Asbestos Removal Service
At Jim’s Asbestos Removal we believe in delivering our clients a quality service and that means providing them with important information.
AM I AT RISK?
If your residence was built before the mid-1980s there’s a high chance that there are asbestos-containing products.
Houses built between the mid-1980s and 1990 are also likely to have asbestos-containing products.
On the other hand, houses built after 1990 rarely have asbestos-containing products, although it doesn’t hurt to check.
Interestingly, despite the Australia-wide ban of asbestos, some rogue companies are still importing questionable building materials which make their way into the supply chain ending up in residential and workplace
“Australians have been unwittingly exposed to potentially large quantities of illegally imported building products containing asbestos, with no records of where the killer substance has been used and little chance of preventing its spread.” – The Australian

A date and plan of action is set after testing.
Professional asbestos removal companies, like Jim’s Asbestos Removals, understand the important of being organised and the potential impact of asbestos removal on the immediately surroundings.
Before work commences, neighbours are formally notified, in writing, of what’s going to happen with respect to appropriate notice periods and processes for the asbestos treatment at nearby properties. This gives them ample time to to ensure that for the duration of the asbestos removal or asbestos encapsulation work schedule, that their doors and windows are closed; and ventilation systems are put on appropriate settings, before any work commences at a nearby property.
The preparation process is crucial for everyone’s wellbeing. For example, an area is isolated, from other rooms and/or buildings. Our licensed asbestos removers understands how to seal internal doors, and the importance of leaving external doors and windows open in order to promote ventilation. They are also equipped with the right safety gear and work tools to ensure maximum safety for on all site..
After the residence is prepared and secured, our asbestos removal team focus on safely removing dangerous asbestos materials where possible.
In some cases, however, it’s safer and more economical to leave asbestos in place, undisturbed, and treat existing asbestos products through our asbestos encapsulation service.
Again, every job is unique.
Whether the asbestos is located outdoors (cladding), underfloor or indoors, a qualified asbestos removalists has both the short and long-term health of their clients in mind. They will cover all relevant floors with heavy-duty plastic sheeting, and why residents, visitors, and even pets, are not permitted to be present during this process.
