    I've cleared a pile of broken crysotile wall tiles (white asbestos) in a remote derelict farmhouse using all the protective gear, double bagged and disposed of at an approved site. I'm planning to use an H-type vaccum with HEPA filter.

    Anybody know an easy way to check the air quality in the room?

    Try your local council Health & Safety, I have known them to attend and take ppm measurements with detectors and I believe the readings should have an allowed maximum od 4 ppm. (parts per million)

    Contact a local asbestos testing laboratory. Google be your friend
