Asbestos is most likely to be found in buildings that were constructed before the mid-1980s. It can be found in the following locations;
The only way to be certain if building material contains asbestos is to have a sample analysed. If you are completing renovations to your home and are disturbing any of the above areas it is recommended sampling is completed before work starts.
Our Consultants can come to your site to inspect and collect samples for analysis. Results are usually available the next working day. If asbestos is present in the sample, we can provide you with guidance on what to do next.
Chemsafety has its own in-house IANZ Accredited laboratory. This allows us to ensure the quality of our analysis is as high as the consultancy services we provide. With fully trained analysts for both bulk asbestos sampling and fibre identification we can analyse material that may contain asbestos.
We also run Asbestos Awareness seminars that raise awareness of where asbestos can be found and the regulations on how it should be handled.
