HOW TO IDENTIFY ASBESTOS WALLS AND ASBESTOS CONTAINING MATERIALS
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that offers excellent electrical and heat insulation properties. Because of this, it was commonly used as a building material for much of the 20th century, and by the time it was banned about 30% of residences used asbestos in the construction. Asbestos walls, ceilings, floors, roofing, and fence panels are common, and if your house was built between 1940 and 1990 there is a high chance of finding asbestos. The GBAR Group can recommend a qualified inspector so you can confirm the presence of asbestos.
Asbestos fibres are bad news, but we can help
Asbestos walls, asbestos-containing building materials like asbestos cement sheet, asbestos insulation and other asbestos materials can create serious health problems. Asbestos-containing products can cause serious asbestos- related diseases, so if you suspect your walls may contain asbestos, it’s really not worth mucking around.
For example, the following serious health conditions have been linked to asbestos fibres, asbestos walls, and other asbestos-containing products:
- Lung cancer and mesothelioma: Inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen. The risk is significantly higher in individuals who smoke.
- Asbestosis: This is a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibres, leading to lung scarring and severe breathing difficulties.
- Other Cancers: Exposure to asbestos can also increase the risk of ovarian, laryngeal, and other cancers.
- Latency Period: The symptoms of asbestos-related diseases often appear decades after exposure, making them particularly bad. If you risk exposure to asbestos materials now, you, and anyone else who was present may face serious health issues down the track.
But that’s where we can help. The GBAR Group offers cost-effective and highly efficient qualified asbestos testing, asbestos inspections, and asbestos removal services. If you suspect asbestos may be present or want to check before proceeding with any building or renovation works, you can give us a call, and we’ll get onto it ASAP.
We conduct thorough asbestos inspections, asbestos testing, and removal and remediation of asbestos materials, for both friable asbestos and non friable asbestos. Our team has the proper training and qualifications to safely remove the asbestos in walls and other building materials.
REMOVING ASBESTOS WALLS IN YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS
If you have asbestos walls, you may want to remove them immediately. However, it should be noted that asbestos walls themselves are not dangerous. Asbestos walls become a dangerous health hazard when the fibres are airborne and inhaled. If you are considering renovations or your walls are considerably damaged, then asbestos walls should be removed immediately by a qualified team.
QUALIFIED ASBESTOS WALL REMOVAL BY THE GBAR GROUP
Because removal of asbestos walls involves significantly disturbing the fibres, they must be removed and disposed of correctly. Asbestos walls are generally easy to remove without too much damage, but old or damaged walls can quickly disintegrate if handled improperly. With the GBAR Group you get specialist asbestos operatives that are rigorously trained and fully certified to ISO and AS standards, and are dedicated to removing all traces of asbestos with a minimal amount of damage.
With a working process that is being continually optimised, we can guarantee both a safe and productive work site. Your asbestos walls will be removed quickly and you can start the next stage of your construction as soon as possible. Once all of the solid asbestos is removed, our team carries out an extensive deep clean to remove any crumbly, soft or airborne particles of asbestos, leaving you with a safe, asbestos-free building.
