Zero ASBESTOS is dedicated to ridding Australia of one of our largest ongoing health threats, asbestos!


Our knowledge, expertise and extensive experience in safely removing and replacing all forms of asbestos have seen Zero ASBESTOS grow from a small shed on the Sunshine Coast to one of the leading asbestos removal companies in Australia.

Servicing Residential and Commercial asbestos disposal customers throughout Queensland, we have the reputation and capability to extend our operations throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Zero ASBESTOS can complete projects of any size for residential, commercial, industrial, insurance, government and local council clients. This includes both friable and non-friable asbestos – commonly known as bonded asbestos. This is known as A-Class and B-Class work. The company started life as Aspec Pty Ltd and we rebranded to Zero ASBESTOS a few years ago.
We are proud to be known as a trusted name in professional asbestos removal, due to our excellent safety record and safe work practices. All our trade-based staff members have both A and B-Class removal licences. We are also a member of Master Builders.

Richard Ayres

Person Image

From humble beginnings as an apprentice bricklayer, Richard first found his niche in the textured ceiling industry - specifically asbestos-based textures. After founding Texspec on the Sunshine Coast, Richard quickly became the go-to person for any textured ceiling work in South East Queensland, including removal and replacement.

Frequently coming across ACM (Asbestos Containing Material) in his work, asbestos testing and removal became a necessary skill and service; this lead Richard to launch Aspec - The Asbestos Specialists.

Aspec remains a trusted asbestos abatement company, providing asbestos testing, audits, management plans and more. Due to rapid growth, the asbestos arm of the business is now known as Zero ASBESTOS.

It wasn't long until Zero ASBESTOS outgrew its little shed in Warana! Today the business has a permanent office staff of 10-plus and a ground crew of 25 or more at any given time.
