Asbestos removal is a job for professional and licenced removalists, and you need Breathe Easy Asbestos Removal and Demolition for professional asbestos removal in Queensland. They have the knowledge, the expertise, and the gear to protect them when they do the job. You see, asbestos removal is not a DIY task, especially if you’re ill-equipped to perform it. Once asbestos is disturbed, the highly toxic fibres can get into the air and get into your body through inhalation, ingestion, and the skin. And once that happens, you are already at risk of developing serious diseases like asbestosis, mesothelioma, and even lung cancer.

Houses built before 1990 are most likely to have materials containing asbestos. And some houses that were built in the 90s and early 2000s may have still used asbestos even though it was banned in building products in 1990. If your house has asbestos-containing materials and they haven’t shown any damage or wear and tear, you can just leave them alone. But, if you’re renovating or doing house maintenance, you have to call in the professionals to remove asbestos from your property.


You wouldn’t know if something has asbestos just by looking at it. A scientific testing is needed to confirm this. That’s why you need expert asbestos removalists to assess your property if it contains asbestos and if it needs to be removed. If you do not own your home, you should inform the owner or property manager as a first step.

That said, here are some of the usual places where asbestos sheeting and asbestos cement may be found:

  • Cement roofing, gutters, and downpipes
  • Roof and conduit insulations
  • Rlectrical meter boards
  • Wall and ceiling cladding
  • Vinyl flooring

Remember, an experienced asbestos removalist will know which parts of your property need to be checked to determine the presence of asbestos. And you can always call Breathe Easy Asbestos Removal And Demolition to do this task for you.


Just so you know, there are two types of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). One is friable and the other is non-friable.

Friable asbestos. This type is looser and can further crumble into fine dust when dry. Friable materials have high levels of asbestos, which can sometimes contain up to 100% asbestos. Friable asbestos is the kind that gets into the air easily and may be inhaled by people who are in the area.

Non-friable asbestos. This type can be found in a bonding compound, in small levels—less than 15% asbestos. They’re solid, rigid, and can’t be easily crumbled or reduced to fine dust. Because the asbestos fibres are tightly bound in the product, they’re not usually released into the air.

When non-friable asbestos-containing materials get damaged or badly weathered, they can become friable and may pose a health risk to those who will be exposed to them. For example, asbestos cement sheeting that’s been crushed or that’s deteriorated from continued exposure to a chemical.

Only professional and licenced asbestos removalists can determine these things. And Breathe Easy Asbestos Removal And Demolition will be glad to rid your home of any asbestos-containing material that may pose a health risk to you and your family.
