Government Introduces Loose Fill Insulation Testing Program

Gavin Clarke - Wednesday, April 20, 2016

The NSW Government has introduced a free scheme to allow you to get your loose fill insulation tested for asbestos.  This is an important program in the wake of the Mr Fluffy incident where over 1,000 homes were affected by asbestos risk.  You can read about the Mr Fluffy issue here.

Now anyone with loose fill insulation in a wide range of Local Government Areas can apply to have their homes tested.
