Asbestos was officially banned in Australia on the 31st of December 2003. However many stopped using asbestos in building homes in the late 1980s. If your home was built or renovated before 1990 in Australia, there may be asbestos present in the structure. Some commercial buildings were still being built with asbestos-containing material until 2003.

If you do believe asbestos is present in your home the first step is to get an asbestos inspection and testing. It’s important not to touch the asbestos, as it only becomes a risk when it is disturbed and the fibres or dust are released.

Asbestos was once a ground-breaking discovery for the building industry. Asbestos has great properties suitable for building: it is durable, insulating and fire-resistant. It wasn’t until after the material had been widely used in construction that its harmful effects on human health were discovered and the substance was banned.
