Reasons Why You Need A Professional Removalist In Sydney
Asbestos materials were mainly classified into two categories, which are friable (Class A) and non-friable (Class B).
What is friable asbestos?
Friable asbestos materials tend to release a high percentage of fibres into the surrounding environment when they are disturbed. Thus, they tend to pose a greater risk to a person’s health. Examples: Numerous building materials that are used at homes such as floor covers, pipe insulators and fire retardants usually contain the friable type.
What is non-friable asbestos?
Non-friable asbestos materials have a firmer and solid characteristic compared to friable ones since the fibres are bound in the material’s matrix. They are less unlikely to cause health-related problems when left undisturbed. Examples: Cement products, paints, and floor covering made from vinyl are examples of materials that often contain non-friable fibres.
It is difficult to determine whether a material in your house contains asbestos or not
You cannot simply tell if a material contains asbestos by only looking at it, so you must treat the suspected material as if it contains asbestos fibres. As stated in NSW.gov.au, asbestos materials can commonly be found in:
- corrugated roofing
- thermal insulator
- linoleum and vinyl flooring
- electricity boxes
- wiring insulation
- old domestic heater
- fibro sheet fencing
- hot-water systems
These following products may also contain fibres such as cement, decorative coatings, fibrolite (1972-1982), durock (up to 1974), coverline profiled sheets (1972-1982), hardiflex (1982), new hardiflex (1982), glamortex, and whisper.
A thorough inspection by a microscopic analysis is needed to determine whether these products contain asbestos or not.
A DIY repair job can cause the release of dangerous asbestos fibres
60.5% of do-it-yourself renovators reported being exposed to asbestos during home renovations. Therefore, before carrying out any DIY renovations, it is important to know which materials might contain asbestos so that you can take the proper precautions when renovating or making repairs. If your house was built before 1987, there is a good chance that it contains asbestos.
Why asbestos fibres are dangerous?
- When asbestos materials are disturbed, they can release thin fibres into the air.
- These fibres are invisible and can float in the air for a long time. They can be inhaled without even realising it.
- Asbestos in your home could be a potential risk to your health.
The health effects of inhaling asbestos fibres may not appear immediately and take quite a while to be apparent. But once an asbestos-related disease is diagnosed, it’s often too late to treat it. This is why it is important to take preventive actions to overcome this problem.
A licence is needed to remove asbestos
A person licensed to carry out asbestos removal is referred to as an A-class or B-class asbestos removalist and has permission to perform asbestos removal. Only experts that have an A-class licence are allowed to remove friable and bonded asbestos from your home, and B-class removalists are licensed to remove bonded asbestos only.
Performing an asbestos removal process by yourself can be dangerous for you and the residents of your building. The New South Wales Department of Health stated that even the smallest amount of asbestos fibres could cause lung cancers in the future if being inhaled.
It’s important to choose experienced and licensed specialists, such as our Asbestos Removal Team, to perform asbestos removal at your house. By doing so, you ensure that you and the people around you are having a minimised risk of getting asbestos-related diseases in the future.
