Anthrax is a rare, but serious illness that is caused by a spore-forming bacteria. Anthrax can be found naturally in soil and the hair and hides of infected animals – it may also be present in plaster.

In the past, lime-based plaster has been strengthened with horse, goat, cow and oxen hairs, making it a prime anthrax containing material. Anthrax bacteria from spores can be very persistent and can remain in plaster and soil for many years. Anthrax is contracted and can spread when its spores are inhaled, ingested, or come into contact with open skin wounds. It’s important to consider the potential dangers of anthrax when planning and undertaking refurbishment or demolition works.

Vintec offers anthrax sampling for both commercial and domestic properties.
