Does My Insulation Contain Asbestos?
Insulation Removal: Loose filled asbestos insulation is made up of ground raw materials. Usually found in houses built in the 1960s and 1970s. Like all types of asbestos, the tiny fibres released into the air and inhaled can cause deadly illnesses, which takes years for any signs to appear.
Removing old insulation will prevent homeowners from health problems such as asthma and allergies. Removing old insulation will also benefit the homeowner with clean ceilings, reduced risk of fire hazards, a cleaner work environment, and maximum savings on heating costs by having appropriate and correctly fitted insulation.
At Hazardous Materials Group, we have been providing insulation removal services to residential, commercial, and industrial buildings across Queensland.

Our Asbestos Removal Process
Our team of asbestos specialists remove asbestos as safely as possible. We wet the material and gently spray the surface with water. We then continue this process as we remove the bonded asbestos.
It is not recommended that you remove the asbestos yourself. Asbestos removal must be carried out by a professional, otherwise you can risk exposing yourself to the material.
At Hazardous Materials Group, our team of asbestos professionals will wear protective clothing and specialised masks. This allows us to safely handle the materials. We also take the following steps to ensure the asbestos is cleared from the area, so you aren’t exposed.
1. Our contractors seal any joining areas with duct tape. This prevents asbestos becoming airborne.
2. We wipe all exposed areas with a wet rag.
3. Our contractors will clean all the furniture and carpet thoroughly.
4. We clean hard surface areas.
5. Once the area has been tested, we then move onto removing the asbestos completely from your property.
