Asbestos Removal Ryde

GreenerWay Asbestos removal Ryde is a local firm, experienced in the safe removal and decontamination of homes where asbestos has been used as a construction material. If you, or a tradesman who was carrying out work on your property suspect that there is asbestos present, we can clean up this health hazard for you. Asbestos dust and the asbestos fibres in this dust are one of the most dangerous legacy construction materials still found in older buildings today. This is a real, tangible health risk that is still the cause of deaths in modern times.

Where might asbestos be found in my home?

In the 1950’s asbestos became a popular construction material due to its strength, low cost, and excellent insulation properties. It wasn’t until the 1980’s that the health hazards that asbestos poses were uncovered. In 2003, the Government of Australia banned asbestos for use in residential and commercial properties. However, this means that many properties which are 30 or more years old, could still have asbestos used in their construction. Typically, asbestos will be used in the roof, up in the eaves and as roof lining, as ceiling board, as a general insulating material and also in some kinds of floor coverings. Due to the combination of low price and high strength, asbestos was a common material used in the construction of external buildings such as a tool shed or a garage. Many of these old buildings are still used today, with the owner unaware of the health risk they pose.

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 does asbestos pose such a health risk?

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.

These fibres, if breathed into the lungs will stay lodged in the lungs forever. In the worst case, this could cause a fatal case of mesothelioma (asbestos-related lung cancer). However, there are many less serious health issues caused by asbestos inhalation as well.
