Part 1: Asbestos is not a problem of the past

For many years, ACM was widely used as a building material. Many old buildings in Queensland may still have ACM and thus pose serious health risk to the occupants of the house. Thanks to a sustained campaign over the past three decades, most people are now quite familiar with the dangers posed by fibrous materials. Most people are now aware that they could cause cancer although many might not be well versed with the details or the severity of the risks that it poses.

Let’s take a closer look why you need to consider asbestos removal Gold Coast;

1. ACM is still present in numerous buildings in QLD

ACM is still present in a wide variety of buildings in Queensland, including hospitals, schools, and homes, often in fences and roofing products as well as in lagging around steam pipes and boilers. Part of the reason why many older QLD buildings contain fibre is that their use was quite common between the 1940s and 1980s when the production was eventually stopped following the ban on their use. It can be a hazard to health and for this reasons its use has declined considerably in recent years.

2. Fibre can easily be inhaled

ACM has a carcinogenic effect, a factor which has led to its phasing out over the past 60 years as a preferred building material. Moreover, due to its fine fibres, ACM can easily float in the air for a very long time and this is why it poses a serious risk to many users. These fine fibres are invisible and can easily be breathed into the lungs without anyone even realising it.

Less than half of Queenslanders diagnosed with mesothelioma will survive more than a year after diagnosis. – Katie Cliff, Cancer council Queensland spokesperson

Unfortunately for most people who breathe in a lot of fibres, the body does not have a mechanism for removing particles that travel deep into the body tissues. The particles will, therefore, remains in your body for the rest of your life. This will cause a variety of asbestos-related diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, intestinal tract’s cancer and pleural plaques.

3. You could be at risk from fibre exposure

People who are most at risk are those who are exposed in their place of work. Some fields where the risk of exposure to ACM is at its highest include the following:

  • Workers involved in the mining or the milling of fibrous material
  • People involved in the making or repairs of goods where raw materials used include fibres. These include goods such as brake linings.
  • People who use products that may contain fibre. These are particular common industries such as power stations, plumbing, boiler making, heating and building and construction amongst others.
  • Asbestos removal Gold Coast contractors are also at a great risk of exposure to the harmful fibres. These are generally the people who are involved in various activities related to fibre cleanup such as demolitions, repair or even alteration of buildings that contain fibre.
  • You do not need to have extended exposure in order to be afflicted by asbestos-related conditions such as mesothelioma. There are people who have contracted condition after only a brief exposure such as washing ACM dusted clothing, for example.

When you believe that ACMs exist on your property, seek help and advice from a professional contractor immediately. It’s mandatory to hire a licensed removal expert to remove friable and non-friable ACM in an area that exceeds 10 m2.  Moreover, The local City Council recommends hiring a licensed removal specialist to conduct removal work regardless of the amount of ACMs in your building.
