Asbestos during home renovations
Renovating a house can be quite stressful sometimes, moreover when your house has asbestos within it. Most Australian buildings built before 1980 are highly likely to have asbestos. Therefore, if your house was built before this year, you need to check for the presence of asbestos before conducting any renovation work. Even a little mistake can lead to serious problems including health issues, criminal charges and fines.
If you are thinking of doing an asbestos testing work yourself, take care to wear the appropriate protective wear and follow the correct removal testing procedures. The government does not recommend a DIY attempt to handle asbestos materials. Asbestos mishandling can cause further contamination, it is recommended to leave sample testing to the professionals, such as Asbestos Watch Central Coast.
Asbestos exposure can lead to severe lung diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. Moreover, there is still no specific cure for asbestos diseases.
Home Renovation Checklists
When it comes to asbestos testing, this issue should not take it lightly. Asbestos testing works should be performed by professionals only. All testing samples should be taken to a NATA certified laboratory.
You can follow the guidelines below to ensure safe asbestos testing has taken place:
- Find out the age of a building: It is important to know the age of your building to identify whether your place is likely to has asbestos materials or not. Ask the former owner or check the building’s report to see there is any record of past asbestos existence.
- See any sign of damage: If you happen to find asbestos products in your place, then you should monitor its condition. Once asbestos is damaged, is when the material becomes a problem, asbestos fibres can become airborne. Let the experts handle the asbestos testing work for you, as they ensure to encapsulate any testing area, mitigating risk of floating fibre.
- If in doubt, test: If you suspect asbestos, treat the material as though it IS asbestos until notified otherwise by a test. Contact Asbestos Watch to perform these testing works to ensure your health and safety.
