Asbestos is a natural mineral mined from the earth that was used in the majority of Australian building projects prior to the 1990s. Due to its strength and durability, fire resistance and insulation properties, asbestos use was widespread, yet was later found as the catalyst for severe health issues.
Asbestos fibres are detrimental as they are up to 200 times thinner than a single stand of human hair, near invisible, can remain airborne for an extensive time, and can be breathed into the lungs.
Production of asbestos-based material ceased in December 2003 due to a national ban, and it is illegal to sell or distribute the product in Australia.
It is highly recommended that when dealing with asbestos, be it a renovation or demolition of a suspicious dwelling, that a professional be engaged to manage the severe health risks associated, and ensure that the required safety precautions are implemented.
