Coastal Asbestos provides reliable asbestos testing services in Brisbane and the Gold Coast to safeguard your home and health. We provide 100% accurate lab testing that gives you peace of mind. Every day we remove asbestos from family homes. Daily we are always finding places where asbestos is hiding. We can best advise you from where and how many samples are needed to get you the most accurate result. The benefits of using us to harvest test samples include:

  • We know where to look.
  • We can safely harvest samples without contaminating your family home.
  • We can safely seal the site of the sample to keep you safe.
  • We only use NATA accredited labs.
  • Same day results can be organised.
  • We are on the road every day and can get to you quickly.
  • We can save you time and prepare quotations for asbestos removal if samples come back positive.

Why is testing so important?

We often get asked, what is so important about getting samples tested in a laboratory as opposed to having them tested onsite with a handheld device?

Having asbestos samples tested in a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities Australia) is the only legally recognised form of asbestos testing in Australia. The benefits of laboratory testing are:

* 100% accuracy
* They can test for friable and non-friable asbestos
* They are tested independently

We Know Where to Find Asbestos

After our many years in the industry, we can distinguish between products that we know have no asbestos in them.

This will save you money by keeping the quantity of samples required, to a minimum.

Asbestos was used in Australia from the 1940’s right up until the total ban in 2005. Asbestos was also used in over 3000 products. It was called the “miracle mineral“ and was used in everything including:
  • cigarette filters
  • children’s crayons
  • makeup
  • building products
  • clothing
  • paint
  • water pipes
  • wiring
In the family home, in many instances, asbestos was used in walls, ceilings, flooring, roofing, fencing, garden planters, panelling, fuse boxes, exterior cladding, the putty in windows, tile glue.

We have found asbestos just about anywhere you can imagine within the family home and even workplaces.

Jason and Karen were very helpful with testing of materials and guidance! Thank you!

The top reasons you should get testing:

  1. Testing saves you money because if it is not asbestos you can save on demolition costs and even DIY this part of your project.
  2. Knowing whether or not you have asbestos helps you make informed decisions.
  3. You can ask our expert advice while we are onsite. We are the South East Queensland’s most trusted Asbestos removal company, so please don’t hesitate to ask.
  4. Asbestos Testing is actually the cheapest part of any renovation, and it leaves you with peace-of-mind.
  5. If you are doing a pre-purchase inspection of a home, you can decide if you want to buy it if there is asbestos found.
  6. Testing helps you with your budgeting. Finding out whether you are dealing with friable or non-friable asbestos makes a huge difference to your budget.
  7. Renovating is already a big task to undertake. By getting testing done means you will have one less surprise when renovating.
  8. Keep your project running on schedule. Have your testing completed and this will ensure you have less hassle when dealing with other trades which can put jobs behind schedule. If asbestos is found, we can remove it and ensure your property is clear and ready for your trades to streamline their processes.
  9. Asbestos is deadly you don’t want to second-guess.
  10. When nothing else matters more to you than your family’s safety, testing is the only way to know for 100% certainty that you have done everything you can to keep them safe when renovating.
  11. Using a reputable and fully licensed company like Coastal Asbestos Removal, ensures the sample is not tampered with or cross contaminated by other samples.
  12. All our representatives are fully trained in how to safely and securely harvest samples.
  13. We use chain of custody documentation to identify who was taken a sample – from where and when, to ensure the integrity of each sample.

Jason really helped us out a lot by providing an inspection and report on a property we were looking to buy. This was just what we needed because with his knowledge and experience he was able to find a lot of places where asbestos was present that was missed by the building and pest inspection. We are really happy with this service.

I called up to get the stipple in my ceiling tested for asbestos. After hearing about how some companies swap samples and to be wary of business that test for asbestos (so they can get a demo job), from the moment I spoke to Karen and Chris I knew I could trust them and feel at ease. When Jason came to the property he was pretty confident that there wasn't any asbestos but I wanted to test just for ease of mind. I needed the sample tested asap as I had trades booked to start renovating the property in two days time. Jason knew this and personally delivered the sample to the independent testing centre that night for testing first thing the next morning. By the end of the day I had a negative test produced and were able to safely start our renovations. Thank you to Jason, Karen and the team for your out of this world customer service and your professionalism throughout the whole process. Hoping that the other trades I deal with as we renovate our property are just like you.

The owner of coastal asbestos came out and quoted the job which I though was great. He went through the whole process in detail which put our minds at ease. His guys turned up early and were ready to go. They went through the works process and explained what they were going to do. All work place health and safety were used and area was barricaded of with all correct signs in place. When the guys were finished the area was clean as a whistleIf I was to have asbestos removed again I would call coastal asbestos and have them do it. If any of my friends and family needed to have asbestos removed I would recommend coastal asbestos without hesitation.

Can’t recommend highly enough! We were going to get a sample taken “just in case” before getting the bathroom renovated, but because the technician knew when and how our house was built he confirmed no need to test and no charge for coming out. Saving money and a reputable business found! Winning!

I started home renovations in my wife and my first home recently purchased without considering that some of the materials on my older house could have contained asbestos. I called Coastal who responded the very next day. Upon inspection the guy who came to take a sample was adamant that the gyprock material in both ceiling and wall would not contain asbestos and also refused to accept a call out fee.The company could have easily taken the sample anyway to warrant a call out and inspection fee but did not. Great company with good word of mouth reputation. In the future I’ll be sure to use them for any asbestos related concerns

From first phone call to phone call to let me know he was on his way to give me a quote l was impressed. The quote came in at a good price and was more then happy to proceed . The guys who came to remove asbestos from our 5 balcony were polite and hard working. The clean up site post removal was immaculate. They replaced all the furniture that was on the balconies without been asked. Could not recommend them more.

I had initially gone with another company who use a laser gun technology and provide on the spot test results. They told me I had asbestos in my whole apartment and quoted me over $10000 for removal. I almost paid this, however I wanted to double check with a Class A removalist. I contacted Coastal Asbestos, and asked them to retest my apartment. They retested it, it came back negative. After further research I discovered the gun is not accredited for use in Australia, there is only one accredited facility for testing asbestos and that’s in a lab. They saved me over 10 grand and couldn’t have been lovelier or kinder. They honestly restored my faith in the industry and trades in general.

I am not sure where to begin with. We got our property tested by one of the companies who used their handheld device to detect asbestos and he then sent us certificate that we have asbestos in our ceiling that we had just sanded and the dust has gone everywhere and we got told that just in case we should check for asbestos so we did .. we chosen someone that came up in google search as first and he provided us with positive asbestos result meaning that we were in a lot of trouble and possibly looking 50k to get it back to any normal state. However we then contacted Coastal Asbestos removal and he came to meet me and told me that we should get ornaments tested in Independent Laboratory first as not everyone in this industry aren’t doing the right thing, he gave me some honest insights of the matter and was actually there to help you. Our tests came back negative for Asbestos and he possibly saved us 50k. Whoever is dealing with asbestos matters please coincided them as honest and reliable business to deal with. I can’t even thank them enough after all this stress we endured and the sadness when the other business gave us a false reading on our first family home we have just bought. Thank you again for your help and assistance 👍🙋‍♂️🙋🏼‍♀️👌🏻🥂
