Know with certainty

Asbestos Testing

Are you aware of the health dangers associated with Asbestos? Are you a business owner, landlord, PCBU, property owner or in a position where you are required to identify and manage asbestos? If so, then getting your potential asbestos tested will determine with certainty whether the product tested contains asbestos or not. Testing for asbestos will remove any doubt.

How to test for Asbestos

The only definitive way to determine if a product has an asbestos containing material is to take physical samples and send it to an independent laboratory for testing. To take a physical sample means removing a scrapping, core drilling piece, or a solid portion of material from a building. Depending on the material multiple samples may need to be taken, however an inspector will need to determine this onsite. Once physical samples are taken it is important that the samples are sealed, and the area is left safe. A Betta report will definitively tell you if asbestos is present or not.
