WHEN SHOULD YOU TEST FOR ASBESTOS?
Asbestos-containing materials can turn DIY into a hazard. Private consumers should therefore test for asbestos fibres before carring out renovation work on the house. It is even more important for tradespeople to protect themselves with an asbestos test. If renovation work is undertaken on asbestos-containing building materials, there may be legal consequences.
