Guidelines and sampling

Guidelines

Sampling plan

  • Samples should be representative of household surfaces needing remediation.  Please ensure that you collect enough samples to characterise the entire building.
  • As stated in the Australian Government guidelines (page 16), at least five samples should be taken in a building, areas that show evidence of contamination or used in the manufacturing process should be sampled and any room inhabited by a child under 16 should be sampled.
  • As stated in the Australian Government guidelines (page 25) post remediation sampling should include areas which are expected to have frequent contact and areas near locations initial samples were taken.
