WHAT IS ASBESTOS?

Asbestos was a heavily used building material from the general timeline of 1950’s to 1990’s in Australia and worldwide. It was known for its great insulation, fire protection, strength and resistance to chemical erosion properties. Over time, however, we have discovered very detrimental health effects with this material.

Being in contact with a building built with this material is not dangerous in itself. It is once these building materials are disturbed and aggravated (i.e. due to construction) that these materials become active.

IMPORTANCE OF ASBESTOS REMOVAL

Asbestos is also known as a Hidden-Killer.

Anyone who performs work in their older house or building without testing first for asbestos is in danger of exposure to asbestos-contaminated air. It is often described as a hidden killer because it can take 10 + years to find out you have cancer from asbestos exposure.

Many people who have come in contact with asbestos for prolonged periods have suffered from serious chronic diseases such as Mesothelioma, and lung cancer. This is a very serious issue and its effect on health has been very well documented. These diseases take time to develop, and when diagnosed, it is often too late for any corrective treatment.
