Is There Asbestos In My New Home?

When embarking on the exciting process of purchasing a home or sourcing a rental property, you likely have a lengthy list of questions, and a mental checklist of desirable features. Once you’ve settled on the right space for yourself or your family, it may seem that all is well - but what if you have doubts about the presence of asbestos? Especially prominent within particular property types, let Evans Asbestos Ltd take you through the process of identifying and dealing with this harmful substance, with tips and guidance.

What Is Asbestos

In general terms, asbestos is the given name of several naturally occurring fibrous minerals, each of which have crystallised to form potentially harmful fibres. In the past, not much was known about these fibres, and as such, their properties made them an ideal material for use in insulation materials, boilers and pipes among other features. In the modern day, we’ve found that all forms of asbestos fibre are hazardous, and can induce cancer among a range of other nasty health defects and dangers.

Identifying Possible Danger

Identifying dangers if you’re uninitiated with the hazards of asbestos may be easier said than done. As mentioned, until the 1970s, many types of building products and insulation materials used in homes contained asbestos, and this went under the radar. If you haven’t had an asbestos survey carried out, and your home was constructed many decades ago, it often pays to have a survey carried out for that peace of mind. In a personal sense, early signs of asbestos exposure include vague symptoms such as coughing or shortness of breath.
