- Loads of news articles, from back in the day sounded off the alarm about this hazardous material, which affected so many people at the time,and if not presently removed and dealt with by seasoned specialists, it still can and will.
The Asbestos Story
Asbestos was utilised in the world of building for quite some time from the 1950s up until the 1980s, and was an important building material, due to its rot and flame-resistant properties, strength, low cost and ease of use. It was extremely versatile and usedfor the building of things such as:
- Floor tiles
However, it wasn’t until the start of the 1970s that stories emerged about the dangerous nature of asbestos and then over than a decade until it was at last finally banned. Asbestos, by itself, actually poses no danger, but if its fibres somehow manage to become airborne, through the likes of being removed, renovations, fire, natural disaster,etc. the fibres become brittle, flake off and are then in danger of being inhaled.
Mind at Rest
Some general contractors may offersome advice, as in “no worries, mate” about it and won’t even inspect it for asbestos.
