Our Asbestos Removal Services for Sydney
There has been a lot of talk about asbestos causing harm to both your property and peoples’ health over the past few years, and with good reason. It is not something to be taken lightly, nor is it something that you should try to fix yourself. Friable asbestos removal is a matter that must be dealt with by professionals.
What Is It?
Asbestos is an assortment of fibrous silicate materials that was heavily used with building materials from the 1940s until the 1980s. It is often found in fibro cement, air conditioning sheeting, and heating insulation. It was used for so long because it was a durable substance that was fire resistant and had good insulation properties. Little did anyone know what the long term effects were at the time. Its use has been banned from use in Australia since 31 December 2003, which is why Sydney asbestos removal is commonly undertaken in older buildings.
Why Is It Important To Invest In Removal Solutions?
If disturbed and becomes friable, meaning it is dry material and can be crushed by hand, it can be breathed in, much like dust or any other airborne allergen. After a period of 20-30 years of exposure, it can cause health problems. This may sound like nothing to worry about, but the long term effects are very serious.
