We would like a chance to introduce our company, Jim’s Asbestos Removal [Suberb], which is your local, professional asbestos removal firm. We are able to remove and decontaminate your home if you have found asbestos used in part of its construction. Asbestos dust is an extremely harmful material, one of the most serious health hazards that can be found in older properties. It is vital that you have asbestos professionally removed from your home, to negate the risk of you or your family suffering asbestos-induced illness in the future.
Parts of your home that may contain asbestos?
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.
Furthermore, many forms of outbuildings such as garages or a tool shed used asbestos as a primary construction material due to its low cost and great strength. These outbuildings can still be in use today, with the owners unaware of the health hazard right above their head.
Why does asbestos pose such a health risk?
In the form it is used for construction, usually sheets or boards, asbestos is not generally harmful to a person’s health. If it is left alone, it should not cause a problem. However, if it is disturbed and especially if it is broken or cut in some way, it then becomes one of the most serious residential house hazards of our time.
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.
