Many building products contain ACM, short for asbestos containing materials. You need to have an expert determine if you have asbestos. In some cases, an expert can send the material off to have it tested.
Areas where the material may be found includes:
Other areas include the following: gable end sheeting,hardiplank, wall cladding, imitation brick cladding and insulation.
Roof guttering, roof capping and sheeting, shed linings and car ports are more areas where the material can be found.
Any ACM is hazardous. That being said, there are two categories of ACM. One is bonded and the other is non-bonded.
Out of the two, it's bonded ACM that is less dangerous to work with. In order to reduce its effects, it's a good idea to not disturb it. However, this isn't the case when transporting it or moving it.
Bonded ACM is ACM with cement or another form of high bonding matrix. There are few risks involved when working with bonded ACM and this is because of its stability. Nonetheless, the fibre can become dangerous to people when it is disturbed, which can happen if the material becomes damaged. As long as the material is not damaged or interfered with, then nobody should be affected.
This is very dangerous because the material has loosely packed fibers. The material can easily be crushed and damaged. In turn, the fibres can easily spread via the air, which is when they can become very harmful to people.
Non-bonded jobs require an abundance of caution. In fact, only a professional should do it. Regulation and professional licensing differ from state to state.
When you are assessing your house for asbestos removal Lower Portland, there are a few things you should look out for.
Storms can cause a lot of damage to properties. ACM products such as cement and roofs can become damaged during a storm. It's wise to call a professional if there's been a storm that has caused damaged to your property.
Roofs often release fibres as a result of surface weathering. When disturbed, asbestos materials can release fibres that are harmful. This can happen during roof repairs or when gutters are being removed. It's a good idea to have the roof sealed before it is worked on, that way risks are reduced.
Fire can cause a lot of damage to the property, especially to a property's walls. This is why fire is a major reason why asbestos fibres get into the area. If a fire has occurred at your property, then contact a professional to inspect it for asbestos.
Your walls and home is protected from water damage, partly due to the downpipes and the gutters. If your gutters are in poor condition, then it's time to repair them. The same goes for your downpipes. If you can't make the repairs on your own or you don't know how to do it properly, then call a professional to do it for you.
Coating & Painting
Many fibro walls can and have been painted. This is because painting them poses virtually no risk of fibres from spreading into the area. In fact, painting isn't really a major issue at all. So, feel free to paint whenever you want. However, the issue arises if you want to sand the surface that you will paint or coat. Sanding surfaces such as walls can increase the chances of disturbing fibres. In turn, those fibres can spread into the air, where it can be harmful for people in the area.
