Asbestos is serious business and not something to be taken lightly. If you even suspect that the constructs of your property contain asbestos it is pivotal that you organise to have it tested by a licensed professional, like Northern Rivers Asbestos Removal, as soon as possible. Check out our Asbestos Testing Page to find out more.
Considering the sheer volume of building materials that enter the country, it is nearly impossible to inspect each and every product for traces of asbestos, which is why it is your responsibility to get active about asbestos cleaning and call on the help of inspectors, removers, and assessors.
Removing Asbestos from Your Home
Because asbestos dust can be so easily inhaled, here at Northern Rivers Asbestos Removal we highly discourage removing asbestos yourself in favour of hiring professional asbestos removal companies.

One of out qualified technicians, that is experienced in identifying and removing asbestos, will inspect your property taking particular note of high risk areas and common sites where asbestos might be found.
Once we’ve located the suspected ACM (Asbestos Containing Materials) we will then safely collect a sample ensuring we minimise as much disruption as possible. This is to ensure that the asbestos removal process is in fact necessary before disrupting the constructs of your home.
Testing for Traces of Asbestos
After removing the asbestos sample from the site we will then send it off to a nationally certified laboratory which will confirm the presence of asbestos, what type of asbestos it is and the percentage of asbestos found in the sample.
Once we receive a confirmation we will then report back to the client with a detailed description of the findings and the best approach to removing the asbestos from the property. This will include advice on the best course of action regarding professional asbestos removal as well as the potential need for a medical assessment.
