Why You Might Need an Asbestos Inspection in Coogee
Asbestos is a hazardous chemical that has been commonly used in a wide variety of building materials as it was previously believed to be safe. However, once it was found to be linked to several respiratory illnesses and cancers, it became a prohibited substance in 1989. It is no longer allowed to be used in building or construction works.
It’s still a safe substance as long as the asbestos is not broken or disturbed, however, most homeowners at some point will do renovations or simply have to carry out maintenance work on their home. If you aren’t aware that asbestos is present, you may disturb it and release tiny, microscopic fibres into the air. Asbestos should never be disturbed without the correct training and you must wear the correct PPE.
How to Find A Certified Asbestos Inspector in Coogee
If you’re looking to buy a new home, you will almost certainly have looked for a building inspector to ensure that the property you’re interested in hasn’t got structural weaknesses. However, did you know that most building inspectors don’t look below the surface? Although asbestos has been prohibited from use in construction since 1989 if your home was constructed before 2003, it may still have asbestos within the materials. Jim’s Building Inspections can provide an efficient asbestos testing service in Coogee which will pick up asbestos hidden inside other building materials.
If you hire an inspector recommended by the estate agent, they may not identify the presence of asbestos either because they don’t have the technical expertise to spot it. Our inspectors are not biased by property sales as we are hired by you which means if we find anything, we have everything to lose by not bringing it to your attention. We pride ourselves on our excellent reputation and with 130 registered experts in our team, you can be sure that there’s no issue we can’t spot and rectify on your behalf.
Having knowledge of things like building faults and the presence of harmful chemicals such as asbestos puts the power back into your hands. You can either halt the sale until remedial work is undertaken at which point, we can re-inspect the work, or negotiate a fairer price for the property now you are fully informed of its true condition.
The decision to get your dream home inspected before you buy, is one of the best decisions you can make, to reduce the risk of inheriting structural damage, termites or even asbestos – which could cost you THOUSANDS to fix.
