Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How Can I identify asbestos?
Visually, asbestos looks like fibrous cement with only subtle design differences which may be difficult for you to notice. A person with experience however can do this very easily. To determine if it is asbestos, consider when the house was built. Any part that currently uses fibre cement was made with asbestos in the period before 1985. So if your house was constructed before then the bathrooms, carport ceilings, kitchens and other parts may have asbestos.
Q: Can I Remove asbestos myself?
No. This is a bad idea because asbestos is a very dangerous material. The fibres are airborne and you may not have the necessary safety materials to handle the work. It is best left to professionals to avoid diseases like lung disease, asbestosis and pleural plaque. These have all the necessary materials and experience to do the work safely.
