Why do you need an asbestos inspection?

Asbestos copyDo you own or are planning to buy a property built before the 1990’s?

Asbestos Inspections are needed before you start any renovation or maintenance work because it is estimated that 1/3 of all homes built in Australia contain asbestos.

The year your house was built can give a general indication of the likelihood of asbestos materials used.

When was your Home Built? Probability of Asbestos in the Home
Built before 1985 Highly Likely
Built during 1985 – 1990 Likely
Built after 1990 Unlikely

Before starting any renovation or maintenance work you need an Asbestos Inspection Test to help you or your builder/renovator/tradesmen:

  • Be aware of it when doing any work or renovation
