How it works
Book a commercial or residential asbestos inspection in 4 steps
Find a asbestos inspector for your Australian home
It’s estimated that 1 in 3 homes in Australia contain asbestos, so if you’re planning on renovating your home, always get an asbestos test done first. Asbestos is a hazardous material that can have serious repercussions if inhaled, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Not sure if your home contains asbestos? Below are the timeframes when asbestos was commonly used in Australian homes:
Pre-1985: Very likely
1990-Present day: Less likely but still a possibility
If you’re unsure about whether or not your home contains asbestos, the best thing to do is to hire an asbestos inspector from Sidepost. Our licensed asbestos assessor will survey the building and take samples of any materials they suspect containing asbestos. Samples will then be dispatched to a laboratory for testing, and you’ll receive a full report detailing the results within 48 hours.
Who is an Asbestos inspection for?
- Property investors

Let’s go through the primary reasons why you should book an asbestos inspection with Sidepost:
Comprehensive asbestos survey – Our asbestos inspectors will survey the property from top to bottom, taking samples of any materials they suspect may contain asbestos.
Independent NATA-accredited laboratory – We only use independent, NATA-accredited laboratories to test our samples. This ensures the results are accurate and reliable.
Fast turnaround – We understand that our clients generally need the results of the asbestos inspection ASAP, so we’ll have your asbestos register delivered within 48 hours.

Affordability – For something as important as an asbestos inspection, you don’t want to cut corners and try to save a few bucks. But that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive either. Our prices are extremely competitive, and we offer discounts for multiple properties.

What happens if asbestos is found in my home?
If asbestos is found in your home, it’s important to show restraint and not try to remove it yourself.
As long as the asbestos is in good condition and not damaged or disturbed, it poses very little risk. However, if you’re planning any home renovations, it’s essential to hire an asbestos removal company to come in and remove the asbestos before getting started.
Once our inspectors have found any hazardous materials containing friable asbestos, we’ll outline the best asbestos management strategies tailored to you. Generally speaking, Sidepost recommends hiring a licensed asbestos removalist shortly after to get rid of the asbestos from your home.
If you have any questions about our asbestos testing services, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
