Why is Asbestos Dangerous?

When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibres are released into the air. When inhaled, these fibres can cause diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that most often occurs in the lining of the lungs.

How is Asbestos Identified?

Asbestos was widely used in homes and buildings in Perth and across Australia until the mid-1980s. It can be found in a variety of materials including roofing, shingles siding, insulation, floor tiles and pipe cement among others. If your property was built before the 1990s, there’s a chance it may contain asbestos. Asbestos identification isn’t simple as it can’t be done by just looking at a material. It requires a licensed asbestos assessor who may have the material checked by an accredited asbestos testing lab. Asbestos fibres are very small and difficult to distinguish.
