Residential Asbestos Inspection and Analysis
Asbestos containing materials were used in many common areas of past residential construction. Manufacturing of asbestos in Australia was ceased in 1982; however, a huge surplus of asbestos was available and continued to be used in construction for years to follow.
It is of great concern that many new asbestos related diseases are becoming apparent in people who have been involved in their own home renovations. If asbestos is damaged or broken, fibres are released into the air that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Breathing in only one asbestos fibre can cause a range of fatal asbestos related diseases.
Building Inspections Australia inspects and identifies asbestos in residential buildings on the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, Melbourne metro and the greater surrounds.
During an asbestos inspection, BIA will take photos, record the amount, assess the condition and give advice on the danger levels of the asbestos. A report is then compiled for the home owner to keep on record and recommendations are made for action to keep the home safe. We strongly recommend an Asbestos inspection prior to any alterations of renovations at your property.
