Why Remove Asbestos in Newcastle?

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 asbestos 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. Read our Asbestos removal guide for detailed information.

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

About Newcastle

Newcastle is the second-largest city in New South Wales and the sixth-largest in Australia. It’s situated at the mouth of the Hunter River. It is well recognised as the ‘gateway to the Hunter Valley‘ and is definitely the economic, administrative and industrial hub of the area.

It has a wide variety of beaches, a rich heritage of Victorian architecture, a compelling early past of convicts and a vast selection of excellent restaurants and luxury accommodation options. Historically, the coal and steel town (taking advantage of the excellent harbour at the mouth of the Hunter River and the huge coal reserves beneath the Hunter Valley) has had to reinvent itself in the last two decades.

Today it is a modern city with an attractive and up-to-date port foreshore (lots of trendy restaurants and fun walks) and ample amenities to keep an interested tourist entertained for at least a week.
