Why Do I Need Asbestos Testing Gladstone Sampling?
As asbestos was commonly used as building construction materials from the mid-1949s until the late 1980s, many properties built before the 1990s will most likely contain a high-level of asbestos. Asbestos-containing material (ACM) can most commmonly be found in external wall cladding, roofing sheets, ceiling and fences.
Here are the reasons why you need to conduct asbestos testing on your property:
Your property may contain friable and non-friable asbestos materials
Friable asbestos is loose in nature and considered extra dangerous since it can easily release airborne fibres into the air. Usually, you can find friable asbestos beneath floor tiles. Non-friable asbestos is mainly harmless as long as it remains encapsulated and undisturbed. You can find non-friable asbestos in ceiling tiles or corrugated roofs at your premises.
As a matter of fact, the presence of asbestos will not cause any harm as long as it remains untouched and encapsulated. However, if the material is damaged, it may release airborne fibres. Inhaling the fibres may harm your health as they may cause a progression of aggressive diseases in the future (lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis).
You are going to, or planning a renovation in your property
Renovation, demolition or removal jobs may disturb asbestos and generate fibres. The Australian Government recommends you to conduct asbestos testing prior to any renovation or demolition especially if your building was built before the 1990s.
Seeking professional help will be the best choice. Our Asbestos Testing Gladstone Team are always ready to help you to identify and eliminate asbestos from your property as soon as possible.

Our asbestos testing processes
Our Asbestos Testing Gladstone Team will come to your building and perform a thorough inspection. We will discuss with you and find solutions for any problem and develop a plan of attack on the task at hand. The plan will only be executed once you approve it. Our Asbestos Testing Gladstone Team will carry out air monitoring, when needed, prior to any full removal job.
Depending if your property is dometic or commerical, you can expect some of the following processes:
- Before collecting the sample, we will assess the area and place plastic sheeting down if nessecary.
- Wet the suspect material stopping asbestos fibres from being released into the air.
- Cut the material to obtain a representative sample.
- Put the sample immediately in a 200-micron plastic bag.
- Label the bag with a permanent marker. We will write the date when the samples were taken as well as the ID of the sample.
- After the sample is taken, our Asbestos Testing Gladstone Team will patch the tested area with a plastic sheet, tape or sticky sealant to prevent any contamination.
- Put all PPE and equipment that might be contaminated by asbestos in a 200-micron plastic bag. We will label the bag as ‘Asbestos Waste’.
- Take the sample to a NATA accredited laboratory to be analysed.
- Dispose of sample waste at the nearest EPA-approved disposal facility that can accept asbestos waste.
All works will be conducted in compliance with the Australian and Queensland regulations. You will receive a written report once the testing is completed, direct to your email inbox. Don’t hesitate! Get your 100% free quote today by contacting our Asbestos Testing Gladstone Team!
