Probability of Asbestos in your Home

If your home was built before 1985, there is a highly likely chance that you have asbestos. Luckily the rate of probability drops if your home or building was built during the period of 1985 - 1990. After that it, drops even further if it was built after 1990.  

The only way to be sure if your home or business has asbestos is to give us a call and we can assess your property, and work out a plan on how we can safely remove it for you.

About Asbestos 

Asbestos is the name given to a group of fibrous silicate minerals that can potentially cause lung disease if inhaled.  It is a mineral fibre that exists naturally in the ground in various parts of New Zealand and the world.

Asbestos is the name applied to a group of six different fibrous minerals (Amosite, Chrysotile, Crocidolite, and the fibrous varieties of Tremolite, Actinolite, and Anthophyllite) that occur naturally in the environment. 

Asbestos is a dangerous material that needs to be handled with well-trained and safe hands, so don’t risk it!

Where Asbestos can be found

ACM stands for asbestos-containing material and buildings constructed prior to 1990, are likely to contain asbestos materials.  The diagram shows areas where materials containing asbestos were commonly used during construction.

These materials are not dangerous if they are in good condition and remain undisturbed.
