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.
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.
What is the danger associated with asbestos?
To answer this question, we first need to clear up a common misconception about asbestos. Simply having asbestos in your home is a marginal health hazard. If left alone, the asbestos presents little danger. However, if it is disturbed, especially if it is cut or broken, it will release billions of small fibre particles into 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.
