Many people have worries about asbestos, but undisturbed, asbestos usually poses no problems. However, care should be taken to prevent the release of fibres as they can cause serious damage to your health.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used in a range of building materials to make them more rigid and fire resistant. Asbestos was used extensively as a building material from the 1950s through to the mid 1980s.
Some of areas in your property where you may find asbestos include:
Asbestos fibres are present in the environment so people are exposed to very low levels of fibres. However, a key factor in the risk of developing an asbestos-related disease is the total number of fibres breathed in. Working on or near damaged asbestos-containing materials or breathing in high levels of asbestos fibres, which may be many hundreds of times that of environmental levels can increase your chances of getting an asbestos-related disease. The symptoms of these diseases often do not appear for 20 - 30 years after exposure to asbestos.
