Can you legally remove asbestos yourself?

It’s not recommended that you remove asbestos yourself, however, most states allow you to do it if it’s a small area of approximately 10 square metres and you follow strict safety and removal processes. It’s usually best if you can hire a professional to take care of your asbestos removal.

How long does asbestos removal and disposal take?

Small sections of asbestos may be removed in one day, but most jobs will take a few days and even up to a week. This is due to the fastidious preparation, removal, and disposal processes that are adhered to for safety reasons.

How much does asbestos removal cost?

What does asbestos removal include?

Here’s the kind of help you can expect from asbestos removal services.

Asbestos testing

An asbestos removal expert will take samples from various areas of your home to be sent for testing. Sample areas usually include internal walls and ceilings. The samples will be tested at a NATA (national association of testing authorities) accredited laboratory and you’ll receive a detailed report with the results once testing is complete. One thing they’ll test for is asbestos type. There are two types of asbestos, friable (non-bonded) and non-friable (bonded). Friable asbestos presents a higher level of danger, but non-friable asbestos is safe when it’s not damaged or broken. However, once it’s been compromised, dust particles are released into the air which can cause serious illnesses. Once you’ve got your test results back, you can then make decisions on the next step to take if they confirm asbestos is present.

Asbestos removal

Your asbestos removalists can help remove cladding, gutters, fascias, flooring materials, ceilings, roofs, insulation, fences, and walls. They’ll follow all safety regulations so there are no health risks to your family. They’ll isolate the area and install temporary sheeting to contain any dust. Using PVA and water during removal will stop fibres becoming loose or airborne. After the removal of asbestos, the panels of asbestos-containing materials will be wrapped in two layers of thick builder’s plastic. Then your asbestos removalist will use a special vacuum with a HEPA filter to clean the affected area and remove any leftover dust or particles to ensure no contaminated materials remain.

Asbestos disposal

After removing the impacted materials, your asbestos removal expert will then dispose of it at a registered waste facility. They’ll use their truck or ute to carry the covered materials and deliver them to a designated asbestos disposal drop off point at a local tip or dump.

Emergency removal or repairs

Asbestos is most dangerous when it’s damaged, so if your property is impacted by fire, floods, or storms you may need asbestos removal services before the clean-up process can begin. Your asbestos expert will check the air quality and identify any concerning material. After restricting access to the area, they’ll make a plan to contain and remove the dangerous items. They can also communicate any dangers and concerns about the site to you and the general public.
