If you’re planning to renovate or demolish a property in NSW, chances are you already know the importance of checking for asbestos before you begin.

When you perform renovations or demolitions your home, it is your responsibility to prevent unsafe asbestos handling. First, you need to determine whether your property contains asbestos. If it does, then you need to employ a licensed asbestos removal service to remove and dispose of dangerous materials with minimum risk.

Does my home contain asbestos?

Throughout the 1900s, a large majority of homes built by Australians contained some sort of asbestos material. This is especially true of homes built in the 70s and 80s, but any home built or renovated before 1990 is likely to have asbestos-containing materials (ACM) somewhere in its construction.

Asbestos declined sharply in usage after 1990, but asbestos building materials were not banned entirely until 2003. Therefore, if your home was built before 2003, the only way to be certain that it does not contain asbestos is to have an inspection performed by a licensed asbestos removal service.

Asbestos is present in many older building materials. Don't take any chances!

Common asbestos building materials

Before its use was discontinued, manufacturers commonly used asbestos in many common building materials. They now make these products with other substances – typically fibreglass or cellulose – but older versions are likely to be asbestos-containing materials (ACM).

  • Fibro (fibro-board, fibro-cement or fibrous cement)
  • AC sheeting (asbestos cement)
  • Weatherboard/cladding
  • Wall and roof sheeting – typically corrugated roofing sheets, but also some tiles designed to look like slate roofing
  • Roofing insulation (take immediate action if you have loose roofing insulation which might be ACM)
  • Vinyl floor tiles, lino, carpets with hessian or vinyl backing
  • Insulation around pipes

These products are not only found in housing; older garages, sheds, laundries, and dog kennels may also contain asbestos-based materials. If your building contains any of these materials, and was constructed before 1990, then asbestos is likely to be present.

When renovating or removing structures that may contain asbestos, it is advisable to either:

  • Call a licensed professional to do asbestos testing to clarify things for you, OR
  • Assume that asbestos is present, and go straight to hiring a licensed asbestos removal service

If you aren’t sure, always assume that asbestos is present! The penalties for unsafe handling of asbestos are significant, and the danger to your health, and the health of those around you, is serious. Don’t take the risk – call the professionals at D&N Asbestos Removal.

ASBESTOS DANGERS

Why is safe asbestos removal so important? Asbestos inhalation can cause potentially fatal illnesses like asbestosis and mesothelioma (a cancer caused almost exclusively by asbestos), as well as other chronic conditions. Read about the most common health risks here, or click below for more information.

Don't take the dangers of asbestos lightly

Proper planning for safe asbestos removal

There is a lot of legislation around building work and asbestos removal. Did you know you have to alert council for all building and demolition work to any structure on your property? Before renovating or demolishing it is necessary to complete the paperwork… but don’t worry, we do it for you!

At D&N Asbestos and Demolition, we take the headache out of ensuring you comply with regulations. We visit the site and compile a detailed asbestos removal plan, including photos and diagrams. Then we submit these plans and notifications to Safe Work NSW. We also prepare a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) and an Asbestos Control Plan (ACP). While the work is being carried out, we keep a copy of this document on site, for anyone who needs to access this information.

We also alert surrounding properties of the work and when it will happen. Only when all the preparation is completed, paperwork prepared and on site, do we start the asbestos removal process.
