The dangers have been well known for decades, but asbestos still threatens the health of people throughout Queensland and Australia. That is especially true for those who undertake — the removal of asbestos materials themselves, as a new RiverCity Asbestos Removals report at http://rivercityasbestos.com.au/ makes clear. By spreading awareness as to the issues surrounding the once-ubiquitous building material, RiverCity Asbestos Removal experts will help make homes and businesses throughout Brisbane safer for all.
"The public has been aware of the dangers posed by asbestos for so long now that a feeling of complacency sometimes sets in," RiverCity Asbestos Removals owner Linda Filmer said, "The fact is, though, that exposure to asbestos fibers is never safe, and amateurs who try to remove the material will invariably subject themselves and others to these hazards. There is no cure for mesothelioma, the deadliest of the several asbestos-related diseases, and diagnosis rates are still rising. We therefore encourage all to come read our new online report detailing why removing asbestos yourself remains a very bad idea in 2016."
Asbestos is a family of minerals that naturally form into distinctive, compact fibers, and which have been extensively used as building materials around the world for well over a hundred years. By the 1980s, Australia ranked as one of the top global users of the substance on a per-capita basis, with construction professionals prizing the material's fire resistance, insulating ability, structural strength, and other traits.
Unfortunately, asbestos also contributes to several serious diseases, with exposure to airborne fibers potentially leading to anything from permanent scarring of lung tissue to the untreatable cancer mesothelioma. Even though usage has been banned for decades, around one-third of all homes standing in Australia today contain asbestos, with the rate being highest among those built before 1985.
As the new RiverCity Asbestos Removals report points out, dealing with asbestos is always something best left to professionals. Any exposure to asbestos fibers can be harmful, and sophisticated, intensive means must be employed to ensure that a removal project does not result in the spread of these potentially deadly hazards.
