Parts of your home that may contain asbestos?
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.
Why is asbestos so dangerous?
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.
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.
