The team at Southern Cross Asbestos Removal Ltd are dedicated professionals in asbestos detection, removal and disposal. Asbestos is a mineral which occurs naturally in rock. Between 1942–1984 asbestos was mined in huge quantities. Added to cement and water, it was pressed into over 3000 different products. Many feature in the homes and garages of New Zealand residences. When asbestos deteriorates fibres are released causing serious health issues. Southern Cross Asbestos Removal Ltd has a strong commitment to the New Zealand community and will always carry out asbestos removal in a safe and responsible manner.
