Leave it to the experts
With so many people having stayed at home during the Covid-19 Pandemic, a lot of renovations have taken place. The Asbestosis and Mesothelioma Association of Australia (AMAA) has been reminding people to always get an expert to identify and remove asbestos anywhere in the home.
If a house was built or renovated before 1990 it has a good chance of containing asbestos. Asbestos can be found in many places around homes – including bathrooms, under flooring and even in the fuse box!
Just like plumbing and electrical work, asbestos removal – or jobs around the home that might uncover asbestos – are jobs best left to the experts.
Investigate before you renovate.
