The importance of asbestos removal in Brisbane
Many of us these days may take for granted that we use safe building materials and adhere to safety standards. But up until quite recently, asbestos, a toxic fibre, was used in many building materials. So we need to keep this in mind as we work on existing buildings that may have been built in the time when asbestos was still commonly used.
Let it be?
Thankfully, asbestos is not harmful if it is left undisturbed. The harmful particles are only dangerous if they are breathed in through the air. So if you know you have asbestos in your roof or walls, why bother replacing it?
It is definitely best to have asbestos removed if you are planning to do any home renovations or upgrades. You need to be completely protected from breathing in the asbestos fibres. For your peace of mind, we recommend getting the professionals in to do the job.
Apart from actually removing the pieces of asbestos, you will then need to safely dispose of it. Due to its potentially harmful effects, you can’t simply throw asbestos in the rubbish. In fact, it is illegal to throw out asbestos in a landfill site that is not legally approved.
For all these reasons, and more, we recommend getting in professionals like the team at Zen Roofing to get the job done. We will quickly and safely remove any asbestos products from your home, leaving you to get those renovations done with peace of mind.
