Asbestos Materials in Your Property
Long before people were aware of the health risks linked to asbestos, asbestos products had been widely used in Australian properties. Asbestos-containing materials were widely used in residential, commercial and industrial properties between the 1940s until the late 1980s.
Asbestos falls into two broad categories: friable and non-friable. Asbestos materials were widely used because they were durable, fire resistant and had good insulation properties. Friable materials pose a greater risk to health, while non-friable materials remain easier to encapsulate and contain.
Asbestos materials contain a high percentage of fibres and they release their fibres into the air when disturbed. Asbestos materials were commonly used as:
- Fire retardants
- Sound proofing
- Lining material on old domestic heaters
- Hot water systems
- The backing of sheet vinyl
- Linoleum floor coverings
- Pipe insulation
It is recommended that friable asbestos materials should be eliminated immediately by a professional removalist who holds a certification or a license to conduct friable asbestos removals. Although since 31 December 2003, Australia has totally banned the manufacture and use of asbestos products, most properties in Australia which were built before the 1990s, most likely will still contain asbestos. Performing asbestos removal or encapsulation should always be considered if you have an older house.
What are the health effects from asbestos exposure?
Inhaling asbestos fibres may trigger the progression of aggressive diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. However, current scientific and medical evidence supports the fact that simply living or working in a building containing asbestos products is not dangerous, as long as the asbestos product remans encapsulated and undamaged. Asbestos become dangerous for our health when its fibres become airborne and inhaled.
Asbestos has been linked to three asbestos related diseases:
- and lung cancer.
It takes time for these disease to develop. The first symptom usually emerges at least 10 years after an initial exposure. Sometimes, it takes about 50 years after the initial exposure.
Although undamaged asbestos may not be harmful or threatening to your health, it is subject to deterioration which will lead to airborne asbestos. It would be advantageous to remove asbestos materials from your properties.
Referring to the safety codes, only workers who have been through training and obtain a certification can perform asbestos-related jobs. Do not risk your health and your environment. Trust the works to our Asbestos Removal Townsville Team.
