Testing for asbestos

Asbestos is a very dangerous material, and exposure to it can potentially be deadly. HRC will find any trace of hazardous materials that could cause potential harm to unprotected persons, whether the location is an old family home or multiple-storey building. We are committing to leaving a risk-free environment in our wake.

Once samples are taken from your site, they are sent to the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for testing, which will return accurate and comprehensive results to HRC. The report will include all notable mentions and a conclusion made simple and understandable.

HRC will make sure that no part of the process goes unknown by anyone. We will make sure you feel safe and confident in your next steps.

How long does a test take?

Once samples have been taken and sent to the NATA lab, results typically take between one (1) and three (3) days to arrive, depending largely on how many samples were sent.

HRC will have you on speed dial to make sure there is no undue delay in the progress of your site project. You will have the information you need as soon as possible.

Inspecting your typical house will only take an hour or two. The larger the site, the longer it takes – HRC is committed to work that is efficient, but mostly precise and comprehensive. No one benefits from shortcuts, and HRC has no intention of leaving any inch of your site un-inspected.

Testing for asbestos before starting any removal project is crucial. It’s essential to confirm if the material in question contains asbestos to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

There are several reasons it is important to have asbestos sampled prior to removal. Firstly, it allows you to confirm the presence and type of asbestos. Secondly, it can potentially save you money. Many customers who have opted for asbestos testing have saved thousands of dollars because they did not have to treat non-hazardous materials as asbestos. The disposal and removal costs are significantly higher when dealing with confirmed asbestos materials.

In NSW, legislation states that any fibro cement sheeting must be treated as asbestos unless you are certain it does not contain asbestos. While there are some indicators that may suggest whether a material contains asbestos, the only way to be sure is to have it tested.

Ensuring a safe environment begins with the proper identification of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM). At Hazardous Removal Company, we offer a meticulous asbestos identification process. Here’s a summary of our approach:

On-Site Sampling by Licensed Technicians
Our licensed technicians visit the site to collect samples, laying the groundwork for accurate identification.

Laboratory Analysis with Cutting-Edge Technology
Samples are sent to third-party trusted laboratories, adhering to Australian Standards. Standard turnaround for results is 3-5 business days, with optional same-day analysis available. The analysis includes breaking apart samples, locating fibres under a stereomicroscope, and using polarized light microscopy (PLM) with dispersion staining (DS) to identify fibre composition.

NATA Accredited Report and Interpretation
The National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited laboratory provides a detailed report outlining the fibre types and material description. The report is designed to be straightforward, with our team available for any queries.

If no asbestos is found, clients can proceed with standard removal protocols. If asbestos is present, we offer a comprehensive quote for safe removal.

Our process ensures reliable results, helping clients make informed decisions about their spaces.
