If your house was built prior to 1990 there is a good chance that your house has some form of asbestos containing material (ACM). Approximately one third of all homes built in Australia contain asbestos products.
Before renovating your home you should always take precautions to ensure that you keep yourself, family and surrounding neighbours safe from the potential health risks of asbestos related diseases which are potentially life threatening.
Being able to identify suspect asbestos containing materials in the home can be a task. With so much information on the internet and advice it is important to keep in mind that a licenced asbestos assessor or competent person such as a consultant from 246 Asbestos Consulting can potentially save someone from a asbestos related disease by identifying asbestos containing materials in the home.
It is all to often that we attend a do it yourself project gone wrong from misinformation being passed on to the home owners by untrained people in the identification of asbestos containing materials.
If you are unsure as to whether your house contains asbestos contact 246 Asbestos Consulting for a consultation.
