Asbestos Removal & Demolition

In Australia, asbestos cement materials were first manufactured in the 1920’s and were commonly used in the manufacture of residential building materials from the mid 1940s until the late 1980s. During the 1980s asbestos cement materials were phased out in favour of asbestos-free products. From 31st December 2003, the total ban on manufacture, use, reuse, import, transport, storage or sale of all forms of asbestos came into affect.

Bonded asbestos materials include: Asbestos removal sign
 
  • Asbestos roof sheeting
  • Asbestos internal and external wall cladding
  • Asbestos ceilings
  • Asbestos eaves 
  • Asbestos fencing
  • Asbestos vinyl floor covering
  • Asbestos moulded products – gutters, downpipes, ridge capping, gas meter covers, cable troughs and covers

Creative Choice Services is licensed and Worksafe approved to remove all bonded (non-friable) asbestos containing materials.  We remove asbestos in accordance with Worksafe Regulations, the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984, the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 and The Code of Practice for the Safe Removal of Asbestos - 2nd edition [NOHSC: 2002(2005)].

All asbestos work is completed using a Worksafe approved safety management system. This ensures the correct equipment is used, safe working methods are applied and that all relevant persons are consulted to minimise stress and concern.  This results in a safe and thorough asbestos removal.  A certificate of completion is also provided for your records.

Asbestos Testing

How do I know if a material contains asbestos?

It is not possible to find out whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it. You can look at factors such as the age and style of the property, existing alterations/renovations and the material’s characteristics, but there is only one way to conclusively determine whether a material contains asbestos. That is to have the material tested at a specialist laboratory.

Creative Choice Services offers asbestos sample testing via an independent testing laboratory. We are happy to remove samples for you or you can provide the samples in a sealable sandwich type bag.  Samples will then be tested and written results given within 8 working days. If asbestos is detected, the test will indicate what type of asbestos i.e. Crysotile (White), Amosite (brown) Crocidolite (blue) is present and in what concentrations.

For asbestos analysis testing please see the attached asbestos test document attached. Alternatively, contact us to arrange.

Asbestos Consultancy

Creative Choice Services provides an asbestos consultancy service. If you are considering purchasing a property that contains asbestos, we will inspect and provide independent advice regarding the treatment and removal of asbestos specific to that property.  This can be advantageous when negotiating the purchase price.
