How We Remove Asbestos

Handling asbestos incorrectly could have serious consequences and this is one project which is better left to the professionals. Our qualified tradespeople will expertly remove the material, safely and efficiently as per legislative requirements.

Unpainted asbestos material is sprayed with an adhesive glue to bind any loose fibres. Our licence allows us to remove bonded asbestos and our staff take care to avoid breaking any material. We follow strict procedures to ensure fibres don’t become airborne.

How Asbestos is Disposed

The materials we remove are carefully packaged into manageable sizes and wrapped in 200 um plastic before being transported and disposed of at an asbestos landfill site. Asbestos cannot be disposed of in a normal bin, and PPE clothing also needs to be thrown away in the right manner.

We will keep the worksite tidy and when it is time for you to return, we ensure you will be able to do so safely.

More Information – What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral fibre which was extremely popular until the mid 80s as a cheap, durable and flexible building material. It was previously mined in Australia, and approximately 1.8 million tonnes of asbestos were imported.

Due to the potentially deadly health side effects, asbestos containing building products were banned for use in the 1980’s in Australia. It is the fibres from asbestos which causes harm, and when undisturbed it generally doesn’t pose as a health risk. Once it becomes damaged the fibres are released, this may occur due to a variety of reasons including age, cutting, drilling or sanding. Breathing in the fibres can cause diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Where is Asbestos Found?

Despite the ban, asbestos is still common in older Perth homes and commercial buildings with approximately one third of residences containing some form of the material. The year your home was built should offer some clue as to whether this might be an issue, with builds before 1990 having a high likelihood of asbestos.

There is a long list of areas where it can be found, including roofs, walls, under tiling, brick cladding, fences, sheds, and insulation. It is not always obvious to spot, so before undertaking a demolition or any renovations an expert should be consulted.
