The Importance of Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a hazardous material that can cause numerous health issues, including cancer, when its fibres are inhaled. It is crucial to test your property for asbestos before undertaking any renovation or demolition work if it was built before 1990. Additionally, call our Gold Coast testing team if any part of the building (such as the basement, an old shed, or the attic) shows signs of deterioration.

Attempting DIY asbestos removal on the Gold Coast is not only illegal but also poses significant risks to you, your family, other occupants of your building, and neighbours if asbestos-containing materials are disturbed.

If you suspect asbestos on your property, don’t hesitate to contact our team to safely remove asbestos following professional testing and identification. Our Gold Coast asbestos removal technicians are fully trained and equipped to handle all necessary remediation.

Concerned Your Property May Contain Asbestos?

Common Materials That Require Asbestos Inspection & Sample Testing

If you are concerned that your property may contain asbestos and you require testing or something like an asbestos roof replacement, our inspections can provide the answers you need to get started. The following areas usually require inspection and testing:

Why Was Asbestos Used?

Due to it’s its fibre strength and heat resistance, asbestos was widely used as a fire retardant and for insulation in buildings constructed before 1990. Therefore if you live in a home that was built before this date, it may have asbestos in the materials used to build it. With home renovations surging in recent years, property owners are increasingly concerned about the potential health risks associated with asbestos exposure. Protect your health and ensure a safe environment by contacting our asbestos testing and asbestos removal experts today!

Asbestos in the Environment

Asbestos can also be found in the environment, as it is a naturally occurring mineral. It can be released into the air, water, and soil through natural processes such as weathering or human activities like mining, construction, and renovation.

Asbestos fibres can remain airborne for a long time, and their inhalation can lead to health problems.

Our Comprehensive Asbestos Sampling & Testing Service

Managing asbestos involves taking careful steps. Our licensed asbestos assessment specialists will visit your site, perform asbestos tests by collecting samples of the suspected material, and send them to a testing centre. This process determines whether the material contains asbestos and identifies the specific type of asbestos present.

We collect samples of suspicious materials and air, which go through quality testing in a lab in Australia, to ascertain the presence of asbestos on your property. The laboratory is fully accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), ensuring our asbestos testing complies with the highest Australian standards for technical competence. If the results are positive, we offer expert guidance on the next steps for asbestos encapsulation and removal, preventing further contamination through monitoring.

Regular Asbestos Maintenance

Asbestos Inspections & Management Plans

An asbestos management plan is an essential tool for Gold Coast property owners and managers, particularly those responsible for commercial or industrial buildings. A well-designed management plan outlines the steps needed to manage asbestos risks, including regular inspections, maintenance, and remediation. By implementing an asbestos management plan, you can ensure the safety of your occupants, reduce the risk of asbestos exposure, and comply with relevant regulations should you also need to remove asbestos.

Regular asbestos inspections are crucial for properties built before 1990. These inspections help identify any damage or deterioration of asbestos-containing materials that could pose a risk to occupants. Proper maintenance of these materials can prevent the release of asbestos fibres, ensuring a safe living or working environment. Regular inspections also ensure that any necessary remediation work is carried out promptly and effectively.

Yes, in some cases, asbestos can be safely encapsulated instead of opting for asbestos testing on the Gold Coast.

However, encapsulation may not always be the best option, depending on the condition of the material and the specific circumstances. Our experts can assess your situation and provide the most appropriate recommendation for managing asbestos risks in your property.

First, vacate the area and restrict access to prevent others from entering.

The cost of asbestos inspections on the Gold Coast can vary depending on the number of samples, the type of testing required, and whether you collect the asbestos sample yourself or have our team collect them for you.
