Frequently Asked Questions
Their are a number of precautions and variables at play when it comes to delivering a project on-time. The time required to carry out out full abatement process and deliver the standard of work we’re proud of greatly depends on the following: the size of the affected area, type of asbestos material, ease of access, configuration of the work area, and the time involved to deliver a complete hygienist clean. As a professional asbestos removal contractor, it is our responsibility to ensure that any building occupants are not exposed to asbestos fibres. However, we are in constant communication with you throughout the entire process, so you’re aware when you may safely return to utilise the space without harm. Should you have any questions or seek a more accurate project completion timeframe, please get in touch with our friendly Brisbane based team.

We pride ourselves on delivering professional asbestos services with integrity and honesty. This combined with a cohesive all-inclusive quoting process and transparent communication will allow you to make an educated decision which is right for you. When dealing with asbestos, we understand the serious nature of the material, and there's no excuse for cowboys putting your family, colleagues and friends in harm's way.
Naturally, after 20+ years in the industry, we've come to understand that no two asbestos specialists are the same, which is why we believe it's critically important to find one that's the right fit for you, one that will provide post-removal support - we're no cowboys, we're specialists. When picking the right asbestos contractor, consider the following:
What's their industry experience like?
Asbestology is a fully qualified & insured with an extensive showcase of testimonials and past projects - both residential and commercial. This is further exacerbated by our over 120+ 5-star reviews from clients; if you find a similar company with the same values, quality of service and reviews, we're all ears! Got a project big or small, we can handle it. For example, if you're property has multi-story asbestos contamination, you will want to take absolutely no risks with safety, you'll want a fully insured contractor with a proven track record of delivering 100% customer satisfaction without compromise. In the unlikely event, a hiccup is missed by our team of specialists on-site but also our supervisor; we'll happily dispatch our team to the property free of charge to resolve any issue.
How local to you are they?
If you're located in the inner-suburbs of Brisbane Queensland, then a nearby asbestos contractor is going to be with you faster. It also means they'll be easier to get ahold of for any follow-up work required whether that be an asbestos management plan or just need post-removal support. Choose a team which understands your local council regulation and is able to deliver a fast turn-around on your project.
Can they clearly explain your unique asbestos situation?
After 20+ years in the industry, we understand your situation will be unique to others. That's why it's important to work with a contractor with broad experience so you can enjoy a stress-free removal process. We acknowledge that some jobs require an on-site diagnosis or inspection and we'd be more than happy to jump on a quick call to explain your unique situation in detail to you and put forth an honest recommendation to help you make the right education decision.
Water can be shut down at the mains, get an electrician to isolate the power and have a single power point put at the power box which is easy to do & not expensive.
Given the regulation and severity of asbestos exposure, we typically recommend to customers to avoid this practice where possible or at least seek professional advice on the best way to tackle your unique asbestos situation. However, note that some councils prohibit this practice and require a licensed asbestos specialist to carry out the removal and safe disposal of the material. You can only remove up to 10 square metres of bonded asbestos but no friable asbestos. This is why most asbestos companies recommend hiring a specialist with the appropriate equipment instead of navigating the complexities of asbestos. At the end of the day, it’s up to you as to whether you wish to risk the health of your loved ones. In saying this, should your local council allow the safe removal and disposal of asbestos we urge you to follow Safework Australia’s best practices handbook on safe asbestos removal.
Here are the top questions you should ask when doing your due diligence for asbestos removal:
- Have they given Workplace Health & Safety Queensland the legally required 5-day notice prior to commencement?
An urgent start can be legal if the reason is valid.
- Are they clearing the job themselves on completion or using an independent third-party firm to do this
It is a legal requirement to get the job cleared by a third-party business which has nothing to do with the job.
- Are they licensed & insured?
Always ask for copies of the insurance policy & call to check it hasn’t been cancelled. Will they cover damages below the $2.5k excess?
- Are they playing the dirty game of cheaper quotes with a high list of variation charges?
Check the quoted scope thoroughly. The final price may be a lot more than what is perceived.
- Do they have an online presence & do they have positive or negative reviews?
In this line of work, great reviews are hard to come by, we can provide contact numbers & addresses for all of our jobs across Brisbane.
- Are they criminals?
Over the years we have heard a lot of stories of property going missing to copper conduit pipes being taken & so on.
- Do they employ decent staff with an onsite supervisor?
Our staff are thoroughly trained & paid well, so a lot of care is taken with your job. A lot of businesses will pay minimum rates & get unreliable uncaring workers who will compromise quality & safety.
- Are they getting rid of the asbestos waste legally?
- Do they use asbestos vacuum cleaners?
It is well known that some businesses use normal vacuum cleaners that are not HEPA filtered & don’t pick up all the loose debris/fibres.
- How will they conduct the job, are their steps of progress & methods mentioned in the quote & do they deliver letters to all surrounding neighbours for exterior jobs?
- Hole Cuts/Penetrations
We advise you do not use anyone other than those who have proven that they have done cuts before. It is very easy to contaminate the entire roof & wall space cavities.
Do your research because it only takes one fibre to enter your lungs & destroy your health. Call Workplace Health & Safety to verify credentials, or you can usually find details online. It is important for the asbestos business you engage to complete the works to take full responsibility & liability for the project. If you experience smart or negative answers to these very basic & legal questions, you will then know you are dealing with an asbestos cowboy. It is important for the safety of yourself & others to use legitimate operators.
In Australia, there are three common types of asbestos which can be found. These include the following:
Chrysotile (White asbestos):
Chrysotile is part of the serpentine family of asbestos, when examined underneath a microscope it typically has as ’S’ type curve to it. As a result of the snake-like shape, it poses less of a risk to penetrating the inner linings of your lungs.
Crocidolite (Blue asbestos)
Crocidolite is widely believed to be the most threatening type of asbestos. This type of asbestos appears blue when viewed under a microscope and has a dart-like a appearance. This fibre breaks along its width, meaning the more damaged the fibre is, the finer it will be, which presents obvious health concerns as they’re easier to penetrate your lung wall.
Amosite (Brown asbestos)
Brown Asbestos or scientifically referred to as amosite fibres like Crocidolite fibres have a dart-like shape to them when visually inspected under a microscope. This fibre is part of the same family as the blue fibres but differs in its stability towards the end life of the product. When damaged is breaks along its width, they beak up into smaller pieces meaning they don’t get thinner but still require the same serious approach with the disposal & removal of the material.
Yes, we do strongly advise for us to do this because when removing items/fixtures the fixings can pull out Asbestos fibres.
