While asbestos hasn’t been used to build homes in Geelong and the rest of Australia since the 1980s, this toxic substance remains in many buildings today. If you’ve been told that you have asbestos in your home or business, you likely have a lot of questions. What exactly is asbestos, anyway? And do you really need asbestos removal?
Digga Demolitions and Excavations is happy to address all of your questions and concerns. Here’s what you should know.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used for hundreds of thousands of years. In early years it was used to make candle wicks, paper, tablecloths, clothing and even toothpaste. While the health risks associated with this toxic mineral were known as early as the 1930s, it wasn’t until 2003 that Australia banned asbestos-containing products.
For years, asbestos was used as a building material because of its high resistance to fire. And when asbestos remains undisturbed, it generally causes no problems. However, if you’re attempting a remodelling or demolition project, the work will disturb the asbestos. When asbestos fibres become airborne and are inhaled, they can cause a variety of problems, including lung cancer.
When you’re dealing with asbestos, it’s important to get help from professionals who have the equipment needed to handle it safely. If you need asbestos removal in Geelong, contact Digga Demolitions and Excavations.
