Where is asbestos usually found?
Despite the fact that asbestos has been banned since 2003 in Australia, it was extensively used from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s because it was an inexpensive, durable and strong building material. So the use of asbestos in residential dwellings has been both extensive and widespread, used in both internal and external uses including walls, eaves, linings, insulation and even in floor tiles.
Asbestos was also commonly used, due to its low price and great durability, to construct buildings such as garages. These buildings are still in use today, with the owners unaware that asbestos was used in their construction.
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.
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.
