In today’s society we are sometimes left to put right the mistakes mage by earlier generations and this is particularly true when it comes to the use of asbestos, especially in domestic buildings. The use of asbestos in buildings was more or less outlawed over 30 years ago but prior to that was widely used for what was believed to be its inert properties – although nowadays, everyone is well aware of the significant health risks associated with asbestos.

Consequently, asbestos can only be handled by licenced and highly trained personnel, and at Asbestos Logic we are a professional asbestos removal company backed with a Class A Licence and the experience and expertise to inspect, identify and remove asbestos completely safely. Home owners or individuals that have any suspicion that a part of their building or property may contain asbestos should not hesitate to contact us in order that we can carry out the necessary inspections and where necessary remove this dangerous element.

Asbestos was largely used as fireproofing and insulating within the construction industry years ago and features in walls, ceilings and roofing but was also widely used in outdoor fencing due to it’s resistance to the usual effects of the climate. For a highly professional service removing asbestos from within your property or asbestos fence removal anywhere on the Sunshine Coast, call us at Asbestos Logic, we will be happy to give you a free quote for our essential assistance and an assurance of exemplary customer service at all times.

Frequently Asked Questions About Asbestos

  • What is asbestos?
    Asbestos is a silicate mineral made up of thin fibrous crystals that can be released by rubbing or abrasive action and other processes. Asbestos is usually referred to by its colour. The following three are the common types of asbestos found in Australia: • Chrysolite or White Asbestos • Amosite or Brown Asbestos • Crocidolite or Blue Asbestos Asbestos was heavily used in the building & construction industry due to its properties of fire retardness, sound absorption, tensile strength, cost effectiveness and its resistance to chemical, heat and electrical damage.
  • Where is asbestos used?
    Non-friable asbestos (or bonded asbestos) used to be commonly used in roofing sheets and roof capping, wall sheeting and interior & exterior cladding, soffits, eaves, guttering for water, gables, flues and water pipes. It was also used for garages, carports, sheds and fences. Asbestos was also used in car brake pads and plant machinery. Friable asbestos (or loosely bound materials) was used in asbestos felt materials manufactured for fire proofing, sound proofing, for lagging pipes and in insulation around stoves, heaters and hot water systems. Asbestos felt was also used as a backing material for some vinyl flooring and linoleum. This can be a serious health risk if the vinyl or lino is taken up, as the asbestos fibres can very easily become airborne.
  • Who can remove asbestos?
    Any materials containing asbestos must only be removed and handled by a professional and licensed removalist due to the serious health risks which can occur by asbestos airborne particles.
  • What aged buildings are likely to have asbestos?
    If a building was built before 1985 it is highly likely that it will contain some form of asbestos material. If the property was built between 1985 and 1990, it is quite likely to contain some of the mineral. If it was built after 1990 the building is unlikely to contain any asbestos material.
  • What are typical asbestos products?
    • ACM sheets utilised in construction • Thermal insulation and lagging • Roof sheets • Fence sheets • Pipes and downpipes • Low density board and ceiling tiles • Brake pads and housings • Acoustic ceilings
