Breathing with intoxicated air can become a great danger, and it has made them worry. One of many sources that can contaminate the air is the fibers from asbestos-containing material (ACM). These fibers are deadly when they are airborne and accidentally inhaled. Inside the body, the fibers will damage the internal organ gradually. Upon the exposure, there is not any sign appear until the health is beyond saving. Common asbestos related diseases that often found are asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.

Its physical strength can hold a high temperature and durable against degradation. Moreover, it’s very cheap that a lot of buildings across Australia were built with those ACMs. Sadly, the hazard can still be found nowadays. Approximately one out of three houses in the continent still contain the deadly fiber. However, people cannot determine which property is contaminated and which one is not.

The document can only valid for five years. After the expiration date, you need to test your property to get the latest data on contamination level within your structures.
  6. 6. How to Test for Asbestos Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of thin, tightly packed fibers. Due to its strength, asbestos used to be commonly used in the manufacturing of insulation, fireproofing, and other construction materials. Unfortunately, asbestos has been found to pose a serious health risk when its fibers become loose and airborne, since breathing them in can cause scarring of the tissue lining the lungs (mesothelioma) and even lung cancer. You can check for signs of asbestos on your own, but testing should be done by a certified professional using special equipment. If asbestos is present, hire a contractor to repair or remove the materials that contain it to ensure the safety of people using the building.
  7. 7. 1 •Determine when the building in question was constructed. Asbestos was widely used between 1920 and 1989, after which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began regulating materials containing asbestos. Asbestos can most commonly be found in buildings, but also in gas heaters, hair dryers, some clothing and automotive brakes.Walls, flooring, pipes, textured paints, insulation, fireproofing materials, pipes, electric wiring, and even chalkboards constructed between 1920 and 1989 may contain asbestos. If the building was constructed between 1920 and 1989, chances are something in the building was constructed with materials containing asbestos. •Few materials made today are constructed with asbestos. Items that do contain asbestos are now labeled as such.
  8. 8. 2 •See if there are signs of disturbed asbestos materials. You can't tell whether an item contains asbestos just by looking at it. Instead, look for warning signs that construction materials are degrading. Asbestos isn't dangerous when it's still in good condition, but when it starts to break down and the fibers are released in the air, it becomes toxic. Look for signs of older materials that have become worn out or damaged.Disintegrating pipes, insulation, walls, tiles, vinyl flooring, stovetop pads, and other older materials that have been present in the building since its construction are signs to look out for. •Look for cracks, dusty areas and spots where the material seems to be in the process of breaking down and falling apart.

  9. 9. 3 •Decide whether to get the area tested. If you don't see signs of construction materials degrading, you might not need to get the area tested, since asbestos is only dangerous when it becomes airborne. However, if you do see signs of degrading materials, or if you simply want to err on the side of safety, you should opt to get the area tested by a professional who has been certified to test for and handle asbestos safely.[2]Another scenario in which you might want to get the area tested is if you plan to do new construction work or replace old materials. Even if the materials are still in good shape, they'll get disturbed during the construction process and may release fibers into the air. •While you could purchase the equipment required to conduct asbestos testing, it is not recommended that you try this on your own. Asbestos testing should be conducted by someone who has gone through training and knows how to handle the material without causing a health hazard for the occupants of the building. If you haven't been trained, you could end up disturbing the asbestos and breathing it in or putting other people at risk of doing so.
