Asbestos

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material, which has been mined in Australia and overseas from several types of mineral rock.

If left undisturbed asbestos generally does not pose a health risk, however, when disturbed during renovations and home maintenance, asbestos has the potential to cause severe health concerns if inhaled.

Removal of asbestos from domestic premises:

  • Generally, asbestos products left undisturbed do not present a significant health risk provided the material is in reasonable condition.
  • A homeowner may remove asbestos sheeting from their own property without a licence provided they follow the safety control measures described on the Safe Work SA webpage.
  • Once asbestos products have been safely removed, packaged and labelled, they must be transported to an EPA licenced landfill or waste transfer station.
  • Some renovation or demolition activities may require planning/building approval, please contact us on 8563 8444 before the commencement of any work.
