The Unseen Danger of Asbestos
One of the most common asbestos materials to come across when doing renovations in older buildings is probably fibrous cement sheeting. The most likely form of asbestos cement to come upon is flat sheet fibro, often used for outside cladding of homes, garages, and sheds.
You can find asbestos sheeting in various areas within your house such as in:
These sheeting were used extensively since the 1950s and still being used today, albeit in non-asbestos form. Asbestos sheeting has unique features that other materials don’t have. Therefore, it came in handy when solving most construction material design issues.
Asbestos materials that initially worked like magic in different building applications later became the cause of the deadliest ailments in Australia. Inhaling airborne asbestos fibres leads to lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma or pleural. Residents who inhaled even the tiniest single piece of asbestos fibres are at risk of going down with life-threatening diseases.
Those who dare to drill, saw, grind or sand any of their housing material that contains traces of asbestos become highly exposed to airborne asbestos fibres, and this eventually lead to their death.
This is why you should hire experts to perform asbestos removal and testing in your building. Only experienced professionals can tell whether asbestos in your home has started to crumble and flake, afterwards remove it safely and completely.

You are mistaken if you think that asbestos is problem of the past. The shocking part about the material in Australia today is the fact that asbestos-containing materials are still present in two-thirds of Australian houses.
If your house was built before the mid-1980s, you might be the potential victim of this asbestos material. It is reported that the annual number of new cases of mesothelioma in Australia increased from 156 in 1982 to a peak of 667 in 2010 (via safe work). The newest data shows that asbestosis was the underlying cause of 125 deaths in 2011.
However, do not panic when you found asbestos materials in your building! As long as they remain intact and left undisturbed, you are safe.
