Breathe Easy Asbestos Removal and Demolition has over a decade in the industry and now offers our services for residential, industrial and commercial clients in Mackay. Asbestos was at the cutting edge of fire protection for building in the early to mid-20th centuries to as late as the 1980s when its potential as a health hazard became well known. It is most dangerous when disturbed, and this makes hiring an experienced and competent company to remove it is the best way to ensure that it is done safely.

Tips Regarding Mackay Asbestos Removal

Asbestos was considered almost miraculous when people first discovered its remarkable fire-resistant qualities, but it wasn’t until the industrial age when its use became widespread as an important fire retardant in building supplies. Soon after, the detrimental effects it can have on the lungs and other parts of the body began to show in asbestos mining towns, and by 1980 its use in construction had been phased out in Australia. Here are a few essential tips to remember regarding asbestos:

  • In Australia, asbestos had been popular in construction from 1946 to 1980. If you have a building that was built or renovated during those years, getting an asbestos check before you perform any renovation is the best option.
  • Most asbestos in buildings is known as bonded, meaning that the fibres have been bonded with other material such as drywall or concrete. When this is undisturbed, it is generally safe, but once the bonded material is cracked or broken, the asbestos fibres can become airborne.
  • Don’t deal with asbestos yourself. It is an extremely hazardous material, and the only way to ensure that all the dangerous fibres have been completely removed is to hire an experienced company like ours.
