Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in rock formations. Each mineral is made up of millions of flexible and small silicate fibres that are bonded together. Asbestos was commonly used in the building and construction industry because it is lightweight and exceptionally durable. It was used in a huge range of building materials including, but not limited to:
Asbestos is categorised as either Friable or Non-Friable asbestos, which means: Friable Asbestos: This means that the asbestos can be crumbled or broken down by hand or a little amount of pressure. This kind of asbestos is usually loose in nature and is very dangerous as it is easy for the asbestos fibres to become airborne.
Non-Friable Asbestos: Also known as bonded asbestos, means that the asbestos is mixed with other bonding or adhesive materials and are usually solid, rigid, and not easily disturbed. Though this kind of asbestos can become damaged over time, from natural occurrences, or from direct activities, like drilling, cutting and sanding.
Asbestos was used in building materials in Australia predominantly between the 1940s to the late 1980s, though it was still used up until it’s complete ban in Australia in 2003. Asbestos is extremely dangerous for the health and well-being of humans and can lead to irreversible health conditions.
Asbestos should always be professionally removed from your home as it is a highly dangerous substance that can cause incurable health conditions.
Some of the conditions asbestos exposure can cause include:
Each of these illnesses often have a long latency period, which means that you may not become unwell until a long time after the exposure.
In addition to being the cause of these diseases and illnesses, another reason that you should avoid removing asbestos yourself and instead work with a professional, is that it is very unlikely that you will be able to detect the presence of asbestos yourself.
Asbestos is not able to be detected by the naked eye, and unless you have experience in the building industry or environmental hygiene industry, it is unlikely you will have the knowledge of the signs or indications that asbestos may be present.
If you’re planning a home renovation, or you’ve recently bought a home that was built prior to 2003, if you want peace of mind about the presence of asbestos, you should work with an asbestos professional, like us here at Asbestos Australia, as we can inspect and test your property for the presence of asbestos.
As asbestos fibres are very small in size, it’s highly unlikely that you will be able to see them with the naked eye. If you have experience in the construction industry, you might know what some asbestos containing building materials may look like.
If your home was built between 1940 and the late 1980s, there is a high chance that your home may contain asbestos. If your home was built between 1990 and 2003, there is still a chance that asbestos building materials may have been used.
The most effective way for you to be confident in knowing whether your home has asbestos present is to have it professionally tested by an asbestos specialist, like us here at Asbestos Australia. We provide our asbestos inspection services all over Melbourne, Victoria and Australia.
