Why Asbestos Removal is So Important
Are you aware that around 30% of homes 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. If your house or property was constructed between 1970 and 1990, your chance of asbestos containing materials being present is considerably higher. Unfortunately, it is impossible to know whether a building contains asbestos before beginning construction as there is not a national registry and ACMs 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 those that have carried out construction work in Australia, you will know that one of the most prominent obstacles in the construction industry is asbestos. Due to the widespread use of ACMs in the Australian construction industry so, it is imperative that you have your building materials and construction site tested before beginning any new construction projects. A few of the places where asbestos could be present in your property include:
- Carpet Underlay
- Insulation Materials
- Garages and Workshops
It is vital to have your property thoroughly tested by a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) recognised organisation 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.

Should I Be Worried About Asbestos on The Gold Coast?
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 Gold Coast 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 Gold Coast clients for more than a decade to deliver asbestos removal solutions that make your property safer for inhabitants and neighbours.
UNDERSTANDING THE GOLD COAST ASBESTOS RISK
Asbestos-containing materials can be broken up into two very distinct categories. Friable and non-friable asbestos materials. While all asbestos can be damaging, friable asbestos-containing materials are considerably more dangerous than non-friable. So, what’s the main difference?
Friable asbestos describes any form of asbestos-containing material (ACM) that can be broken down into a powder form by hand. That means that friable asbestos materials can be crumbled into a powdery substance when pressure is applied to them. Friable asbestos is considered to be the most hazardous asbestos materials because it is far more likely to release dangerous particles into the air when it becomes disturbed. These particles are extremely dangerous and can cause a wide variety of health risks. the most common kinds of friable asbestos-containing materials are:
- Pipe insulation
- Roofing insulation products
- Sheet vinyl
- Low-density boards
On the other hand, 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 extremely hazardous, however, they are far less likely to release asbestos into the airborne environment when they are left in an undisturbed state. As a result, non-friable asbestos is generally considered to pose a lower health risk when left untouched. Examples of bonded asbestos-containing materials include:
- Vinyl flooring
- Cement Products
If you think that your property contains any asbestos-containing material (ACM) whether it is friable or non-friable, it is vital that you have this checked out by an asbestos professional who can properly handle the materials and advise on what steps need to be taken to remove it.
