Q: How to determine if there is asbestos present in the property?

A: Firstly, it is essential to determine the last time when the property was renovated or repaired. If it was before 2000, then an inspection is essential. If the property was repaired after 2005, there is nothing to worry about as the Australian Government banned the use of all types of asbestos in 2003. Book an inspection from a certified Asbestos inspector if you are in doubt. Asbestos should not be handled without protective gear.

A: Absolutely not! All types of asbestos require professional assistance when it comes to removal and disposal. Moreover, all asbestos removal experts are certified by the Australian Government.
