Section1: 3 important things about fibrous roofing products

Asbestos is actually a fibrous mineral that became a popular building material back in the 1950’s. It is still a vital part of many schools, homes, and buildings. Initially, asbestos was widely used as fire proofing and insulation solution. Inhalation of asbestos can lead to many diseases that include lung cancer as well. If the asbestos in your home is disintegrating then it is a matter of concern and you have to opt for asbestos removal Canberra contractor to get rid of this issue. The use of asbestos was banned in 1999 so if your house was built after that time frame then there should be no issue. However, any house that has been built before this date then the asbestos issue has to be dealt with.

Let’s see why you need to contact professionals to remove fibrous roofs:

1. Asbestos is still present in Canberra

Asbestos was extensively used in construction and other industries between 1946 and 1980 in Australia. Mining ceased in 1983 and use of asbestos was phased out from 1989 and banned entirely in December 2003. Now ACM cannot be imported, used or recycled. However, ACM remains an issue as two-thirds of homes in Australia built between World War II and the early 1980s used ACM. Most common applications were in roofing, exterior and interior walls, fencing, switchboards, paints, insulations etc.

2. Potential health hazards from fibrous roof

When the contaminated roof is in good condition and intact, it is generally not hazardous. However, aging and weather can weaken this non-friable substance and turn them into friable. A demolition or renovation work can also disturb this material.

Friable material can release fibre into the air and make them become airborne. When being inhaled, fibre can lodge within the lungs and lead to the development of aggressive diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Note: Avoid removing, cutting, disturbing, and breaking the ACM roofs alone!

 3. A license is required to remove friable ACM roof

When you find a fibrous roof in your home in Canberra then the first thing that you should do is not panic. If the material made of ACM is in a good condition then you need not worry too much. However, what you need to do is to keep monitoring the condition of the material from time to time. If the fibrous roof is damaged or in a bad condition then it is necessary that you should call a professional service provider right away.
