Where might asbestos be found in my home?
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.
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.
What is the danger associated with asbestos?
When left alone, asbestos doesn’t pose a high risk to health. Only when it is disturbed through breakage or sanding does it become dangerous to humans. Asbestos is made by compressing billions of tiny fibres, so small in fact are the fibres that when the asbestos sheet is broken or disturbed in any way, the fibres become airbourne and can be easily inhaled without knowing.
Asbestos dust is made up of many millions of small fibres, which can float in the air. These fibres, when breathed into the lungs, can cause a wide range of illnesses including asbestos-induced lung cancer (mesothelioma) which is fatal in most cases.
