Do I need to test for asbestos before I do renovations?
Yes, asbestos is in many different building products and it is best to check before you remove linings, walls, vinyl flooring or any major component to your property. Failure to do this could lead to contamination of the property and people living there.
How much does it cost for asbestos testing and lab reports?
The average cost for an asbestos test varies from around $70.00 to $295.00 per sample, depending on the travel involved and the substrate being tested. This includes a lab analysis report for your records from an accredited IANZ lab.
Do I need to arrange anything for the asbestos removal at my home?
All we ask is that the areas getting removed be free of furniture and belongings, we can arrange the power disconnection/isolation and take care of the testing, waste disposal and clearance arrangements for you. We aim to be a one stop shop, start to finish and during this process we will need the property empty of tenants/owners and will give you progress updates, daily.
We can arrange with you keys and make sure the property is in a lockable state at the end of each day.
Can we get the asbestos removal started immediately?
If the works to be done is under 10m2 and is a B class product (NON FRIABLE), externally to be removed, then yes, if teams are available, we can start ASAP.
If the works to be done is A class (FRIABLE) and internally, then we need to notify WORKSAFE, 5 days before starting the removal. This is mandatory and non negotiable.
If available, teams may start the set up and get things ready with the enclosures, but until the notification is current, we are not permitted to start.
Can I get copies of the waste disposal certs for the asbestos waste disposed from my property?
Yes, if we get a skip on site for the asbestos works waste to be disposed in, then we can supply you a burial cert and a weight docket from the transport company and the approve landfill.
What happens to the asbestos waste from my property?
The asbestos waste from the property gets wrapped, double bagged and disposed in a lined asbestos skip. It is then transported to an approved asbestos disposal site for special burial.
This is all done under controlled conditions and only approved handlers are used for each step of the process.
