If you’ve found asbestos in a property, you need to engage a highly qualified and skilled asbestos removalist professional to effectively and safely dispose of it.
You are likely aware that asbestos is extremely hazardous and dangerous and should only be removed by a suitably qualified professional with the skills and equipment to do the job properly. You also need to ensure they follow all required health and safety procedures. In addition to the removal of the asbestos, the law requires the safe transport and disposal of these hazardous materials. Please be aware that the irresponsible disposal of asbestos will lead to hefty fines and prosecution. At Speedy Demolitions we ensure all dangerous and hazardous materials are placed in DES approved Council or commercially operated landfill facilities. We will also provide you with a copy of the Waste Tracking Certificate which we will supply upon completion of the job.

More on Asbestos Removal
Australia is one of the countries that used a large amount of asbestos materials. In fact, almost a third of all Australian homes contain products that have asbestos in them. This is because asbestos was highly valued for its insulation properties, flexibility and strength. It was affordable and was even named “the miracle fibre”.
These qualities made asbestos a popular choice in manufacturing. The material was used in thousands of applications throughout the world. Basically, your property is highly likely to have asbestos in it if it was built before the mid-1980s. Homes built from this period until 1990 may have been built with materials that contain asbestos. On the other hand, if your property was built after 1990, there is little chance that you will detect asbestos in your home.
There is only one effective way to know if a material you encounter contains traces of asbestos. You will need to have it tested and examined by experts at a NATA accredited laboratory. A suitably qualified and licenced professional is best to collect and send the samples for testing.
Some of these labs can also do an audit or a survey that can help you find the asbestos materials in your property. This will help you check on the condition of the asbestos containing materials.
Asbestos poses minimal threat to your family if you have no plans to renovate your home in the near future and if everything is in great condition. If this is the case, your best option is to leave the suspected material in place. However, if you are planning a renovation soon, or if your home requires immediate repair, you might be interested in making your home asbestos-free.
