Before you begin a renovation, please follow these three simple steps.
- Think ahead: Australia has one of the highest rates of asbestos-related diseases in the world, including cancer. So, if the home you are working on was built before 1990, remember that asbestos might be found. It was used in over 3000 building products.
- Plan ahead: Asbestos is dangerous when disturbed, so you shouldn’t remove asbestos yourself. Making a contingency plan in case asbestos is found will avoid delays and cost blow outs.
- Get a licensed asbestos professional: They will provide advice on how to protect everyone’s health and help you proceed safely.
