Don’t Do DIY Gamble!

Asbestos sucks more than stubbing your toe! This sneaky materials fibres are impossible to see by the naked eye, is one of the most heat-resistant substances known to man, and causes cancer related diseases in the lungs such as mesothelioma. What a nightmare!

So what can you do to keep yourself and your loved ones free from exposure? Brushing up on your knowledge couldn’t hurt could it?

If your home was built or renovated before 1983, then there is a high chance that materials were used containing these fibrous crystals, such as wall sheeting, roof sheeting, carpet underlay, floor vinyl, soffits and the list goes on.

It is advised that NO DIY IS TO BE PERFORMED IF YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE MIGHT BE MATERIALS IN YOUR WORKS THAT COULD CONTAIN ASBESTOS.
