WHAT IS ASBESTOS?
Asbestos cement products were highly regarded in the 1920s building industry. Asbestos was found to contain strong fibres that were durable and fire resistant. However, these fibres can float into the air without being detected, and when inhaled, can cause illness, such as lung cancer.
It was finally banned from use in Australia in 2003, however it had already been installed in a large variety of products, including insulation, fibro and roofing materials.
WHY IS IT DANGEROUS?
Finding asbestos in your home or workplace in Brisbane is a common occurrence, especially when undergoing renovations. While living in a home that has asbestos-containing material is not actually dangerous, when this material is disturbed (such as damage through renovations), the fibres then become airborne and can cause harm. This is why it is always important to have your home or workplace tested before any renovations take place.
Asbestos related illnesses will affect you later on in life, which is why it is important to protect yourself now.
