – the Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team will check all suspect locations in your property. The locations of asbestos are sometimes in places like rooms with radiator and heating systems, extensive duct work, or areas with traditional wiring circuits.
- Prepare for misting – the Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team will wear a P2 respirator mask and gloves. We will turn off the ventilation, cooling or heating appliances before we collect the sample. The Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team will also lay a plastic sheet on the floor.
- Moisten the area – we will wet the suspect material by spraying water repeatedly. Our Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team will ensure to minimise the release of asbestos fibres from the suspect material.
- Place sample in a bag – we will put the sample in a 200-micron thick plastic bag. Our Asbestos Testing Bundaberg Team will label the plastic bag with an ID number, the time and date of sample collection.
- Send the samples – we will send the sample to a NATA-accredited laboratory. The sample may be analysed with microscopic analysis techniques such as polarised light microscopy or stereo microscope analysis.
- Final report – The report will be delivered direct to your email inbox ASAP. The report may include information such as the area, the type and the methods employed to test.
