Asbestos in a building: How & where to check?

Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were popular until people realized that they cause deadly lung diseases. Due to their negative effects on human health, these materials were completely banned in 2003. You can’t tell the presence of ACMs by just looking at them. But you can look for some signs. Signs that your house or working space may have contained ACMs include pipes that have gray or white remnants and old flooring tiles in a 9-inch by the 9-inch pattern. If you already found these signs, then you must immediately contact a professional contractor to perform sampling and testing.

Part 1: 3 Steps To Do The Initial Checking

Keep in mind that when you see an ACM; you can’t saw it, cut it, break it, and not even scrub it. You need to handle it with care so that the fibre dust will not spread anywhere.

You can follow this guidance to identify fibrous materials in your property:

  1. Identify the age of the building: The first thing you need to do is to find out about the building’s age. Recently built buildings, which are built after 2003, are mostly safe from ACMs. So, if your building was built before this year, you better watch out! You may have hazardous materials on your premise.
  2. Look for the signs of damaged ACMs: If you have figured out the age of the building, now check the condition of your ACM products. If the condition is still good, then it’s usually not dangerous. But, it’s a completely different story when fibrous materials products get degraded. Damaged fibrous products are very dangerous since friable materials can easily go airborne. So, no matter what the condition is, it’s better for you to have them tested by professional assessors.
  3. Make a wise decision to test the suspected area: Start making a decision wisely! It is better to have your property checked by experts regardless the condition of the existed fibrous materials in your building. Who would have known if they get weathered already? Therefore you have to ensure yourself that you are safe from the dangers of ACM. Get professional removalists to perform asbestos testing Sunshine Coast today.
