Asbestos Inspection In Sydney

By Kieran White on September 13, 2012

In the past, asbestos was widely used in all manner of construction materials, ranging from a cement additive, to a key ingredient in fireproofing sprays and coatings, to insulation, even for shingles and building siding. This set of six different silicate minerals has some very beneficial characteristics, such as high resistance to heat, chemical and electrical damage, superb soundproofing qualities, and its crystalline fibre make-up could lend strength to many materials. Now that we know it's a dangerous long-term health hazard, though, dealing with buildings where it was used can be a pain. A thorough asbestos inspection in Sydney will be required before remodelling, or destroying, an older building to make sure it's safe.

Now, if you're just going to demolish a building anyway, or tear out and throw away a bunch of the interior, you may be wondering why you'd need to bother with an inspection in the first place. After all, it's all going to end up disposed of or recycled anyway, right? Well, the problem with asbestos is that it doesn't become an issue until the materials it's present in are harmed or degraded. This allows the asbestos fibres to get into the air, which then allows us to breathe them in, and once they get into our lungs, the damage it causes is already beginning.

That's why an asbestos inspection in Sydney is so important. Materials containing asbestos need to be located, tested, and flagged for removal before they can be removed, and this stuff needs to be taken care of by professionals, long before the work crews start on the project. To make sure the work environment is safe, all surveying, inspections, and removal needs to be done well before the first hammer even swings, otherwise you're just inviting a whole host of unpleasantness in the future. The worst part is that you won't even know how badly you've been exposed until a couple decades down the road, and by that time it's far too late to do anything about it.

It's relatively easy to safeguard yourself, and your workers, against this threat. Simply arrange for an asbestos inspection in Sydney before you start the job, and based on their findings, you can either get started right away, or you'll need to arrange for removal of the dangerous materials. The entire process won't take a huge amount of time, and the safety it provides is well worth any inconvenience, after all.
