If your residence was built before the mid-1980s there’s a high chance that there are asbestos-containing products.
Houses built between the mid-1980s and 1990 are also likely to have asbestos-containing products.
On the other hand, houses built after 1990 rarely have asbestos-containing products, although it doesn’t hurt to check.
Interestingly, despite the Australia-wide ban of asbestos, some rogue companies are still importing questionable building materials which make their way into the supply chain ending up in residential and workplace situations.

A date and plan of action is set after testing
Professional removalists understand the important of organisation and their surroundings.
Before work commences, neighbours are formally informed of what’s going to happen in writing.
The preparation process is crucial for everyone’s wellbeing. For example, an area is isolated, from other rooms and/or buildings. A professional understands how to seal internal doors, and the importance of leaving external doors and windows open in order to promote ventilation. He or she will also be equipped with the right safety gear and modern work tools.
After the residence is prepared, our workers are focused on sensitively removing dangerous asbestos materials.
In some cases, however, it’s safer and more economical to leave and treat existing asbestos products through our asbestos encapsulation service.
From outdoors to indoors, a qualified worker has both the short and long-term health of their clients in mind. This is why he or she will cover all relevant floors with heavy-duty plastic sheeting. It is also why residents/visitors and even pets are not present during this process.
In Australia, an individual working solo is required to contact the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) in order to safely dispose of his or her asbestos-contaminated objects. Fortunately, with safety in mind, our registered removal company takes away this burden.
