Asbestos abatement is the process of treating and/or removing this dangerous substance from someone’s home so that it is safe for the occupants to live there. You may be wondering why such a dangerous and life-threatening substance can be found in most Australian homes; and the reason is because it once was one of the most revolutionary building materials ever discovered, and as such, hundreds of thousands of homes were built using asbestos without the people knowing about its dangerous nature.
If you live in an old home, and you suspect, or if you are perfectly sure that there are some parts of the structure that contains asbestos, then asbestos abatement is your only choice. And, the only way that you can do this without endangering your health or of those who are around you is to hire a professional company to do it for you.
Why Is It A Bad Idea To DIY Asbestos Treatment?
As mentioned earlier, asbestos is a very hazardous material. If you get the tiny fibers that they release inside your lungs, they will stay lodged in there because they are too big to expel the natural way. Those asbestos fibers will stay in your lungs for many years, and during that time they will cause the growth of tumors, most of the time they will lead to lung cancer or mesothalioma (a type of cancer attributed to asbestos exposure) of which only a handful were able to fully recover.
Besides putting your life in danger, it is also quite illegal for regular homeowners to handle asbestos; you actually need a government-issued license to undergo asbestos removal and disposal.
Hiring the Experts
If you truly want your home to be completely safe, then a professional asbestos abatement company is your only choice. One of the great things about hiring professionals to get rid of the asbestos in your home is that they first send in an inspector to determine whether or not your home actually does contain asbestos or not. The inspector can also pinpoint where exactly in your home the asbestos is found and will recommend what kind of action need you need to take.
And speaking of abatement options, if the asbestos in your home is still in good condition, meaning it will not be sending out harmful fibers any time soon, you can choose to have it encapsulated. This process basically involves applying a special kind of adhesive on the asbestos-containing material which prevents it from deteriorating and basically eliminates any threat of asbestos exposure. This is not just a cheaper method of abatement, it will also prevent unnecessary damage to your house.
