Materials that contain asbestos can be deadly to your health. Many buildings are constructed using asbestos-containing materials which can become dangerous when disturbed. The primary reason this occurs is during maintenance, renovations or demolition, which is why it’s critically important for developers to contact an environment consultancy company to complete as asbestos inspection before any demolition begins.
Edge Group arranges asbestos inspections and audits for organisations in the private sector, as well as people in the public sector. Our testing methods following Australian testing legislation, as does our commitment to organising the safe and responsible removal of asbestos from buildings and properties across Melbourne.
During the inspection, tests will be conducted to check for the presence of asbestos. This is far more involved than simply walking through a building and looking at things on the surface – asbestos inspections usually require viewing fibres under a polarised light microscope. If those tests come back positive for asbestos, the audit will suggest the correct way to have the contaminated areas/materials safely removed and destroyed. There are many asbestos removal companies that service Melbourne and the surrounding suburbs, but we would be more than happy to help you organise this next crucial stage of your development. It may also be necessary to test the air quality to ensure that no hazardous materials have sullied the environment.
