Asbestos Removal in Adelaide, SA

Section 1: Deadly fibrous materials in Adelaide

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that contains tiny and strong fibres used for multiple purposes. It was used mainly during the years between 1920 and 1989, so any structure constructed within those years will most likely contain it.
These materials are usually bonded with other materials and are commonly called as fibro cement sheeting. Loose friable type can be found in insulating or as a backing material to vinyl sheet flooring.
Continuous exposure to fibres can lead to serious health complications such as increasing the chance of mesothelioma. This means that removing a fibrous substance from your building is an absolute necessity. Below, you can find some facts about the presence of ACMs in Adelaide.

Fact #1: Fibre crumbles and flakes very easily
Although many countries have banned the use of fibrous materials in building constructions, fibrous material is still present in some buildings in Adelaide. Unfortunately, fibre crumbles and flakes very easily.

Once it crumbles and flakes, ACM releases harmful dust that circulates in the air. This dust is a very risky or harmful carcinogen because it is responsible for causing lung cancer. via:https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/causes-prevention/risk/substances/asbestos/asbestos-fact-sheet

For this reason, it is highly recommended that you have your building inspected for ACM if you suspect that it has asbestos or before you buy a property. You should hire experts to inspect your building for ACMs and remove them if present. It is only experienced professionals who can tell whether ACM in your building has started to crumble and flake then remove it safely and completely.

Fact #2: The dangerous health effects of fibre exposure
Concerns related to fibre exposure have first appeared in the early 20th century. Many workers during this period died from respiratory diseases related to fibre exposure. The development of illness in human depends on the degree and duration of exposure.

Asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer are considered as the most common asbestos-related diseases to occur due to fibres exposure. The average latency period, the time from the first exposure to fibres until the development of a disease, for these diseases is between 10-50 years.

Many of the people who got the diseases are the ones who work closely with construction works, such as builders. But, even though you are not involved directly with construction works, you can still have a chance of developing these diseases.

Fact #3: Only a licensed removalist can remove friable materials
Remember, safe and effective fibre elimination services can only be performed by qualified professionals. Moreover, removing fibrous materials involves a number of government regulations and requires a great deal of paperwork for insurance purposes, so never ever try to attempt to carry out the removal process on your own. The Adelaide city council also recommends hiring a licensed contractor specialist regardless of the amount of fibres in your house or property. Read more: Asbestos management plan in Adelaide
