Asbestos Awareness: Detecting Asbestos in your property
Asbestos was widely used in residential, commercial and industrial buildings in Australia between the 1940s until the late 1980s. This hazardous material was used due to its strength, durability, fire resistantance and good insulation properties.
There are two main types of asbestos materials, which are friable and non-friable. Bonded material (non-friable) is commonly used in:
- fibro sheeting down pipes,
- corrugated roofing sheets,
- floor vinyl sheeting,
- and hot water system.
The non-friable product is often not dangerous as long as it remains in good shape, encapsulated or undisturbed. However, this product can become dangerous once it’s damaged or deteriorated enough to release fibres into the air. Airborne fibres are dangerous, and may trigger the progression of aggressive diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Indeed, raising your awareness towards the dangers of asbestos is a must, especially when you own or live in a building that was built before the 1990s.
Removing asbestos materials
Ideally, the asbestos material should be removed immediately by a removalist who holds a certification or license in handling asbestos removal. The government highly recommends you to hire a licensed removalist to remove asbestos products before the beginning of a renovation or demolition project. Moreover, only a qualified removalist can remove friable asbestos.

Our asbestos removal processes
Before conducting any removal work, an initial inspection may be required. Our Asbestos Removal Gladstone Team may perform a visual inspection. In some circumstances, we may need to take a sample from the suspect material and test it via a NATA accredited laboratory.
Once asbestos is confirmed, our Asbestos Removal Gladstone Team will assess and determine the next control measure, which is often asbestos removal.
Our asbestos removal team will firstly restrict access to the removal area. We will remove asbestos materials using specialised tools and equipment. The removed material will be sealed in 200-micron plastic. All disposable equipment and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that were used during the asbestos removal process will also be put in the 200-micron plastic bag to ensure all fibres are captured. Our assessor will carry out a clearance inspection to verify that your property is safe to be reoccupied.
Disposal Process of Asbestos Waste
Asbestos waste, used equipment, and PPE must be disposed of appropriately. We will locate the nearest EPA-approved facility that can accept asbestos waste. The disposal process will be carried out in accordance with the Queensland legislation.
