Why do I need a asbestos inspection?
If your property was built before 1990, it is essential to get it checked for asbestos BEFORE starting any renovations, or purchasing. Our comprehensive inspections will find where the asbestos is, what conditions it is in, and make sure you are fully aware of any danger posed to your, or your families health.
Asbestos has been a real problem for the health of Australia families for years, and unfortunately, there is still many houses in Adelaide that have asbestos-laden materials inside! The primary issue is, that unless approach with the appropriate precautions and by a trained professional, the asbestos fibres can become airborne and be ingested into the lungs of anyone in the vicinity.
Asbestos can be found in many differing building materials that were used to build property for years in Australia. This includes anything from the insulation, to the plasterboard and is difficult to detect to the untrained eye. If you begin renovation of removal work on the property while there is still a risk of asbestos, you risk exposing your family to serious health risks!
Our Adelaide building inspectors have been professional trained, by Australia’s leading asbestos authority, and know exactly how to detect, and safely take a sample for confirmation, without endangering you or your family. Once our inspection is complete, we will send samples of suspected asbestos to our NATA accredited laboratories for confirmation. If the sample comes back positive, then we will advise and can help management the process from there – so that at no point in time you are putting your family members at risk.
If we suspect any asbestos, we will take a sample and send it off to a NATA certified laboratory for confirmation. We won’t take the risk, neither should you.
