It is vital that you have asbestos professionally removed from your home, to negate the risk of you or your family suffering asbestos-induced illness in the future.
Why was asbestos used?
The Government of Australia banned asbestos in 2003. Unfortunately, asbestos had already been used as a construction material from the 50’s onwards without the knowledge of the health risks it poses. It was a good, cheap and strong building material and was used in all types of construction projects. Homes, offices, schools and even hospitals. It is generally used in the walls, ceiling, flooring, eaves and roof linings. These are the places we would check for asbestos in your home.
Asbestos was also commonly used, due to its low price and great durability, to construct buildings such as garages. These buildings are still in use today, with the owners unaware that asbestos was used in their construction.
Why is asbestos so dangerous?
The type of asbestos sheeting most often used in construction is fairly harmless when it is left alone. It is when it is damaged, cut, or worked on in some way as to cause dust to float in the air. Asbestos is constructed of billions of small, short fibres. These fibres, once in the air, can be breathed in. They then stick in the lungs, where they become a real health hazard, potentially lethal in many cases.
The fibres once in the lungs do not rot or decay, as they are an inorganic substance. Instead, they stay in the lungs and can cause serious, even terminal illnesses down the line.
