When it comes to the presence of asbestos in a residential or commercial property, it’s not always easy to detect – at least not to the naked eye. More often than not, it’s located behind walls or ceilings, or makes up the wall or ceiling itself. While asbestos is no longer used in the construction of homes or commercial properties, it was quite popular from the 1950s to the late 1980s and is suspected to still be in about one third of homes in Melbourne and across Australia.
If your home was built in that period and has not been tested, get in touch with Aussie Asbestos Solutions for comprehensive asbestos testing in Melbourne. Servicing the entire metropolitan area as well as the Mornington Peninsula, we can determine how much of the harmful substance is on your property, if any, and provide you with options for its safe removal and disposal.
HOW MANY TYPES OF ASBESTOS DO WE TEST FOR?
The three most common types of asbestos are Chyrsotile (white asbestos), Amosite (brown asbestos), and Crocidolite (blue asbestos) – which is considered to be the most harmful. Asbestos products come in two forms – friable, which is the product in its loose, fibrous state that can be easily crumbled up into dust form, and bonded, which finds the asbestos fibres bonded together to form sheets, tiles or other moulded products. While all three types of asbestos can be found in either of these two forms anywhere throughout the home, we can provide asbestos testing for all.
Whether you live in metropolitan Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula or anywhere in between, if you live in a home or own a commercial property built between 1950 and 1990 and suspect that asbestos testing hasn’t occurred on the premises, get in touch with Aussie Asbestos Solutions today.
