Are You Looking for An Asbestos Testing Service in Kingsley?
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 and meets all building codes and regulations. However, did you know that most building inspectors don’t look below the surface of the building materials? If the property was built before 2003, it may contain asbestos. This is something that will not be picked up in a structural inspection.
Most building inspectors identify the big problems, such as structural weaknesses and maintenance issues. By choosing an inspection by a certified asbestos inspector in Kingsley, you can rest assured that they will dig deeper into their inspections and ensure that any harmful substances like asbestos are not present in your home before you move in.
Of course, if these substances are present, it doesn’t mean that you can’t buy the house, but it does mean that you may be able to negotiate a lower price for the property before signing the contract or can insist that the substance is removed before going further.
What Are the Dangers of Asbestos?
While asbestos has been banned in construction since 1989, your home may still contain asbestos in its materials if it was built before 2003 which is why hiring an expert is such a critical part of purchasing your home.
Asbestos has been linked to several dangerous and even deadly, untreatable diseases since it was realised that it was a hazardous chemical. Whilst it is harmless in situ, should the material it is within become damaged and release the fibres into the air they can become trapped in your body. The dangers of asbestos are unique in that they cannot be extracted, and your body is unable to expel them. Therefore, once they enter your lungs or your digestive tract, they will remain there. The younger you are when exposed to asbestos, the more chance the fibres have to do irreparable damage.
If you come across asbestos in your home, do not attempt to remove it yourself. Contact a professional such as Jim’s Building Inspections Perth to deal with it for you. We will carry out a thorough inspection and have the results for you within 24 hours!
