How do I know if I have asbestos on my property?

It’s very difficult to determine if a material contains asbestos just by looking at it, and the only way to be sure is by getting a sample tested by a National Association of Testing Authorities accredited laboratory. Approximately one third of all Australian homes contain asbestos products, so as a general rule if your house was built before the mid-1980s it is highly likely that there are asbestos-containing materials present. If your house is less than 30 years old, this risk is dramatically reduced.
