Commercial asbestos removal Perth

Rapid Asbestos Removals Perth are a local company specialising in asbestos removal on commercial sites.

Asbestos in commercial buildings is very common throughout Perth. Asbestos was heavily used in the building industry up until the 1990s and will likely be present in some form within the structure or surrounds of many buildings. If you are unsure if asbestos is present at your commercial property, it’s essential to hire a professional to carry out an asbestos inspection before commencing work. If you require 100% conclusive results, we offer Asbestos sample testing and reports.

All contractors need a safe and clean work site to get the job efficiently. As the asbestos removal and asbestos disposal portion of any works is often conducted first, we liaise directly with other trades in order for the job to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Without a licence, it is illegal in Western Australia to remove more than 10 square metres of bonded (non-friable) asbestos. Without extensive experience and specialised equipment, removing asbestos-containing material can be dangerous. To avoid legal and health risks, always hire a licenced asbestos removal company. At Rapid Asbestos, we hold a Class B licence and are fully licenced to remove non-friable asbestos on commercial sites.

Asbestos in commercial buildings

Asbestos materials can become a health risk if the asbestos fibres become airborne. Asbestos containing materials in commercial buildings can include anything from asbestos cement roofs, asbestos cement sheeting or other asbestos cement products and can be found anywhere from ceilings, ceiling cavities, doors, eaves and verandah, fencing, flooring, lifts and lift wells, roofing, walls and more.

If a commercial building was built before 1990’s, as a general rule of thumb, we recommend you speak to an asbestos removal specialist about testing the property for asbestos.

As the variables relating to commercial asbestos work can be extensive, we request an onsite meeting for all commercial works to discuss the extent and time frames related to any work.

Fencing contractors

As asbestos commercial properties are common in Perth, you will likely find an asbestos fence. Asbestos is commonly found in old fencing, due to its durability. If you are a fencing contractor, you’ve likely experienced the difficulty of removing the old asbestos-containing fence. Have you ever put a shovel into the ground and found the asbestos fence has just been snapped off below ground level? Do you find small pieces of asbestos in the dirt as you’re working?

At Rapid Asbestos Removals, we’re extremely thorough and efficient and will have the site safe and clean ready to install the new fence. We’ll even go the extra mile to make your fencing project easier. Installing a brick wall and leaving the trench open to save your time and effort digging it out? Consider it done. Do you need a temporary fence erected after the asbestos fence has been removed? We can save you time and effort erecting the fence as we go along.

Builders and renovation companies

During demolition or renovation projects, it is likely that asbestos-containing material will be present. If asbestos is found during the building/demolition process, it could pose health and safety risks to the workers on-site and the nearby public. In addition, it will also cause financial loss due to the downtime and disruption to other trades.

Be prepared before starting work and organise a pre-start asbestos inspection. We will do an assessment and test for asbestos containing materials. This will allow you to confidently begin any work knowing that the risk of on-site asbestos contamination has been eliminated.

If asbestos is identified once the project has begun, we can come out immediately and quote the job. We offer guaranteed start and finish times, allowing you to accurately adjust the schedule and get back to work sooner.

Real estate agents

Asbestos can sometimes make or break buying or selling a property. Concerns may be for safety reasons; some may be for the cost of its removal. Often the costs involved for removal of asbestos material from anywhere inside or outside your property can be both daunting and confusing to prospective buyers.

Take the worry away from your clients. At Rapid Asbestos Removals, we are fully licensed and insured to complete asbestos-related projects. We are flexible, affordable and maintain a record of high-quality workmanship.
