The Safe Way of Asbestos Removal in Perth
Asbestos is found in many older buildings in Perth and it can be very harmful to your health. However, while it is vital to have it removed, it is also extremely dangerous when disturbed. Because of this, asbestos removal requires a licensed professional who knows how to handle, positively identify and help you manage the hazards that it can present.
Asbestos is harmful when inhaled and can lead to:
- Lung cancer
- Mesothelioma - cancer of the chest membranes
- Asbestosis - inflammation affecting the lungs
What to Do If You Identify Asbestos
If you have or suspect you have asbestos in your home, don’t panic. The important thing to do is avoid contact with the asbestos. Do not step on, touch, or move asbestos roofing materials.
It’s critically important to comply with all statutory requirements regarding the removal of asbestos. By law, you must report the presence of asbestos to your local council. Asbestos removal must be carried out by licensed removal professionals. Do NOT attempt to remove the asbestos yourself.
