Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring tiny fibrous materials that resemble thin, needle-like fibres. When inhaled, they can cause a number of health problems and have been linked to cancer in many Australians. Resistant to high temperatures, their suitability for insulation made them popular building products nationwide throughout the 1940s and the late ’80s.
Asbestos has been found in many locations with so many old buildings in South East Queensland. Materials that can harbour asbestos include:
From this list, you can see why it is imperative that anyone considering construction or renovation projects must have an asbestos inspection. Even drilling a hole or removing a screw from asbestos-containing material could produce airborne particles.
How do our licensed asbestos assessors approach asbestos checks? By taking samples of materials from the site, we can ascertain if there is a presence of asbestos. These samples are analysed within a NATA-approved laboratory. If the results come back as a positive result, for asbestos, you will be advised on the next steps you ought to take to prevent further contamination.
Requesting asbestos testing is vital if you’re beginning any project or destructive maintenance work with the potential to disturb asbestos, even for peace of mind. If you have questions about asbestos checks and the procedure of taking samples, contact our licensed asbestos removalists.

“We engaged total inspections to do a Pre building and pest inspection. I was very impressed by the website, the communication and the thorough and comprehensive report that Michael gave us.We especially appreciated the advice in regards to termites and pests and the amount of time he spent In the roof space in a 38-degree day”
“We have used Michael for building inspections twice recently. Both times we found the inspections to be very thorough and informative. The inspection reports were well presented and detailed. In one instance Michael's building inspection advice saved us from buying a property that would have cost us a lot of money to fix. He finds so many things you wouldn't otherwise notice.”
“Michael is very thorough and able to explain it to us clearly with the issue and some suggestion to tackle it in the future. Swift response and excellent customer service. Thanks Michael”
“Thanks go to Michael Cox for his thorough and comprehensive Building and Pest report on our Home purchase. Michael's inspection was very comprehensive and it was so reassuring to have the Building as well as the pest inspection done together at the same time. I contacted Total Building and Pest after others I call refused to get up on the roof. To Michael it was not a problem and pointed out that he had a drone to help inspect any dangerous or hard to reach positions. I have no hesitation in recommending Total to you for your complete investigation and peace of mind when purchasing you next Home.”
