We would like a chance to introduce our company, GreenerWay Asbestos Removal Bronte, which is your local, professional asbestos removal firm. We are able to remove and decontaminate your home if you have found asbestos used in part of its construction. Asbestos dust is an extremely harmful material, one of the most serious health hazards that can be found in older properties. 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.
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.

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 inhaled, will lodge in the lungs. They will not degrade or dissolve over time; they will be inside the lung permanently. This can lead to many serious medical conditions, including mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer that is terminal in a large percentage of cases.
