Asbestos Removal

Health risks associated with asbestos need no further emphasis, where evidence shows direct connections between prolonged exposure and asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. While it’s been banned almost two decades ago, it is still rather common in homes across Australia.

One in three houses still contains asbestos products today and they are most frequently found in those built before 1985.

Hives Demolition & Excavation has a long history in the demolition and civil industry, with a focus on asbestos removal more recently as well. It’s been only natural to offer such services and do it our way – timely, cost-efficient, and with no hiccups.

What We Do

Even if you like DIY projects and take on renovation or demolition, it’s important to note mishandling asbestos can lead to exposure with serious consequences. Asbestos removal should only be done by professionals. To get a better picture of the service we offer, here’s a quick and rather simplified overview of what Hives Demolition does.

Bunch of asbestos being removed

We identify asbestos materials that need removal.

With both pre-demolition and individual asbestos inspections, we conduct tests and identify materials that need to be removed. We boast years of experience in the demolition and civil industry, which allows us to show off both the confidence and professionalism you’re bound to see from the get-go.

We have an eye for details that point toward asbestos materials, such as tile discolouration or corrugated insulation edges. We know what products from what time to check and where to look for roof tile identification marks, for example. Ultimately, we work with accredited testing labs when we need our claims confirmed.

We handle and remove asbestos.

Once we’ve identified asbestos and confirmed materials need removal, our team of professionals will handle it with care. We plan and prepare the work area, then remove, transport, and dispose of said materials or recycle them if possible.

How We Do It

Asbestos fibres cannot be seen by the naked eye and materials can differ in colour, which can further complicate dealing with it. Improper handling and inhaling airborne fibres can cause serious health problems, so here’s what we do to be on the safe side.

We follow rules and regulations.

We follow strict guidelines when it comes to dealing with asbestos. These include all of the health and safety regulations, from personal equipment to inspection and ultimately disposal. We take pride in our planning capacities just as much as we do in our execution, which can be especially important here.

We deal with professionals only.

If we work with a lab or a hauling company for one reason or another, we always make sure they are professionals sharing our views on quality, straightforwardness, and punctuality. We aim to provide flawless service and we look for the same from our partners. This makes for an important aspect of our business and pays off with sensitive projects.

We capitalise on the experience and it shows.

We have vast experience and the projects we complete have our name written all over them, as we always look to live up to our reputation and add to it. We act quickly as we identify, remove, and dispose of asbestos – be it part of demolition or an individual project. We promise an effortless experience with top-notch customer service.

We are open about it.

From initial contacts and getting quotes to regular updates with bigger projects and your feedback, we also boast of being open about our business. We will help with advice when necessary and always provide all necessary information, so you know what is going on and when.
