Asbestos Inspection & Testing Perth
At Rapid Asbestos Removals, we we offer free asbestos testing given we are contracted to complete the work. The cost of the sample(s) will be taken off your final invoice. Our testing involves a thorough search of your property for any signs of asbestos. Our team of experienced and specialised asbestos removalists can identify many forms of asbestos. In areas where the asbestos material is not clearly visible, such as in walls or roofs, we will access these areas via your roof manhole to inspect.
While inspecting a suspected asbestos material by eye can never be 100% conclusive, our years of experience help us identify whether a material is asbestos confidently.
After performing a thorough asbestos inspection, we will provide you with a provisional quote for the asbestos removal and disposal. In some cases, we may find more asbestos at your property during the initial removal. If this happens, we will contact you and provide photos to show we have found additional asbestos material and let you know the cost to remove.
As a small local business, we value honesty and we will never create work that does not need to be done. We will not tell you something is asbestos when it’s not, and if we do come across some material that is found not to be asbestos during the removal, we will leave it in place and take it off the final invoice.
Asbestos Testing Perth
If we are uncertain if a material does contain asbestos or if you would prefer a definitive answer before commencing the work, we will take a sample of the material to be tested. At Rapid Asbestos, we offer free asbestos testing in our residential asbestos removal and commercial asbestos removal projects given we are contracted to complete the work. The cost of the sample(s) will be taken off your final invoice.
When taking a sample, we employ the safest possible techniques followed by the sealing of any exposed areas of asbestos that are caused by the sample removal. The samples are then sent to be analysed at a NATA (National Australian Testing Authority) certified laboratory. Upon gaining the results, we will provide you with a full report and photo references of locations and results.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an asbestos inspection?
An asbestos inspection involves a certified and licensed asbestos removal company coming out to your property to check for asbestos.
Is an asbestos inspection enough?
Asbestos can be in many places throughout a property. It could be present in walls, roofs and flooring for example. While professional asbestos removalists can identify some forms of asbestos, some materials cannot be confirmed without lab testing. In situations when we are uncertain, we will always advocate asbestos testing.
When is asbestos testing required?
Asbestos testing is required when a material cannot be concluded as asbestos from visually inspecting it.
Do I need asbestos testing in Perth?
Most houses in Perth built before the 1990s will contain asbestos-containing material. If you suspect asbestos or plan to have any renovations done on your property, it’s always safest to have asbestos testing done.
