Where is Asbestos?

Asbestos has been used extensively in many homes in southern sydney and it’s no surprise that it’s expensive to remove. Experts suggest that around one-third of all Australian homes contain asbestos. When you know the type of Asbestos it can help to determine the risk.

If a property was built before 1990 is highly likely that asbestos was used in some form within the home. Our experienced and knowledgeable consultants specialise in locating asbestos throughout your property.

Types of Asbestos

There are two types of asbestos, and they are friable and non-friable. The one to be aware of is the more dangerous type, friable (loosely bound), this asbestos-containing material can be very dangerous as it can contain up to 100% asbestos. If this type is found in a location that is easily disturbed it should be removed immediately.
