Asbestos is an incredibly dangerous material to handle and asbestos exposure has a direct link to developing mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and pleural disease. Approximately one third of Australian houses are thought to contain asbestos in some form.
As a nation, we’ve seen the rise of asbestos exploitation and then the extensive bans placed upon it. Before the dangers of asbestos were known, the mining, manufacturing, and construction industries all took advantage of the mineral’s properties.
Asbestos was seen as our miracle material during the post war construction boom, and its resistance properties meant it was used Australia wide to make more buildings fire resistant and strengthen other building materials and products, right up until the 1990s.
2003 found Australia finally implementing extensive bans on the use, reuse, importing of, selling, buying and mining of asbestos materials.
Where do we come in? Well, because of what we know about asbestos and the threat is poses for human exposure, the demand for asbestos removal increases. We’re here to help rid of the asbestos Brisbane still contains.
We've been working for over 15 years to help eradicate hazardous materials from homes, commercial buildings, and industrial sites. We specialise in asbestos testing, removal and disposal, hazardous waste management and contaminated land management.
