Asbestos Removal

Here in sunny Brisbane, Australia, home of many charming Queenslanders, asbestos removal has become a crucial service, sought out to remove extensive use of asbestos materials used in the construction of residential and commercial buildings during the past century.

While we are now aware of the dangers of asbestos materials, that hasn't always been the case. Asbestos, a material derived from naturally occurring minerals, was once celebrated for its fire resistance, strength and insulation properties, hence being regularly used in residential and commercial buildings. Asbestos roofing is a widespread implementation of the material. While the benefits of asbestos still stand, when asbestos fibres are released into the air, they can cause several health problems, including asbestosis and lung cancer. What this means is when houses containing asbestos material are renovated or demolished, it is essential to work with professional asbestos removalists to ensure all asbestos waste is handled with care.

For this reason, Brisbane asbestos removal businesses have seen an uptick in demand. If you are looking for professional asbestos removal Brisbane-wide, Urban Demolition is an expert asbestos removal business servicing Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast in South East Queensland. Our team has extensive experience ensuring your project is completed with safety and precision as priorities.

How does Asbestos removal work?


Our fully qualified team of asbestos removalists will begin the asbestos removal process by inspecting your site and determining the amount of asbestos contaminated material that may be present in the building. In our case, we will offer a free inspection, providing you with an accurate quote based on the amount of asbestos materials discovered, the square metre size of the property and the type of asbestos.

It is worth noting here that there are two types of asbestos: friable and non-friable (bonded asbestos). Friable asbestos can crumble into microscopic fibres, making it the more hazardous of the two. Non friable asbestos, on the other hand (also known as bonded asbestos), remains more intact, making asbestos removal a little easier. Bonded asbestos is most commonly found in materials like asbestos roofing.

Asbestos Removal Process 

After the inspection is over and we have provided a quote you are happy with, it's time to move on to the asbestos removal process. Asbestos removal and disposal needs to be handled by qualified asbestos experts to ensure proper workplace health and comply with Australian government regulations and standards. Neglecting these practices can result in serious health problems, so it's important to work with a professional team of contractors fully licensed for the job.

Our team of asbestos removal contractors in Brisbane are fully licensed and will come equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) and appropriate power tools for the job to prevent asbestos exposure. Depending on the type of removal and asbestos disposal required, we may also set up decontamination units to ensure no fibres leave the contaminated area.

The next step is removing asbestos waste from your property. Again, asbestos disposal must be carried out correctly due to the nature of asbestos fibres. Asbestos material must be secured in bags and transported to designated disposal sites. Ensuring that the asbestos removed ends up at the proper disposal sites is essential, as improper disposal can risk public health and safety.
