Onsite Test Results

Don’t let your construction project get held up by waiting for long and costly time delays. We use the latest testing equipment to provide you with instant test results. If your asbestos testing results are positive, Asbestos Watch Brisbane can provide you with a no-obligation asbestos removal plan for the entire building should it be required.

Certificate of Analysis

Through our asbestos survey, testing, detection, and assessment, you will receive a full report and a Certificate of Analysis on the day of the testing.

The Most Advanced Equipment

We use the new testing tool microPHAZIR AS analyser which the latest point and shoot detector. In about ten seconds, you’ll know if the building contains one of six types of asbestos fibres. We do not need to extract a large sample as typically performed by traditional testing methods. We use Laser technology to identify the architecture of the fibre. A very small scrape “if needed” is performed and then lasered with a result immediately identified. The sample area is then sealed. A typical size is less than one-fifth of a 5 cent piece size.

This hand-held tool allows our operators to come to your site and detect asbestos in any location with immediate results. There is no need to extract a physical sample on our testing procedure. This accurate and simplified asbestos testing saves you time. It avoids the cost of lab testing. However, we also offer NATA Accredited laboratory services if requested.

Customised Asbestos Inspection Services for All Building Types

At Asbestos Watch Brisbane, we perform all asbestos audits, inspections and pre-purchase asbestos inspections on all three property sectors, including residential homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants. Our thorough inspections include floors, walls, ceilings, roofs, and the surrounding soil if necessary across all facilities. You’ll receive an accurate inspection report at a competitive cost.

Homes

Residential Homes

In residential homes built or renovated before 1985, asbestos very likely exists in the interior and exterior materials. You will also find asbestos in the garage, corrugated cement fences, and outbuildings. Cement roofing sheets infused with asbestos were a common building material for small buildings such as sheds. Asbestos lurks inside vermiculite popcorn ceilings, vinyl floor tiles, and various adhesives and fireproofing.

Commercial

Commercial Buildings

Commercial construction was one of the most significant asbestos users, typically as a spray-on fire-retardant, wall panels, ceiling panels, roofing, and insulation. Before the ban, almost every hotel and apartment had it. The owners of commercial buildings have a legal obligation to perform an asbestos inspection and remove it if necessary. We can help you determine if the building contains asbestos and record the type, condition, and location. This is referred to as an Asbestos management Plan or Asbestos Register. Call our professionals to inspect and assess your needs.

Industrial

Industrial Properties

Old factories make trendy new restaurants, shopping malls, and residences. Unfortunately, they typically used asbestos in significant quantities. Before working on these structures and sites, you must do an inspection for asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). When found, trained asbestos professionals must remove and dispose of it under strict guidelines. Again, we strongly recommend that all clients comply to WHS legislation and have their buildings complaint with an Asbestos Register.

Asbestos Watch Brisbane offers complete asbestos inspection services and can handle everything from audits to removal. After such removal is performed, you’ll need a written Clearance Certificate from one of our independent Hygienists.

WHS defines a competent person as “licensed asbestos assessor or competent person engaged to carry out a clearance inspection and to issue the clearance certificate”. We offer such a service.

Why You Need Asbestos Watch Brisbane To Perform Asbestos Testing

We are asked on a daily basis ‘why people need to test for asbestos?’. Most property owners don’t realise how commonly asbestos has been used in the past. Even though the use of Asbestos Materials has been banned since 2003, it may still be present in many areas in your home or work place.

You can check for the presence of asbestos materials in your Asbestos Register or Asbestos Management Plan. Otherwise, the only safe and sure way to ascertain whether there is asbestos present, is by having a professional test the material.

There Are Several Reasons Why You Should Trust Asbestos Watch – Asbestos Testing Team To Ensure Your Safety

A suspected material that may contain asbestos is damaged

Damage and deterioration will increase the friability of asbestos materials. Aging, continual vibration, water damage, and physical impact such as grinding, cutting, sawing, or drilling can break the materials down and make asbestos fibre release more likely. When a structure containing asbestos begins to crumble and break down, it can release harmful air-borne asbestos fibres.

Inhaled asbestos fibres may become trapped in the mucous membranes of the throat or pass deep into the lungs. Once they are trapped in our body, the fibres can cause health problems. This process is irreversible; that’s why you need to take extra precautions when you suspect damaged asbestos material in your house or workplace.

Natural incidents, such as storm and bushfires, happen

Our team of specialists will let you know if the presence of asbestos is in your property, and if so, if it is in a safe condition or not. We will also give further advise on how to handle the asbestos material safely if required, or will advise on the level of removal required.

When you are working on a renovation or demolition project

Any remodelling job involving cutting through cement sheeting walls or ceilings containing asbestos will require a removal license. Asbestos material is in no way something you want to take lightly if there are signs of damage or rotting to older buildings. It’s best to get it checked out by a professional, and if there is damaged asbestos, get it removed immediately by those qualified to do so, such as our A-class licensed removalists.

Asbestos Testing FAQs

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, previously mined for its insulation and heat-resistant properties. We still find it in roofing, walls, and insulation. The microscopic fibres lodge permanently in the lungs when inhaled, causing long-term illness or death.

What is Asbestos Testing?

Asbestos testing is the process of identifying if asbestos fibres are present in a product or on a surface.

At Asbestos Watch, we use the latest device that uses near-infrared light to detect the presence of asbestos. You get results in ten seconds. If necessary, or upon your request, we can have samples analysed in a NATA laboratory, but it can take a few days.

What Buildings Have Asbestos?

If you’re working on a building constructed or renovated before 1985, chances are it has asbestos somewhere.

Asbestos was an essential material for both interior and exterior due to its fire-retardant and heat-resistant properties. Because it is a mineral, it won’t burn. Asbestos was an ingredient in cement panels for homes, commercial buildings, fences, and outbuildings.

How to Check or Test it?

It’s always the safest to let a professional take care of testing. You can’t detect the presence of asbestos by merely looking at it. It takes safe handling procedures and the right asbestos detection tool.

However, you can mail-in small samples for testing. We offer a mail-in service, and you can download the form here.

Where is Asbestos in My Building?

Asbestos can be anywhere, including bathroom and laundry walls and ceilings, floor underlay, external and internal hardiflex sheeting and corrugated roof sheets known as super six. It can exist in any residential, commercial, or industrial property.

In older homes, asbestos can be under old carpets as part of the underlay. Vinyl tiles either in squares or sheet form, and the glue that bonds them to any surface. It can be part of any wall, eave, electrical meter box backing boards and stormwater pipe shrouds. Many homes have exterior hardiplank cladding made with asbestos as well as the corrugated roof material.

How Long Until I Get My Test Results?

Most asbestos testing companies in Australia must send off samples to a lab. The results take two to three days.

When you call Asbestos Watch Brisbane, we can send a technician to you any day of the week, with our mobile asbestos testing. We use the latest testing tool, the microPHAZIR AS analyser, a point-and-shoot instrument that accurately identifies any of the six types of asbestos. You’ll know within 10 seconds whether there is asbestos present.

How Much Does it Cost?

Asbestos Watch Brisbane offers three economical testing options.

  1. Mobile Testing – From $299
  2. Property Asbestos Inspection – From $399
  3. Mail-in Asbestos Samples Testing – From $57

You’ll receive a discount for more than one sample.
