When you are buying or renovating an older home, built pre-1990, you need to be aware of what parts of your home may contain asbestos. Our team of licensed asbestos removal experts offers an inspection and identification service to ensure your family is safe in your new home or during your renovation.
Why are pre-1990 homes at risk? Asbestos cement products developed in the 1920s, and highly popular in the building industry between the 1940s – 1980s as it was found to be durable and water resistant, as well as being great for wet areas (which is why you’ll often find it in bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens). It was during the 1980s that these products were phased out, and asbestos was banned from use here in Australia in 2003.
If your home was built post-1990, it is unlikely to contain asbestos products, however, they could have been used right up to the early 2000’s, so if you are suspicious, a good idea is to get a licensed asbestos removal in Brisbane northside.
