Asbestos Inspection and Testing 

 

Our asbestos inspection and testing services are available throughout all greater Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide suburbs. If your building was constructed prior to 1990 it is recommended to establish whether there is any asbestos present anywhere on your property.

Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, anyone owning or conducting business in a building has a legal responsibility to ensure that the health and safety of the occupants. Real estate agents are also obliged to disclose the presence of asbestos or any other hazardous materials to potential buyers.

National Building Inspections can carry out inspections and tests for the presence of asbestos in your home or commercial building. Our laboratory is accredited by NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia). 

You will need to arrange for our technicians to visit your premises and carry out a thorough inspection and obtain the relevant samples for testing.

The asbestos samples will be viewed under a polarised light microscope to identify the types of asbestos that may be present.

The types of asbestos to be found are usually:

  • Chyrsotile (white asbestos)
  • Amosite (brown asbestos)
  • Crocidolite (blue asbestos)

If your house was built:

before the mid-1980s – it is highly likely that it has asbestos containing products

between the mid-1980s and 1990 – it is possible that it has asbestos containing products

after 1990 – it is unlikely that it has asbestos containing products

Some houses built in the 1990s and early 2000s may have been constructed with asbestos materials until the total ban on any activity involving asbestos products became effective from December 2003. Some modern imported building materials have been found to contain asbestos.

We used NBI after a friend recommended them to us for our pre-sale inspection of the property and they have been fantastic. Their website was easy to use and all the information you need was laid out clearly. No hidden costs whatsoever. The inspector completed their inspection and the report came out the same day.

I had a new house stage inspections done through national building inspections and it was a great experience. They did detailed reports with photos and all the defects were masking taped so it was easy to identify and reinspect after rectification. Really professional and I would recommend them to anyone that wants a unbiased inspection report during construction.
