Soil asbestos testing in Melbourne

Understanding Asbestos in the Soil:

Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral fiber renowned for its heat and electricity insulation, was extensively used in construction. Materials like roofing, walls, and flooring often contained asbestos due to a limited understanding of its health risks. Hence, asbestos testing is essential to ensuring health and safety.

Assessing asbestos contamination:

Buildings constructed before 1990 are more likely to host asbestos-containing materials. Inadequate construction practices, demolitions, and the use of asbestos-contaminated soil for landscaping contribute to the presence of these hazardous fibres.

Ensuring safer environments:

Despite the ban on asbestos and asbestos-containing products since 2003, the risk of exposure remains through airborne fibers. Safeguard your well-being with comprehensive soil contamination testing for asbestos. Connect with us at +61 (3) 91158105 to foster a safer environment.

We have found the tests to be thorough and informative and are implementing the recommendations for the trace mineral sprays. We will be using the recommendations elsehwere in our garden as well, for plants with similar ph requirements. We are hopeful - time will tell. Many thanks. Alec
