If you’re living or working in a building that was built earlier than 1987, asbestos might be an issue. Asbestos is a construction material used in the construction industry to build commercial and residential properties. Asbestos is basically the simpler name for fibrous silicate rock-forming minerals.
This construction material used to be mined and broken down from mineral clumps to groups of loose, small, odourless and tasteless fibres. Due to its properties, asbestos needs to be identified exclusively by specialists in the field such as Demolition X, a licensed asbestos removal company.
Asbestos must be removed because it presents a health risk when crumbled. The fine fibres travel through air and get into our lungs. The worst case scenario: lung cancer and other fatal diseases!
As you can see the removal of asbestos from any inhabited space is absolutely a must. This is why, asbestos removal is not optional, but a requirment by law. In Australia, individuals are not allowed to remove asbestos by themselves if the area contaminated is larger than 10 square meters. In this case, they need to contract licensed asbestos removal companies that have the right tools and equipment to identify and safely remove asbestos.
