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).
Both friable and non-friable asbestos materials need to be handled and removed carefully. There are many reasons why you need to seek help from a professional to perform asbestos removal Sydney process, such as:
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 fibre or not.
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; we might inhale them without even realising it.
- These properties make these fibres as a potential threat to our 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.
