Pre-Renovation Asbestos Inspection Melbourne

If you are doing your own renovations, knowing where your asbestos materials are is a must. Two of the known effects of asbestos exposure are mesothelioma and an increased risk of other kinds of lung cancer - don’ take the risk.

There are also laws around the removal of any asbestos materials in Melbourne homes, even those that may be within your own home. It is important to be aware that if you unknowingly remove asbestos materials this is considered to be the same as unlicensed illegal asbestos removal work. Such an action if not controlled could also cause an asbestos contamination in your home.

Given the above, the best course of action is to identify asbestos materials prior to any renovation work, to protect yourself legally, to be socially responsible to your neighbours and to protect your own health and that of your family members.

If you require removal work, Greenlight can assist by referring you to one of our vetted and experienced contractors.

Home Safety Asbestos Inspection Melbourne

It is estimated that one in three homes contains asbestos - this figure rises dramatically if your home was built in the 50s to 70s.

Most asbestos materials are only dangerous if they are mechanically disturbed by actions such as drilling, cutting, grinding, sanding or water-blasting (this last one is an illegal act in Victoria).

Given the range of tasks you have to perform around your home, it makes good sense to know where your asbestos materials are. Once identified it is important to convey this information to any contractors working on the site and confirm with them that they will not disturb the asbestos materials as part of their works.

Knowing where asbestos materials are is the key to protecting your family from possible harm. We will also carry out a 12-point risk assessment and determine if any further actions are required. Reccomendations will be included in-line with any asbestos items noted.

Pre-Purchase Asbestos Inspection Melbourne

Asbestos is fairly common and if you are buying an older home in Melbourne, it is likely that we will find something - the most common location is the eaves and electrical boxes, however it can also be located in internal walls (particularly bathrooms and laundries), behind wall tiles in older bathrooms and within vinyl tile floor covers.

It is important to know what you’re up for before you make an offer so you can price this in - if you are planning to refurbish or demolish you are legally required to identify and remove the asbestos materials before you commence works (OHS Act, 2004 ).

Additionally, our Pre-purchase Asbestos Inspection might identify a big problem such as asbestos cement debris in your planned purchase sub-floor - this incidence can happen when a home is built on top of a demolished home or if asbestos debris was disposed of in the sub-floor during the homes construction. Such an occurrence devalues your home and you certainly want to know about it before you make an offer.
