Asbestos Removal Hornsby
Need Asbestos Removed From Your Home?
GreenerWay Asbestos removal Hornsby 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.
Parts of your home that may contain asbestos?
In 2003, the Government of Australia officially banned asbestos as a construction material for new builds, renovations and repairs. However, from the 50’s through to the 80’s asbestos was a popular, strong and inexpensive construction material that was used frequently in places such as ceilings, roof linings, walls, the eaves of the roof, and even flooring.
Additionally, asbestos was the go-to material for constructing inexpensive outbuildings such as garages. Many of these garages are still in use today, simply because asbestos is such strong material that does not degrade over time. You could have asbestos used in your garage, summerhouse or tool shed without knowing about it.
What is the danger associated with asbestos?
Asbestos in its sheet form, typical of the type of asbestos used in construction, is only a marginal health hazard in its own right. It isn’t until the asbestos board is cut or broken that the real problems begin. Asbestos can release tiny fibres, so light that they can float in the air.
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.
