For construction companies in Australia the danger of asbestos is nearly ever present, as many houses and other buildings constructed up until the 90s may have had some form of the mineral used during construction. For that reason, it is incredibly important to contact a reputable asbestos removal company the moment you suspect your site might be contaminated with the material.
The problem with asbestos
Unfortunately, not many people know that in its bonded form, asbestos poses little to no risk to those around it. However, when these bonded materials become disturbed by, for example, construction or renovation work, asbestos fibre can be released into the immediate vicinity. These microscopic filaments are the materials that get breathed in by workers and other personnel and can cause a range of very dangerous lung problems, and even cancer.
Even worse, in the past, asbestos was also used in its friable form in heating and insulating materials, which poses an immediate danger to everyone in the immediate vicinity when disturbed.
The solution we provide
Contacting a professional asbestos removal company in Sydney, Brisbane or Wollongong like GBAR Group is one of the best ways to deal with the presence of asbestos. Not only can we perform accurate and legal inspections, we can also provide world-class decontamination services.
Also, when we have successfully completed our decontamination of your site, we are licenced to dispose of the asbestos in an environmentally safe way, to ensure no further contamination takes place, which also helps to safeguard the health and safety of our country’s citizens.

One of the major problems associated with asbestos is the lack of training and awareness across the country related to the material. That’s why we are able to provide your company with the necessary training to help raise awareness of the dangers of asbestos, as well as help construction and renovation personnel to spot asbestos.
