Frequently Asked Questions
It is impossible to determine if a material contains asbestos just by looking at it. There are over 3500 uses for asbestos in construction and building. 85% of commercial buildings contain asbestos in their structure.
I have found Asbestos, what do I do?
- If you have asbestos in your home or workplace, this is usually not a serious problem. Asbestos materials only become a hazard when disturbed e.g. by heating engineers, plumbers or when generally renovating your home. Also general deterioration can cause asbestos to be a hazard.
- Actions depend on the type and condition of the
asbestos containingmaterials. Asbestos fibre is safe provided it remains bonded in the material in which it is used and does not become airborne. There is no danger unless asbestos fibres are released and inhaled into the lungs.
Do I need Asbestos Removal?
- Generally, materials in good condition will not release asbestos
fibres. If the materials are in good condition and are unlikely to be disturbed, it can be left in place. You should monitor it regularly for signs of deterioration e.g. flaking, broken edges, damp etc.
- If the
asbestos containingmaterial is in bad condition, or it becomes damaged, or if you are planning to make changes to your property that may disturb it, then you will need to have the material repaired or complete asbestos removal.
Is My Health at Risk?
- Items that contain asbestos do not represent a significant risk to your health if they remain undamaged and undisturbed.
