Why was asbestos used?
The Government of Australia banned asbestos in 2003. Unfortunately, asbestos had already been used as a construction material from the 50’s onwards without the knowledge of the health risks it poses. It was a good, cheap and strong building material and was used in all types of construction projects. Homes, offices, schools and even hospitals. It is generally used in the walls, ceiling, flooring, eaves and roof linings. These are the places we would check for asbestos in your home.
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 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.

How Jim’s Asbestos Removals approaches a job
When we are working in your home, the safety of you and your family is our utmost consideration. When we enter your home, before we start the process of removing the asbestos, we will clearly signpost the areas that will pose a health hazard until work is complete. After we have removed the asbestos, and also decontaminated the area of any asbestos dust, we will let you know that this part of your home is now safe to be used again. In many cases, it is a tradesman carrying out work on a property who first find the asbestos, and these tradesmen will now be able to continue with their work.
