The Earth's surface contains the natural mineral asbestos. It contains sturdy fibres with superior tensile strength, fire resistance, and insulating qualities. Up to 200 times thinner than a human hair, asbestos fibres can remain in the atmosphere for extended periods of time, go unnoticed by the naked human eye, and enter the lungs through inhalation.
In Queensland, a startlingly large number of sites constructed before 1990 continue to contain hazardous asbestos fibres. Due to its high level of danger, asbestos must be removed in a professional manner, safely, by a knowledgeable asbestos removal company. A serious illness or even death can result from asbestos exposure. Asbestos has been connected to lung cancer and other serious illnesses that can be fatal.
According to estimates, asbestos is present in one out of every three homes in Queensland. As a general rule, your home was probably constructed using some asbestos-containing materials if it was constructed before the middle of the 1980s. It is extremely unlikely that it was constructed using any asbestos-containing materials after 1990. However, the information above is only a general guideline; the only way to be certain whether a material contains asbestos is to have it examined by a member of our knowledgeable staff at Irwin Asbestos Management.
