Asbestos Testing

Have your home or business tested for asbestos to ensure your safety.

Know Your Asbestos Risk With a Simple Test

No one should live with the worry that harmful asbestos is in their home or business.


Many of our customers have struggled with finding someone to complete asbestos testing for potential loose fill asbestos insulation & other asbestos materials.  Here’s where Powers can help.

Using Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM) including Dispersion Staining (DS),  all in accordance with Australian Standard AS4964-2004 ‘Method for the qualitative identification of asbestos in bulk samples’, you can be assured of the result & have confidence moving forward.


If you’re selling or buying a new property & your solicitor, real estate or building inspector requests a certificate it’s important to have an asbestos test completed with an official laboratory certificate to prove what’s in your roof.


Getting an asbestos test is easy. We offer a sample pick-up asbestos testing service or you can bring the sample in.  To complete the test, we’ll need two 50c piece size samples in a small ziplock bag.


Next, your loose-fill insulation sample (or piece of board) is tested for traces of asbestos, with both a standard & priority service available for your peace of mind. You’ll get a lab certificate once the test is completed.
