Asbestos Air Monitoring Sydney
Asbestos air monitoring tests for respirable asbestos fibres in the air to assist in assessing exposure and the effectiveness of safety control measures. This is undertaken where asbestos containing products are being removed safely, potentially liberating the dangerous fibres from the air, or removal of asbestos in building materials to make the area safe. For the purposes of this monitoring, only respirable asbestos fibres (those fibres less than 3 μm wide, more than 5 μm long and with a length to width ratio of more than 3 to 1) are considered to be a risk or dangerous.
There is a presumption that all fibres observed under a phase contrast microscope which meets certain geometry are asbestos. Further asbestos testing air monitoring in Sydney, NSW 2000 may be required during site or home inspections to confirm the chemical composition using transmission electron microscopy test equipment.
To perform safe asbestos removal, this service tests the air to measure the level of airborne asbestos fibres in an area following work so that we can remove asbestos material and make the area safe. When testing Sydney properties, an area such as residential property or building is ‘cleared’ when the level of airborne asbestos fibres is measured as being below 0.01 fibres/mL.
Residential Asbestos Removal Sydney
Asbestos was a common building material in many Australian homes, offices and industrial buildings until the late 1980’s. Asbestos dust is a known carcinogen that can cause devastating effects when inhaled. This dust is released when asbestos fibres are disturbed or broken up. Most of residential buildings dating between the 1940’s and 1980’s were built with dangerous asbestos. This requires delicate asbestos removal Sydney before demolition, by a licenced operator, who will remove the asbestos and safely transport it to a secure facility.
We will safely remove, transport and dispose of your building’s asbestos to an approved facility. We follow all governing asbestos removal regulations, and will also attend to the required legal notifications relevant to your demolition.

Commercial Asbestos Removal Sydney
The reason that building with asbestos is now illegal and the reason why removal and disposal of asbestos is covered by such stringent rules and conditions is because of the health danger being so real. It took medical professionals many years to realize that asbestos was a ticking time bomb. Now that we know it can cause serious illness and even death, asbestos has entered the world of high risk.
So we have a situation where many commercial or non-residential buildings in Sydney contain asbestos and these buildings are busy and active places where people study, go to work or shop. As we know, asbestos locked away or retained safely within the building is not a danger. It’s only when asbestos is broken or damaged and its miniscule fibres can escape into the atmosphere that they become a potential risk to the health of humans.
Not only do you require an expert to locate asbestos in your building and to determine whether or not it is safe, if you choose to remove the asbestos then that is the third aspect of your task. Again only a professional asbestos removal company has the authority and the expertise to safely remove the product and then of course to transport it safely and correctly to an approved site.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before it was known that asbestos could harm your health, it was a popular building material because of its insulating, fire-resistant and reinforcing properties. Many old buildings contain asbestos.
Workers who have constant exposure to asbestos over many years are at risk of getting asbestos-related diseases. Their protective clothing and breathing masks help to minimise these risks and are required by health and safety regulations. This also ensures that their normal clothing is protected from asbestos contamination.
If asbestos is in good condition and it does not pose a health hazard, no laws or regulations require that it be removed. However, building owners are required to keep asbestos in good repair to prevent releases of visible or particulate asbestos emissions under state and federal regulations. If a demolition/renovation or repair activity could cause damage to asbestos-containing material, then it is required that the asbestos be removed prior to the activity. Demolition of a building requires that all asbestos be removed prior to demolition.
Asbestos exposure is unlikely to occur during the initial firefighting stages when firefighters are wearing respirators which prevents asbestos from being inhaled. However during a fire asbestos containing materials might disintegrate from the fire itself or from water when it makes contact with hot material. It might also be released into the air in the case of structural failure. The fibres are not combustible and can linger in the air during the overhaul stage of a fire when firefighters extinguish remaining hotspots and check to make sure fire isn’t burning in other places.
Asbestos was used in a number of building products. While there is no definitive way to tell whether a material does contain asbestos there are some clues after a fire. If certain parts of a structure are in much better relative condition than other parts, it’s likely that asbestos could be present. If you encounter any areas like that make sure you let someone know.
