An alarming number of buildings built prior to 1990 in Queensland still house dangerous asbestos fibres. Asbestos is highly hazardous and needs to be removed professionally and safely by a well-equipped experienced team. Asbestos exposure can lead to serious illness and death. Asbestos has been linked to lung cancer and other fatal medical conditions. An estimated one in three Queensland homes contain some form of asbestos.
As a rule of thumb, if your house was built before the mid 1980s, it is highly likely to have been built with some materials containing asbestos. After 1990, it is highly unlikely that it was built with any kind of materials containing asbestos . The above is just a rule of thumb though, the only way to know for certain if a material contains asbestos is to have it examined by one of our friendly staff at Irwin Asbestos. We are the asbestos removal experts in Brisbane.

Non-friable asbestos is found in a variety of products, including insulation, flooring, shingles, and siding. It is also found in automobile brake pads and clutches. When these products are damaged or disturbed, asbestos fibres can be released into the air, where they can be inhaled by people nearby.
Asbestos exposure can occur in both occupational and non-occupational settings. Workers in certain industries, such as construction, mining, and shipbuilding, are at increased risk of exposure to asbestos. People who live or work in older buildings may also be at risk, as asbestos was used extensively in building construction in the past.
