Industrial and Commercial Asbestos Removal

Despite banning asbestos for construction use in 2003, there are still plenty of residential and commercial buildings standing today that contain asbestos. The reason why asbestos is so prolific in homes and structures built in the 80s and 90s is due to its ‘idyllic properties’, as it was a widely available material that was strong, cheap and insulative.  In fact, it’s so widely spread, that Australia is responsible for one of the highest rates of asbestos per capita in the world. Though asbestos was recognised as a dangerous substance in the 70s, it took decades before the government released an official ban on using it in construction and has since been used in everything from family homes, to schools, hospitals, office buildings and shopping centres. To combat this problem, councils and business owners have enlisted the help of commercial asbestos removal services to safely remove and dispose of asbestos containing materials. If you suspect your building may contain asbestos, we urge you to get in touch with asbestos removal services today.

Why is asbestos dangerous?

A naturally occurring mineral, asbestos contains strong fibres that are up to 200 times thinner than a human hair. Asbestos is a hard wearing, insulative material that’s resistant to fire – which is why it was considered quite the super building material. However, it took many years for people to realise that the fibres released from asbestos wreaked havoc on the lungs, as the body has no way of getting rid of the asbestos once inhaled. This can cause a legion of problems, ranging from chronic lung conditions, cancer and an often fatal form of cancer known as Mesothelioma.

How do I know if my building has asbestos?

Simply put, it’s very hard to recognise asbestos if you’re not trained to identify it. Chances are if your building was erected in any time before 2003, it very likely contains asbestos. Typically, you can expect to find asbestos in the following:

  • Pipe lagging                                   
  • Fibro sheeting
  • water drainage
  • doors
  • ceiling cavities
  • lifts and lift wells
  • roofing
