Notifiable asbestos removal jobs often require enclosures to be built around the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) prior to removal. To confirm the enclosure is sealed effectively, an important control measure called smoke testing is carried out.
Upon building an asbestos enclosure, Trinitas Group will carry out an efficient smoke test alongside other control measures that follow best practice to ensure the utmost safety.
When our team of fully trained professionals are confident the enclosure is sealed successfully, they then invite the client’s representative to witness the test. This allows them to rest assured that no contaminated air will leak out of the assigned enclosure.
Records of the smoke test are recorded on a Site Log and enclosures are checked on a daily basis. Should any repairs be required, a further smoke test may be carried out. Essentially, the smoke test confirms that the enclosure is effective when there is no apparent leakage.
