1 in 3 houses in NZ contain Asbestos which makes it a widespread problem.
Christchurch is one of New Zealand’s oldest cities and in the 80’s and 90’s asbestos was a popular and inexpensive insulation material so there are thousands of commercial buildings and residential buildings in Christchurch with asbestos in the walls and ceilings.
If your house or building was built or renovated in the 80’s or 90’s, it is likely to contain Asbestos in some form. The only way to be sure whether a material contains asbestos is to have it tested by a qualified laboratory.
We only recommend testing suspect materials if they are damaged (fraying, crumbling) or if you are planning a renovation that would disturb the suspect material.
So if you have a commercial or residential building in Christchurch that either needs an inspection to determine if there is asbestos, or our asbestos removal service, get in touch.
