Why was asbestos used?
In the period from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s, asbestos was a popular construction material. It was fairly low-cost, it was strong and durable, and had good insulating properties. Construction companies had no idea how dangerous asbestos was. In 2003, the Government of Australia banned the use of asbestos as a construction material. If you have an older property, you may find asbestos used as wall insulation, and also as floor tiles, in the eaves of your roof and its linings, as well as ceiling board.
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.
