We all know that asbestos is a dangerous material – but how much do you really know about it?
According to the Western Australian Department of Health, asbestos is a ‘fibrous mineral that was widely used in the manufacture of building materials and other products. In Australia, the use of asbestos was phased out in the manufacture of building products through the 1980s and completely banned in 2003.’
Commercial asbestos comes in 3 main types in the state of Western Australia:
- White asbestos
- Brown asbestos
- Blue asbestos
Products such as asbestos cement contain approximately 10-15% asbestos. But what are the health risks of this hazardous mineral?
According to the Department of Health:
“Asbestos can cause a number of diseases, including lung cancer, mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the lung or abdomen) and asbestosis (stiffening of the lungs).”
The presence of asbestos in your family home or place of business, such as cement fences or cement roofs, should be treated very seriously. If your fence or roof has deteriorated or become damaged, it is strongly recommended that you hire a professional and fully qualified asbestos removal company (you may even be issued with a fine if the appropriate steps are not taken). Only an experienced asbestos removal company will be able to follow the required safety standards and follow the correct procedures for safe removal of asbestos waste.
