What is ‘Air Testing’ and why is it important?

Why we use air testing

Safety is our absolute priority when dealing with asbestos management, so we use the best tools and techniques to help us to reach our goals. Air testing is a crucial aspect of asbestos management as well as being critical for indoor air quality assessments.

Air testing is typically required during various stages of asbestos management, often before and after asbestos removal; this helps us to ensure a top-quality service and a thorough removal. Regular air testing can also be used additionally for ongoing monitoring, in areas where asbestos-containing materials remain in place.

In order to effectively solve a potential asbestos management issue, we first need to identify what we’re dealing with. Air testing is a service where we test the air to detect any airborne asbestos fibers. Using Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), our skilled technicians are able to ensure accurate and reliable results.

Air testing is suitable for use in many situations, whether it’s for ongoing asbestos monitoring or clearance testing after asbestos removal. Air testing provides valuable insights and allows homeowners and property managers to always ensure the safety of their occupants.

Air sampling usually takes just a few hours to complete, and the results will follow shortly after, providing peace of mind and a clear course of action to deal with any potential issues that are indicated from the results.

Knowledge is power in a lot of cases, and this is certainly true for asbestos management, too. Employing services such as air testing is crucial for asbestos management and removal to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.
