Where Will You Find Asbestos?
Asbestos was particularly popular and commonly used in Australia, because of the mining of it here and companies like James Hardies Industries and CSR Limited. You will find it in many pre-1990 construction materials. These may be fireproofing coatings on structural steel. It may be in your floor and ceiling tiles. Sidings and cement wallboard, Hardiplank wall cladding, roofing sheets, capping and guttering, curtains, doors, insulation, ductwork, caulking, plasters, joint compounds, drain trap surround cuffs, telecommunication pits, and shed linings, may all contain the material. There are in excess of 3 000 known asbestos containing products. The Demolition Blokes can provide professional testing in Blanchetown, Morgan, Murtho, Cadell, Barmera, Glossop, Ramco, and throughout the Riverland. It is wise to get an expert inspection before taking any action, be safe rather than sorry.

Why is asbestos dangerous to human health? It has been around for thousands of years; being used to insulate and resist fire in construction. It is a fibrous silicate material; and it is these fibres which are so dangerous to human health. People can inhale the fibres and they become lodged in the lungs, causing many forms of lung cancer and mesothelioma. It is a sad fact that human beings have been dying from contact with the friable material for millennia. It all began being phased out of the domestic building industry in Australia in the 1980s. On the 31st December 2003, all products containing it were banned throughout Australia. It is now illegal to use, reuse, supply, import, store or sell materials containing the dangerous elements. The Demolition Blokes can remove and decontaminate your site or building of all dangerous asbestos materials.
All of our decontamination technicians are trained and certified to test, inspect, remove and clean up your site. We will ensure that your Riverland property is free of asbestos. Demolition Blokes wear P2 masks throughout the testing and disposal processes. Full protective gear covering all exposed skin is worn from start to finish. Exposed suspect materials are wetted down to prevent airborne distribution of potentially dangerous fibres. Friable asbestos can pose serious health risks to those around the material, and Work Health Safety regulations govern how it may be removed in South Australia.
These terms are used to describe the manufactured state of the asbestos containing material. Friable is the more hazardous state, where the material can be crumbled or powdered by simple hand pressure. It may be rendered friable by age, damage or mechanical force. Friable can become airborne, which is highly dangerous to the health of human beings in the immediate vicinity.
Non-friable is characterised by its bonded state, where the fibres are bound by cement, resin, or some other fixative. The removal of more than 10 square metres of non-friable must be carried out by a licenced restricted remover. The Demolition Blokes have a full unrestricted asbestos removal licence.
The Demolition Blokes are your Riverland asbestos decontamination service. South Australia is particularly prone to extreme heat and dry conditions in the summer months, which can result in house and bush fires. We can assist you with the safe clean-up of fire ash following bush fires. Older buildings damaged and burnt out by fire may contain the material and other toxic synthetic materials. Our expertise in burnt material removal can help you avoid the serious health hazard these dangerous situations can present. State regulations govern how the burnt material must be removed from affected properties. Call now to make an appointment or to find out more.
The Demolition Blokes can assist you with Asbestos Material Registers for your business or property. Legal requirements in South Australia, now, make it compulsory to register your material and any work carried out on the site. We provide comprehensive registers offering schematic site plans for easy navigation. Worksheets are attached for completion when relevant work has been carried out. We can, also, provide NIL Registers, Clearance Certificates, and Condition Reports.
Strict codes of compliance are in place governing the disturbance or removal of asbestos in SA. At the Demolition Blokes, Air Monitoring, during remediation of sites, is carried out by certified independent contractors and tested in NATA accredited labs. Our removal work complies with all government codes of practice and health and safety acts. Talk to one of our expert representatives today to discuss your particular requirements. You can, also, peruse the Code of Practice; How to manage and control it in the workplace and the Work Health Safety Act, 2012.
