Why was asbestos used?
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.
Why does asbestos pose such a health risk?
In the form it is used for construction, usually sheets or boards, asbestos is not generally harmful to a person’s health. If it is left alone, it should not cause a problem. However, if it is disturbed and especially if it is broken or cut in some way, it then becomes one of the most serious residential house hazards of our time.
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.
