Asbestos Inspection Services in Scarborough
If you’re planning to buy a property or renovate your existing property, it makes sense to have it checked out thoroughly for structural defects before you go ahead. And if the property was built prior to 1990, it makes even more sense to request an asbestos inspection for your Scarborough property from experts such as the inspectors found at Jim’s Building Inspections Perth.
What Are the Dangers of Asbestos in The Home?
Although asbestos was banned as a building material in 1989, it is still best practice to have every property constructed before 2003 tested for asbestos before making a purchase. Asbestos was once a common construction material that could be used in almost anything, most often found in walls and ceiling panels, but we now realize that asbestos fibres are extremely toxic and harmful to health. Once in your body, you can’t expel them and so they remain lodged, commonly in the soft, delicate tissues of your lungs. Once there, they can cause a variety of respiratory illnesses, including a variety of cancers.
Asbestos is safe when it’s present in a building; however, should it be disturbed, this is when the problems start unfolding. If you have any renovations planned and you uncover asbestos that you didn’t know was there, not only are you exposed to the material, but it can also make your renovations incredibly expensive as you will need a qualified professional to remove the substance from your home.
Why Should You Trust Jim’s Building Inspections?
You can trust us to be transparent about whatever we find when inspecting your property because we don’t work for building developers or estate agents. In fact, we’re a franchisee so our reputation for being unbiased is incredibly important to us. We can assist you with the purchase of a new build property by conducting checks to ensure that everything is in working order before making progress payments, saving you time and money in the long run and if you’re buying an existing home, we will check it before you purchase to make sure there are no structural flaws, maintenance issues, or pest control problems like termite infestations. Whatever we find, we can also recommend a Jim’s registered builder to help you fix the problem or ensure that they are corrected before you make your purchase.
