Jim’s Asbestos removal Kingsford is a local firm, experienced in the safe removal and decontamination of homes where asbestos has been used as a construction material. If you, or a tradesman who was carrying out work on your property suspect that there is asbestos present, we can clean up this health hazard for you. Asbestos dust and the asbestos fibres in this dust are one of the most dangerous legacy construction materials still found in older buildings today. This is a real, tangible health risk that is still the cause of deaths in modern times.
Where is asbestos usually found?
In 2003, the Government of Australia officially banned asbestos as a construction material for new builds, renovations and repairs. However, from the 50’s through to the 80’s asbestos was a popular, strong and inexpensive construction material that was used frequently in places such as ceilings, roof linings, walls, the eaves of the roof, and even flooring.
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 does asbestos pose such a health risk?
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.
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.
