Asbestos inspection & testing Perth
At Rapid Asbestos Removals, we offer free asbestos testing, given we are contracted to complete the work. The sample(s) cost will be taken off your final invoice.
Our testing process begins with a thorough search of your property for any signs of asbestos. All members of our experienced asbestos removal team can identify many forms of asbestos. To identify asbestos throughout your entire home, including your roof, however, they will require access via your roof manhole to inspect.
While inspecting a suspected asbestos material by eye can never be 100% conclusive, our years of experience help us identify whether a material contains asbestos fibres confidently. We also offer asbestos air monitoring services and if asbestos fibres are found we can conduct safe removal and disposal of the asbestos containing material.
Asbestos sample testing cost
If we are uncertain if a material contains asbestos or if you would prefer a definitive answer before commencing the work, we will take a sample of the building materials to be tested.
At Rapid Asbestos, we offer free asbestos testing in our residential asbestos removal and commercial asbestos removal projects, given we are contracted to complete the work. The cost of the dust samples will be taken off the cost of asbestos removal in your final invoice.
We employ the safest possible techniques when taking a sample, followed by sealing any exposed areas of asbestos that are caused by the sample removal. The samples are sent to a NATA (National Australian Testing Authority) certified laboratory for analysis. Upon gaining the results, we will provide you with a full report and photo references of locations and results.
