What is asbestos?

Asbestos is used to describe fibrous natural minerals that were used as part of the construction industry. It is a durable, affordable, and fire-resistant material, and it’s these qualities that made it an ideal choice for use in the construction industry. Since it was widely used for many building sites, a property owner of an older building has to be more careful. Site assessments and analysis is needed to ensure that any dangerous asbestos containing material (ACM) is removed from the property.

Dealing With Asbestos Pipe Lagging Melbourne

One of the main uses of ACMs was as insulation for houses and lagging material. Many of the older heating systems were surrounded by asbestos lagging. The asbestos in the lagging was used to protect the pipes and insulate it from environmental conditions.

This type of ACM happens to be one of the most dangerous because it flakes off easily. Since asbestos is a fibrous material, it is dangerous when these tiny particles are airborne and inhaled into the lungs. If you breathe in these miniscule particles of fiber, it can become lodged in your lung tissue and cause inflammation and scarring. Over time, it will lead to chronic health conditions like COPD, asbestosis, and pleural effusions.
