Where might asbestos be found in my home?
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.
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.
Why is asbestos dangerous?
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.
