Where might asbestos be found in my home?
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.
Additionally, asbestos was the go-to material for constructing inexpensive outbuildings such as garages. Many of these garages are still in use today, simply because asbestos is such strong material that does not degrade over time. You could have asbestos used in your garage, summerhouse or tool shed without knowing about it.
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.
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.
