Asbestos Wall Removal Adelaide
Need Asbestos Wall Removal Adelaide? Did you know that Asbestos Cement flat sheeting was used all over Adelaide and South Australia as wall cladding, both inside and outside.
You may find asbestos wall sheeting in your wet areas. Your bathroom, toilet and laundry walls are likely to be asbestos cement if your house was built before 1993.
Asbestos Cement sheeting was used on the outside of Garages, Sheds as well as many of Adelaide’s original coastal shacks and holiday homes. Most “fibro / timber” houses have asbestos cement walls, sometimes both outside and inside the house. Asbestos fake brick wall cladding was also used to dress up timber framed housing in the 70’s and 80’s. All of these asbestos wall cladding products need to be removed before renovations or additions can be carried out.
This is often where the home renovator comes unstuck, not realising their bathroom or laundry walls are asbestos! We unfortunately get many calls from distressed home renovators every month after they unwittingly start smashing out walls themselves before checking for the presence of asbestos, leading to clean-up and asbestos removal work to make the home safe again.
Far better to get experts in BEFORE causing possible exposure to yourself and your family through ill prepared home renovation work, it’s a lot cheaper to do it right the firsts time than to clean up damaged and widespread asbestos containing materials

Asbestos Wall Removal Questions and Answers
Question: My house is brick veneer and doesn’t look old enough to have asbestos in it… How do I check?
The safest way is to talk to the experts first! We can often assist over the phone at first, then come to test any products that may contain asbestos if needs be.
Question: My Building Inspector or Tradesman said it’s not asbestos, so I’m good right?
NO! The only way to be sure is to have testing done. Unfortunately there are a lot of “Old Wives Tales” about how to identify asbestos. Unless your tradesman or building inspector has previous experience identifying or removing asbestos they may be making ill-informed statements… better to know than guess!
Question: The walls on my garage are painted cement sheet that looks in good order, is it likely to be asbestos?
If it was built before 1993 its very likely! When in any doubt ALWAYS treat ANY cement sheet as asbestos cement without test results that say otherwise.
Question: Where are the most common rooms to find asbestos wall cladding in my house?
Asbestos wall cladding was used in many places, however in a brick veneer home your bathroom, laundry and toilet are most likely to have asbestos wall cladding if the house was built before 1993.
Question: What does asbestos wall cladding look like?
Generally, asbestos wall sheeting is 3 – 6mm thick and a mid grey colour. The sheets are very hard and not very flexible compared to gyprock or plaster. If you can carefully prod the sheet with a knife it will easily penetrate gyprock or plaster (which is generally white, chalky and soft) whereas asbestos will be VERY difficult to penetrate at all.
