Where might asbestos be found in my home?
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.
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 is asbestos a health hazard?
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 asbestos fibres enter the lungs where they become embedded and because the fibres are so durable, they can be trapped in the lungs for many decades where they eventually cause debilitating diseases which more often than not, lead to a terrible death.
