Why you need a professional contractor to perform asbestos testing in Brisbane

Our contractors are asked on a daily basis why they need to test for fibrous materials. It comes to us that most property owners do not realize how common these materials were used in the past. Even though the use of ACMs was banned since 2003, it may still be present in many area and location in your building.

It’s hard to determine whether any material used for constructions has fibrous materials or not by simply looking at it. Some people find dust and quick to conclude that they are asbestos. That is not the way to go even though the majority of buildings built before the mid-1980s are likely to contain fibrous materials. You can check the presence of fibrous materials in your asbestos register or management plan. Otherwise, the only safe and sure way to ascertain whether they contain fibre is by getting a professional to test them.

There are several reasons why you need to do asbestos testing Brisbane procedure as follows:

A suspected material that may be an ACM is damaged

Damage and deterioration will increase the friability of fibrous materials. Aging, continual vibration, water damage, and physical impact such as grinding, cutting, sawing, or drilling can break the materials down making fibre release more likely.  When a structure containing fibrous materials began to crumble and break down, it can release harmful fibres and makes them go airborne.

Inhaled fibres may become trapped in the mucous membranes of the throat or pass deep into the lungs. Once they are trapped in our body, the fibres can cause health problems. This process is irreversible; that’s why you need to take extra precautions when suspecting a damaged ACM in your house or workplace.

There are numerous risks associated with performing testing with DIY kits. Thus,seek advice from a professional contractor to identify the condition of ACM and get it removed when necessary.

Natural incidents, such as storm and bushfires, happen

Aside from deterioration over time, another cause for fibre concern can be a building or structure catching on fire and also, if there has been any kind of severe flood damage. With parts of Australia already experiencing serious storms and bushfires, the government agency is warning home and building owners to be aware of the dangers of disturbed ACMs after a natural disaster.

It is important that people in the affected locations knew what to do in the event their business or home became damaged by a natural disaster. With two-thirds of homes in Australia today contain fibrous materials, the risk of exposure to airborne fibres after a natural disaster can be very high.

When you need to do a renovation or demolition project

Any remodeling job involving cutting through cement sheeting walls or ceilings containing ACM, requires a work permit from the authority. Even if you were told that your building does not contain fibrous materials, the local law mandates an assessment to verify that no ACM is present in a building that will be demolished. For buildings in Brisbane, a surveyor or an assessor certified by both the national and city authority must perform testing or sampling process.

Fibrous material is in no way something you want to take lightly if there are signs of damage or rotting to older buildings. It’s best to get it checked out by a professional, and if there is a sign of fibre, get it removed immediately by those qualified to do so, such as A-class licensed removalists.
