Where can Asbestos be Found?
Asbestos is most likely to be found in buildings that were constructed before the mid-1980s. It can be found in the following locations;
- Textured ceilings
- Ceiling tiles
- Cement board/fibrous cement cladding
- Decramastic type roofing tiles
- Plaster and plaster cornice
- Lagging for insulation around pipes, heaters & hot water cylinders
- Backing material for floor tiles & vinyl sheets
The only way to be certain if building material contains asbestos is to have a sample analysed. If you are completing renovations to your home and are disturbing any of the above areas, it is recommended that sampling is completed before work starts.
