It’s important to take the appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of everyone on the premises. Asbestos was once widely used and has been used in a variety of different types of building materials. The only way to ascertain whether or not a material contains asbestos is to take a sample and test it. It is necessary to identify asbestos prior to purchasing a house or if you are planning to disturb any asbestos containing materials in carrying out building work.
If you’re aware of how asbestos was typically used, when it was used until, and in what types of building materials it often appears then you may be able to make a semi-diagnosis. However, the only way to make a concrete identification is by enlisting the services of qualified asbestos professionals who can identify the presence and condition of asbestos containing materials on your premises.
