Asbestos Elements Safety


Asbestos is considered to be a safety hazard / product found in buildings constructed prior to 1990. The most common building element containing asbestos is Fibre Cement Sheeting which can be located in external cladding, soffits, in pipework and surrounds, internal sheeting in older homes and wet areas like bathrooms and laundries. It is essential to seek specialist advice before disturbing building elements that may contain asbestos. Exposed sections of sheeting should be encapsulated to prevent detachment of fibres into the air and inside and around your property. Coastal Home & Building Inspections Sunshine Coast acknowledges the requirements of the Building Inspection Standard to identify Safety Hazards and informs clients where exposed asbestos elements are evident on properties. If found it is essential to seek specialist advice particularly if the home is to be renovated. Information on services and sample reports can be found at www.buildinginspectionsunshinecoast.com
