Bonded & Friable ACM

It is important for property owners to check the presence of fibrous materials in their properties. Better yet, it is safer to assume that you have fibre substances in your house. If there are ACM products in your house, you also need to check their conditions regularly. Now, let’s check an example of an asbestos case.

Bathroom Danger: Don’t Let Yourself Sink in Asbestos!

We all have some sort of dream house ideas to build; completed with the desired interiors. Since creating a comfortable environment in our house is such a satisfying accomplishment. It will help us reunite with our family better at the end of the day after buzzing in the busy world.

While each room plays its parts, a bathroom is also considered as one of the most important rooms in our house. This is why people want to make it comfortable and relaxing.

But, do you know that there are a lot of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the bathroom? In the bathroom, ACMs usually can be found as fibrous cement sheeting in walls, floors, ceilings, and hot water pipes. Other famous products such as “Tilux”, “Versilux” and “Villaboard” were commonly used in Australian homes as wet-area sheeting. These hazardous products were popular and extensively used in Australia before the 1980s.

Now, their production and distribution were strictly prohibited since 2003. However, The Australian Government’s Department of Health and Ageing released a list of ACM products that can still be found in old bathrooms, such as:

  • Tilux
  • Versilux
  • Villaboard
  • Pressure Pipe
  • Drain Pipe
  • Coverline
  • Roofing Accessories
  • Shadowline
  • Highline
  • Super Six
  • Compressed
  • Harditherm
  • Hardiplank
  • Hardiflex

These hazardous objects are relatively easy to recognize. Nevertheless, there are also many other things that are more difficult to recognize hiding as wall tiles and backing for floor. So, make yourself sure that your bathrooms are free from ACM products.

Removal, Testing and Management of Asbestos in Rockhampton

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

Why? Because these harmful products might become friable due to deterioration or any other damages including breaking, cutting, drilling and sanding them. It’s dangerous to get exposed directly to fibrous materials. Asbestos removal and testing is the only way to keep you safe from hazardous materials. Therefore, the whole asbestos removal and testing process need to be done by a professional removalist.

Careless handling of ACMs can lead to criminal charges and penalties. Especially, when it comes to fibrous materials disposal. The government also prohibits the use of DIY kits to handle such jobs. That’s why it’s important to get help from professional contractors – like the ones at Asbestos Watch Rockhampton.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

Asbestos may be found in products like floor tiles, cement, roof shingles, and insulations. Damaged materials can release fibres into the air and make it airborne. When being inhaled, fibres can lodged in the lungs and become tumor.

Chest x-rays can detect early signs of certain lung diseases. Lung function tests and high resolution CT scans can also detect changes in the lungs caused by asbestos.

You should take precautions if you live or work near asbestos material. The bonded asbestos products may not be too dangerous, but friable asbestos may easily becomes airborne. We encourage you to hire a professional consultant to perform risk assessment when you found asbestos in your building.

You should prepare an asbestos register before calling an asbestos removalist. The document will help the removalist to make an asbestos management plan. A management plan usually includes risk assessments and control measures to manage ACM within your premises.

Unless a material is labeled, it is difficult to determine whether it contains asbestos or not. If you are unsure, ask a qualified contractor to analyse it. An expert will do a sample collection and test it in a certified laboratory.
