Why Choose GBAR for Sydney Asbestos Removal?
According to the most up to date information available, more than one-third of all houses constructed in Australia contain asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). For anyone contemplating renovation at an industrial, commercial or residential level, the risk of disturbing asbestos-containing materials is very high. For properties that were constructed between 1970 and 1990, there is a high chance that the building will contain asbestos materials in some capacity. It’s impossible to know whether a building has asbestos before construction as there is no national registry and the materials were so widespread that it can be almost impossible to track. Therefore, if you are about to undertake construction, it is important that you have your building thoroughly inspected beforehand
For anyone who has carried out construction work in Australia, you will know that one of the most prominent obstacles in the construction industry is asbestos. The fact is, asbestos materials were so widely used in Australia (and across the globe) in the second half of the 20th century that there is a good chance your building does contain asbestos. Some of the places where you are most likely to come across asbestos include:
- Carpet Underlay
- Waterproofing materials
- Ceiling materials
It’s important to have your property thoroughly tested by a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) approved organisation such as GBAR Group before you begin construction. Asbestos removal experts such as GBAR group can advise you on whether you need to remove any materials before beginning construction.
Understanding Asbestos Types in Sydney
Asbestos materials can be broadly classified into two very distinct categories. friable and non-friable asbestos materials. While all asbestos can be damaging, one of these asbestos materials is considerably more dangerous than the other.
Friable asbestos is used to describe any form of asbestos-containing material that can be reduced into a powder form by hand. That means that these materials can be crumbled into a powdery substance when pressure is applied to them. Friable asbestos materials are considered the most hazardous asbestos materials because they are far more likely to release hazardous particles into the air when they become disturbed. These particles are extremely dangerous and can cause a wide variety of health risks. the most common kinds of friable asbestos-containing materials include:
- Sheet vinyl
- Pipe insulation
- Roofing insulation
- Low-density boards
On the flip side, non-friable asbestos – sometimes referred to as bonded asbestos materials, are those that are thermally bonded together in The Matrix of the material. Non-friable asbestos materials are still very hazardous, however, they are less likely to release asbestos into the airborne environment when they are left undisturbed. As such, non-friable asbestos is generally considered to pose a lower health risk when left untouched. Examples of bonded asbestos-containing materials include:
- Cement Products
- Vinyl flooring
If you suspect that your property contains any asbestos-containing material whether it is friable or non-friable, it is imperative that you have this checked out by an asbestos professional who can handle the materials and advise on what steps need to be taken to remove it.

SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT ASBESTOS IN SYDNEY?
It’s important to know that the presence of asbestos-containing material is not dangerous in and of itself. Asbestos-containing materials pose a threat to your health when they are disturbed and subsequently inhaled. Therefore, before you begin any renovation or construction work on your Sydney property, it’s important that you have your property tested for asbestos before carrying out any works.
Asbestos materials were commonly used in the manufacturing process of residential and commercial building materials from the mid-1940s until the early 1990s. In fact, It wasn’t until the 1980s that asbestos cement materials were phased out in favour of asbestos-free materials. As a result, many of the houses and properties that were built before 1990 in Australia contain asbestos cement materials in the internal and external wall cladding, ceilings, and eaves — just to name a few of the most common places.
We’ve been working with our Sydney clients for more than a decade to deliver asbestos removal solutions that make your property safer for inhabitants and neighbours.
