Need Asbestos Removed From Your Home?
GreenerWay Asbestos removal Sutherland 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.
What is asbestos used for?
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.
Many free standing garages were built from asbestos and even boundary fences were made from asbestos. While the fences were the first asbestos structures to be replaced, so durable is the dangerous material that many garages constructed from it are still standing today.
Why is asbestos so dangerous?
When left alone, asbestos doesn’t pose a high risk to health. Only when it is disturbed through breakage or sanding does it become dangerous to humans. Asbestos is made by compressing billions of tiny fibres, so small in fact are the fibres that when the asbestos sheet is broken or disturbed in any way, the fibres become airbourne and can be easily inhaled without knowing.
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.
