Asbestos Disposal Perth

There are strict regulations surrounding asbestos disposal in Australia. At Rapid Asbestos, we are trained and certified in asbestos disposal. Not only is the asbestos disposed of, but all asbestos-containing materials that have come in contact with asbestos will also be disposed of. Tools used on the job will be decontaminated, stored in asbestos compliant bags, and stored securely until their next use.

Frequently asked questions

Asbestos removal is the process of safely detaching asbestos-containing materials from a structure. This can be a dangerous task that must be carried out by licensed professionals. If asbestos materials are incorrectly removed, asbestos fibres can become airborne, posing severe health risks.

Asbestos removal is dangerous as it is possible to release asbestos fibres in the process. Before we remove asbestos, we lay a plastic tarp in the removal area to collect asbestos fibres that may fall during the process.

Once we have completed the removal process, we will thoroughly clean the area and correctly dispose of any removal materials that have come in contact with the asbestos.

Then we will conduct a clearance asbestos air monitoring test to ensure the health risk has been removed.

Asbestos can be found throughout many buildings in Western Australia, as for decades, it was unknown that asbestos was a harmful material. Common materials containing asbestos include:

Many stopped using asbestos in residential buildings in the late 1980s due to widespread knowledge concerning the dangers of the material. However, some commercial buildings were built with asbestos until the hazardous material was banned on the 31st of December 2003.

If you believe asbestos is present in your home or commercial building, the first step is to have an asbestos inspection and test. It’s important not to touch the asbestos, as it only becomes a risk when disturbed and the fibres or dust is released.

Asbestos was once a ground-breaking discovery for the building industry. Asbestos cement sheets, in particular, have great properties suitable for building: they are durable, insulating and fire-resistant. It wasn’t until after the material had been widely used in construction that its harmful effects on human health were discovered, and the substance was banned.

If you believe an asbestos-containing material has released asbestos fibres, it is crucial to contact a licensed asbestos removalist. A professional asbestos removalist will use specialist air cleaning devices with dust extraction attachments designed to reduce dust. Then they will test the air to ensure there isn't asbestos still lingering.
