Asbestos: Uses and Type

Building products containing asbestos were phased out of use in domestic properties around the late 1980’s and were banned from commercial use in December 2003. However, asbestos containing materials (ACMs) can still be found in many buildings today, considering how widely they were used in the past. Many residential and commercial properties in the ACT built before 1985 will likely have asbestos used in parts of its construction.

Asbestos can commonly be found in:

  • Wood heater insulations, including underneath hearths
  • Kitchen splashbacks
  • Vinyl floor tiles and their backing
  • Wall tiles backing for bathroom sheets
  • Imitation bricks used to clad buildings
  • Roof capping, eaves linings and roof guttering

Even though it is possible to find asbestos signs on your property using visual cues, it is advisable that you hire certified experts to test your property for asbestos using their specialized tools and equipment. In a nutshell, you can’t just look at some materials with the naked eyes and conclude that it contains asbestos. You will need asbestos testing services.
