What is ASBESTOS AIR MONITORING?
Asbestos air monitoring and testing is the method used to detect the presence of any airborne asbestos fibres. It should only be carried out by a fully qualified asbestos analyst.
When it comes to asbestos air monitoring, you should never take any chances. Airborne asbestos cannot be seen by the naked eye, and long-term inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to serious health problems, such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
WHO NEEDS ASBESTOS AIR MONITORING?
If you suspect asbestos within your home, or to protect your workforce from possible contamination, it’s highly recommended that asbestos air monitoring and testing is carried out on the property.
Asbestos air monitoring also provides much-needed reassurance that the area is safe for occupation after non-licensable asbestos removal works or the discovery of disturbed asbestos.
Alternatively, if you are considering buying a property and are concerned that it may contain asbestos, we highly recommend an asbestos survey before you commit to buy any residential or commercial property.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING AIR MONITORING?
Our experienced analysts will visit the chosen location and use specialist equipment to monitor the air for any asbestos fibres. During the test, a specific volume of air is drawn through a filter over a set amount of time. Any airborne particles are collected into the filter which is then examined in a laboratory to establish the presence and levels of asbestos within the environment.
ALL ASBESTOS provides a four-stage clearance procedure, covering residential, commercial and industrial properties. This series of tests is carried out after the removal of licensed and non-licensed asbestos, and will usually be undertaken within a sealed enclosure. Its purpose is to ensure any potential asbestos exposure is identified and determine if the area is suitable for re-occupation or demolition.
