If you know you have asbestos in your home, then you also know you will need asbestos waste removal. The problem is that you may not know how much asbestos is in the home or how much waste it will produce. One of the ways you can detect the asbestos amount is to use a portable detecting device.

Building standards have changed and evolved over time as different materials and procedures have been found to be not as safe as new material. There is no greater example of this than the discovery that asbestos, a commonly used building material for hundreds of years, had extremely negative effects on the health of those who lived amongst it. Fortunately, as this information became widely available, Australia banned it from being used in this way and from the early to mid-1990s it was phased out.
