Asbestos Removal Process

 
We follow a strict process for asbestos removal. Here is what you can expect:
 
Step 1: Inspection & Testing
Call Twin Cities Asbestos Removal at 0455 121 660 for an asbestos inspection. We will take samples of suspicious materials and have testing done by an independent third-party hygienist. If this test has already been done and you have the results, go to step 3.
 
Step 2: Test Results – Determine if Asbestos is Friable or Non-Friable
Testing is done to see if the asbestos is friable or non-friable. Once the asbestos type is confirmed, we will work on a feasibility study to confirm asbestos removal strategies.
 
Step 3: Quote
Using our plan, we’ll give you an asbestos removal quote.
 
Step 4: Notify Workplace Health & Safety
If you decide to accept the proposed asbestos removal service plan, we will begin by submitting a form to Workplace Health & Safety to notify the government about the proposed removal and the schedule.
 
Step 5: Perform Asbestos Removal
Our team of professionals will carry out the asbestos removal as planned. We follow a strict set of industry requirements and safety standards. Hand tools are used for demolition to reduce the amount of dust created. Our team is equipped with specialist asbestos removal suits for protection.

On projects involving friable asbestos, complete decontamination units are put into place to maintain workplace health and safety.
 
Step 6: Dispose of Asbestos Materials
Once all the asbestos materials are removed from your location, we will transport them to Townsville City Council waste facilities for safe disposal.
 
Step 7: Clean and Certify the Site
The final phase of the process is to clear the project area thoroughly. Independent hygienists will be called in to visit and inspect the site. If the site has been adequately cleared, a clearance certificate will be issued.
 
 
 
 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

 
 
What is asbestos?
 
Asbestos is not one single material. It’s a term used to refer to a specific type of fibrous silicate mineral often found in older construction materials. These materials were often used in asbestos cement for bonding.

Asbestos is popular because of its fire resistance, durability and insulation properties. The health risks of asbestos exposure were discovered decades later. By that point, it was already present in many buildings worldwide.
