DOMESTIC ASBESTOS INSPECTIONS
Pre-sale and pre-purchase asbestos inspections are becoming more common as people become aware that many houses built in Queensland prior to 1990 contain asbestos.
Inspections of this nature are non-destructive and can be done without damaging the home. Samples collected during such inspections are done discreetly so there is no visible damage to the walls or ceilings.
All of our consultants are licensed Asbestos Assessors.
There are two types of inspections that people commonly request:
The main point of this inspection is to identify asbestos materials present in the home. It involves one of our qualified consultants walking through the home and identifying any potential asbestos materials that can be seen. Samples can be taken to confirm the presence of asbestos or to determine if a product is friable.
We are also able to provide a budget estimate for the removal of identified materials which can be used as part of price negotiation.
A written report is a service provided in addition to a visual inspection. This report will list all of the identified asbestos materials, as well as provide risk assessments of its condition and provide recommended actions that can be taken to reduce risk if necessary.
Written reports are usually requested where there are known risks that need to be managed, or where the person requesting the inspection is not able to be present at the time of the inspection.
