What is asbestos?
Asbestos was once a common material used in the construction industry. It was popular for its fire retardant and insulation properties and can be found in thousands of homes, offices and other structures across Australia. It was not until the 1980s that asbestos was found to be the cause of a number of serious diseases, such as asbestosis and lung cancer. It was banned across the country shortly after this.
The importance of removal
Although asbestos has been banned for decades, the effects of it are still being felt today and there are many older structures containing the substance. While asbestos is harmless if it is not disturbed, once it becomes airborne it can make a person very sick and can even be fatal. Professional removal of asbestos is vital to ensuring the home or office is safe.
Asbestos Removal Costs
The cost of removing asbestos from a building and its surrounds is largely based on the size of the structure and how much asbestos needs removing. The first step is to get an inspection to find out where and how much asbestos your property has, at which point the removalist can give you a quote for the removal.
