Be aware of your asbestos risk

By James Brown

Being safe and secure at your property in Morayfield is essential, which means being aware of some of the risks you might face in your local area.

Last week (28 November) marked National Asbestos Awareness Day, an event designed to highlight the dangers of this harmful substance.

"Although asbestos was banned in Australia from 2004 it remains in our community and is likely to be found in one form or another in many homes and other buildings built before 1990," said the City of Moreton Bay's acting mayor Mike Charlton.

If you're thinking of doing maintenance work on your properties then you will need to be aware of the potential problems you could encounter when drilling, sanding or cutting materials.

This is why it's a good idea to get an expert in to do the job on your behalf – they will be able to identify the material and take whatever steps necessary to make it safe again.

The Asbestos Education Committee warns that buildings constructed before 1990 are most at risk, with old floor coverings and areas behind tiles among the most vulnerable places.

Enlisting the services of a certified asbestos inspector is a good idea if renovations are on the cards for your property.
