The History: About Asbestos
The use of asbestos was very much in vogue right up until the late 1980’s but was later revealed to pose a health and safety hazard and was ultimately banned by Australian and international authorities. The advantages back then for choosing asbestos were its versatility and strength and it was very common to find it being used mainly in insulation and fireproofing, due to the incombustible properties of asbestos. Unfortunately, the fibres found in asbestos were found to have been strongly linked to a number of serious health conditions, such as cancer, when inhaled. In fact there is even a specific condition caused directly by asbestos, which is called asbestosis. The lungs are the organ most affected by inhaling the fibres and lead to serious breathing problems. Because of this there has been a large scale effort to clean up unwanted and unhealthy asbestos in homes and commercial properties across Australia.

Although the use of asbestos has been universally banned, some households and properties still carry traces or even entire swathes of hazardous asbestos.

The Dangers if you don’t Remove Asbestos
Although the main use of asbestos was deployed outside of your house or property, usually on the roof, this does not detract from the dangers you are exposed to. Water tanks were another common use for the asbestos and this poses an even bigger danger, due to its association with water, especially if drunk. Contaminated water should never be taken lightly so if you believe or are unsure what material your water tank is made out of, then contact us immediately. We would be able to confirm or otherwise, almost immediately and be onsite within a matter of hours and perform any removal work required.
