Residential Asbestos

Asbestos can be found anywhere in your home – your roof, ceilings, walls and floors. It was used extensively in residential construction up until 2000, as such there is still large volumes of asbestos found in many homes today. QAMS is proud to service the Queensland community in removing asbestos using safe and innovative methods.
