Is Your Home Full of Asbestos? Find Out with an Inspection and Asbestos Testing of your Caloundra Home
Do you know what asbestos is or how dangerous it can be? If you are a typical homeowner in the Caloundra area, you may have never given it much thought. You should be concerned, though, since exposure to asbestos fibres over a long period can lead to serious health problems. Most of us do not know what asbestos is and won’t even recognise it when we see it. That is why at AHI Asbestos Consultants we can provide you with an asbestos inspection at your Caloundra home to ensure your safety.
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a mineral that belongs to the silicate family. It is made up of groups of fibres and because of its composition and chemical makeup, asbestos is an active binding material. It is also resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals. Due to its advantages, asbestos was used in the making of many products found in the building of homes. Ceiling tiles, floor tiles, insulation, and many more items were made using asbestos up until the 1960 and ‘70s when the effects of exposure became apparent.
Why You Should Have an Asbestos Inspection at Your Caloundra Home
The only way to prove that your home holds asbestos containing materials is to have an inspection. The examination should be carried out by experienced professionals who know what to look for and where to look. At Asbestos Home Inspections, we provide local inspectors with extensive experience in both building and asbestos inspection. Homeowners can feel assured knowing that they will receive an affordable, comprehensive inspection report that is completed in a timely fashion so that they will understand the condition of their property.
We provide all of our homeowners with a full inspection of the interior of the home including under the roof cavity, an area where asbestos materials are frequently found. If possible, we will search underneath the home, and we will inspect the exterior of the home and the rest of the property as well. We collect samples from your Caloundra home that we send out for asbestos testing to a NATA accredited facility. This will confirm for sure that asbestos is present. Also, as part of our inspection is a safety risk assessment of the property.

Prolonged exposure to asbestos materials can lead to serious health problems. Most of these issues are related to the respiratory system. Breathing in the asbestos fibres over time can lead to a condition called asbestosis, which causes difficulty breathing. Exposure to asbestos is also connected to mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs, and lung cancer. Because of these dangers, Asbestos Home Inspections works hard to keep Caloundra and other local area homeowners safe.
