Asbestos Removal Wollongong
Many houses built between 1940 and 1990 made use of materials containing highly hazardous asbestos. Should asbestos be incorrectly handled, it’s extremely tiny fibres can escape into the air and are easily breathed in with the strong possibility of getting trapped deep in your lungs. Asbestos exposure can lead to various types of cancer that develop decades later. From 31st December 2003, the banning of asbestos and all items containing asbestos throughout Australia came into effect. At the same time regulations were put in place that only an asbestos contractor with an EPA licence can remove and destroy friable asbestos products (where asbestos is easily reduced to powder when dry). It is also now a regulation under Safe Work NSW that only an EPA licenced asbestos contractor can remove non-friable asbestos if more than 10 square metres needs to dispose of.
We are EPA certified and provide safe asbestos removal in Wollongong and surrounding areas. We remove and destroy both friable and non-friable asbestos as per the rules and regulations of Safe Work NSW. Before we begin removing any asbestos items, we undertake a full site inspection to ensure we identify all asbestos-containing items and determine the asbestos types to ensure we follow the relevant safety procedures for removal and disposal of the asbestos.
