If you are asking what to do if you find asbestos, it is important to understand that undisturbed asbestos in good condition is not harmful. It only becomes harmful if the fibres within the product are disturbed. As such, if you suspect a building material contains asbestos, it should be left undisturbed until it is tested. Do not remove it, or disturb it. Call in an asbestos company to test the item. If the item tests positive, we can complete asbestos disposal services. This includes safely removing the item from your home or commercial building and then disposing of it in accordance with the law. Asbestos is not something that you should be attempting to remove yourself or work around, so always call in a professional if asbestos is suspected.
