Why Remove Asbestos in Port Stephens?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that can usually be present in rock, sediment, or soil. It has solid fibers that are heat tolerant and have excellent insulating properties. You can’t see asbestos fibers with the naked eye, and since they’re very light, the wind can fly long distances.

The commercialization of Asbestos began with the Industrial Revolution. It was during the beginning of the 20th century when Asbestos mining had been a major thing and a lot of countries had been importing this material for its durability compared to other materials at that time.

Asbestos was thought to be very useful for construction materials because of its properties, but later on, it was found that this material was actually harmful to human health and can invite lung diseases to cancer. It is also classified as carcinogenic and is banned by the Government of Australia in 2003.

If your home was build before that period specified in the 1990s then your home has a chance of having this material. The material is not harm until it starts to degrade the air quality. However, it is a good idea to get things assessed and get it removed as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Friable Asbestos?

Friable asbestos is asbestos in the form of a powder, or it is soft and crumbles under the weight of the side. Examples include the lining of the asbestos tubing and the backing of the asbestos-backed vinyl sheet flooring. In certain cases , non-friable asbestos based material, such as asbestos cement blocks, may become brittle (e.g. if it is involved in a serious fire).

Why do Asbestos Removalists wear protective Equipment?

Asbestos threats are affected by how much a person can be exposed to airborne fibres. As such, asbestos disposal workers are expected to take special precautions to prevent inhaling fibres, as they deal with asbestos on a regular basis, and the use of personal protective equipment is one way to achieve this. During the removal of asbestos, the release of fibre is often regulated by the use of secure working methods and by the bonding action of cement or other binders for other products containing asbestos. Those in the asbestos work environment do not have significant exposure if normal healthy workplace procedures are used. Air testing at certain thresholds usually sees fibre amounts below the detection point.

Who can remove Asbestos?

A licence for the removal of materials containing asbestos is required in Western Australia. Only the holder of the licence or the employee of the holder of the licence can carry out this form of job.

Each licence shall be valid for a term of three years and shall be endorsed under a variety of conditions relating to the manner in which asbestos clearance work is carried out.
