Testing & Inspection In Melbourne
Many homes, workplaces and building structures in Melbourne and Australia in general were built using asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos was extremely popular in use right up until the 1980s and was not completed banned until 2003, so if your home was not constructed recently, chances are it contains asbestos.
You should only go for professional asbestos inspections, asbestos audits and removals of asbestos minerals in Melbourne, rather than trying to deal with it yourself – especially if you have no prior experience or qualifications in asbestos. There are significant health risks in handling asbestos and disrupting the materials further can be very dangerous.
If you’re not familiar with building practices and asbestos-containing-materials, identifying them is not easy and it doesn’t help that asbestos can be present in pretty much all types of rooms and buildings. Asbestos may be present in:
- Insulation and fireproofing
- Pipe cement – cement in general
An expert asbestos inspection involves: a consultation where you can discuss your concerns and what you are aware of regarding your building and asbestos situation, reviewing your entire home and assessing the risk and hazards.
There is less risk in the removal of asbestos-containing-materials that are still intact and undamaged because in these cases, the dangerous minerals and fibres won’t have become disrupted by cracks or erosion and are less likely to be inhaled or to spread. Given that asbestos-containing structures in Melbourne are a bit older in age, the chances of damage can be on the higher end and the level of it should be determined by a professional.
