Deadly Asbestos 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.
Asbestos materials are usually bonded with other materials and can be commonly called fibro cement sheeting. Loose friable asbestos can be found in insulating or as a backing material to vinyl sheet flooring.
Continuous exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to serious health complications such as increasing the chance of mesothelioma. This means that removing an asbestos substance from your building can be an absolute necessity.
Below, you can find some facts about the presence of asbestos materials in Adelaide.
Fact #1: Asbestos may crumble and flakes very easily
Although many countries have banned the use of asbestos in building constructions, asbestos is still present in some buildings in Adelaide. Unfortunately, friable asbestos crumbles and flakes very easily.
Once it crumbles and flakes, asbestos releases harmful fibres that circulate in the air. The fibres are responsible for causing lung cancer. – NIH
For this reason, it is highly recommended that you have your building inspected for asbestos if you suspect that it has asbestos or before you buy a property. You should hire experts to inspect your building for asbestos and remove it if present. It is only experienced professionals who can tell whether asbestos in your building has started to crumble and flake then remove it safely and completely.
Fact #2: The dangerous health effects of asbestos exposure
Concerns related to asbestos exposure have first appeared in the early 20th century. Many workers during this period died from respiratory diseases caused by asbestos exposure. The development of illnesses in people depends on the degree and duration of exposure.
Asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer are considered the most common asbestos-related diseases to occur due to asbestos exposure. The average latency period, the time from the first exposure to asbestos fibres until the development of a disease, for these diseases is between 10-50 years.
Many of the people who contracted the disease are the ones who have worked 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 from living or working in contaminated environments.
Fact #3: Only a licensed removalist can remove friable asbestos materials
Remember, Asbestos Removal Specialists Adelaide perform a safe and effective removal service that can only be performed by qualified professionals. Moreover, removing asbestos 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 asbestos removal process on your own, leave it to our team. The Adelaide city council also recommends hiring a licensed removal specialist regardless of the amount of asbestos in your house or property.
Only a B-class or A-class licence holder is supposed to handle the removal of more than 10 square meters of non-friable asbestos-containing materials. Moreover, friable asbestos-containing materials should only be removed by an A-class licence holder. – Government of South Australia

- Step 3 – Vacuuming: Specialized vacuum equipment will be used to clean the damaged parts or area thoroughly. This vacuuming and cleaning ensure that no harmful asbestos fibres are left on the surrounding surfaces.
- Step 4 – Air sampling: When required, we will perform air sampling in the affected areas or rooms as well as the entire property to ensure the air quality is safe for inhalation by humans.
