Why do you need asbestos removal services?

It has been widely known that in the past, asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were used extensively as building materials in the construction industry. Despite the ban of asbestos use in 2003, asbestos is still embedded in the houses we live in, the offices we work in, and the schools we are educated in.

There are many reasons why you need to remove asbestos, including:

  1. You own an old property

    Older houses, commonly built before the mid-1980s, contain asbestos as this material was used massively in between the mid 1940s until the end of 1980s. Asbestos was used extensively due to its durability, fire resistance, chemical resistance, strength, and good insulation properties.

  2. Natural disasters happen

    When a natural disaster hits residential and commercial premises, the properties that will be affected badly are older buildings. Numerous building materials, such as roofing sheets, can be damaged or broken during a natural disaster.

    As an example, the incident of asbestos exposure during a natural disaster was found at residential premises in Bundaberg that were hit by Cyclone Debbie. Many houses and businesses lost their roofs. Some with older houses had been told that the homeowners could not return home for their home now had asbestos contamination.

    Most residential buildings built before the 1980s used corrugated fibro sheets for the roofs. The type of asbestos material found is usually non-friable asbestos. Non-friable asbestos means the material contains asbestos fibres strengthened with a bonding compound. This type of asbestos will not release fibres into the air until aged and worn or broken.  

    Examples of non-friable asbestos include:

    • Asbestos cement (AC) products. The types of the products are usually corrugated and flat sheeting. They are commonly used in ceiling, roofs, wall, fence, or moulded items like downpipes
  3. Health hazards caused by asbestos exposure

    Numerous studies have linked asbestos exposure to more than a dozen different diseases. Aggressive diseases, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma, have a confirmed relationship with this material. Others, such as kidney cancer and COPD, are not directly caused by asbestos exposure, but scientists suspect that asbestos exposure can increase the likelihood of COPD and kidney cancer.

    Asbestos should be removed by a removalist who has a valid licence and is trained in the safe handling of asbestos. The Queensland government recommends you to contact a certified removalist to extract asbestos when you suspect its presence.

Our asbestos removal processes

  1. Pre-inspection

    Before performing asbestos removal, a pre-inspection is often required. Our team can perform a thorough pre-inspection to locate asbestos at your premises. In some cases, when required, we may have to perform sampling from a suspect material and test it through a NATA-certified lab.

  2. Asbestos removal

    Our team of experts will restrict access to the asbestos removal area. We will remove asbestos using specialised equipment and tools. The removed material will be placed in sealed 200-micron plastic. All used personal protective equipment (PPE) and disposable tools will also be put in the bag to avoid contamination. When needed, our licensed assessors will perform a clearance inspection to confirm that your premises is left in a safe and clean position.

  3. Disposal of asbestos waste

    Asbestos waste, all used disposable equipment, and tools will be disposed of properly. Our team will locate the nearest EPA-licensed facility that can lawfully accept asbestos waste. The process will be conducted in accordance with Australian and Queensland regulations.
