Why You Should Have an Asbestos Inspection In Your Cleveland, Mt Gravatt, Woolloongabba, Or Paddington Home
If you live in an older home on the north side of Brisbane, you may want to consider an asbestos inspection. Asbestos is a material that was used in the construction of homes and commercial buildings during the 20th century because of its abilities to act as an insulator and fire retardant. In the 1970s and 1980s, the effects of long-term exposure to asbestos came to light, and it is no longer used in construction. You should have an asbestos inspection in your Cleveland home or building if the structures were built before 1980.
Asbestos, Its Uses and Effects
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral mined for its many different purposes. It is a binding material used in many different products that you can find in a typical home or workplace. It is found in roof shingles, floor tiles, and in structural insulation. Asbestos fibres can be released into the environment when these manufactured products are disturbed. For example, a home renovation project may require the removal of floor tiles. Removing those tiles will disturb the asbestos and release the fibres into the air.
Breathing in these fibres has been determined to be harmful to humans. Studies through the years show that long-term exposure to asbestos can damage the lungs and cause a variety of respiratory ailments and even lung cancer and mesothelioma. Asbestos-related diseases like cancer do not appear immediately. They can develop 20 to 50 years after exposure. That is why it is important to take great caution in dealing with asbestos.
