What is Asbestos?

Asbestos Testing Brisbane By Hazex

Our fully licensed asbestos testing experts can test your residential or commercial property in Brisbane for the contamination of asbestos and other hazardous materials. Asbestos fibers or microscopic “fibrils” are invisible to the naked eye, but can cause life threatening diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer. Other names for asbestosis are interstitial pneumonitis and pulmonary fibrosis.

When Should You Test for Asbestos?

Asbestos testing should be carried out prior to renovations or demolitions. Many properties in Brisbane built during the 40’s through to the late 80’s probably contain some asbestos. It is best practice for home owners and businesses alike to have an asbestos test done prior to and as part of a deconstruction or renovation plan. If our fully N.A.T.A. certified testing expert discovers asbestos in your property, Hazex can then safely remove or manage the hazardous material.

The Hazex Asbestos Analysis Process

Hazex residential and commercial hazardous materials testing will visit your property at a convenient time and collect samples from materials and also check for the presence of asbestos in the air. Sample collecting is done on site, then tested in the lab and a fully detailed report is supplied to the Brisbane property owner. We can deliver results in as little as 24 hours but can take up to 2 business days to get the full analysis.

Hazex will take as many samples for accuracy and thoroughness as required. We leave nothing up to chance and will deliver an accurate result each and every time.

As part of your asbestos test result, Hazex will also provide a quote for the removal and disposal of the asbestos. In certain scenarios a detailed asbestos management plan can also be required.
