Watch Out for Asbestos on Your Property!

The increase of asbestos cases in Australia raises the awareness of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in property sectors. According to the NSW Government, there are over 5300 homes estimated with the harmful ACM insulation. The government takes fibre issues seriously. In June 2014, the ACT Government stressed the dangers of ACM not only to property owners but also to real estate agents. The government stated that all parties who are involved in the trading estate are obliged to act clean, fairly, honestly, and professionally in handling the selling.

The real estate agents are required to make disclosure of ACMs existence in the property for sale.

The value of properties with fibrous materials is 10% to 30% lower than comparable properties without ACMs. Therefore, there are still plenty of sellers who cover the presence of fibrous materials in the building market. The ACT Government overcame this situation by emphasizing that the real estate agents must first identify the presence of fibres in buildings before it could be sold on the property market.

All of the property market agents are encouraged to have an initial inspection to identify the presence of ACM in your property, such as:

  • Inquire any renovation dates
  • The awareness of fibres presence by the client/vendor
  • Obtain ACMs assessment report of the building
  • Recognition on any fibre removal programs executed in the building

Ask Yourself: Do you Have ACM Products in Your Place?

Get to know your property better! When was it built? What kind of products the property was made of? If there is any fibre product within your building, how is the condition of it? These questions need to be converted into actions immediately.

How to find out fibre existence in your place? You can’t figure it out by just looking at it. Therefore, the best way to know whether it contains fibrous materials is to have it tested. Every ACM testing and sampling needs to be conducted by a professional assessor via a certified NATA laboratory. Thus, property owners are highly advised to seek help and advice from professionals. Especially when you have any plans for renovations or refurbishments.

ACM testing is necessary and so is the removal procedure; both jobs should be done by professional contractors. Don’t think about removing ACM by yourself. There is a high chance to be exposed to fibrous materials. Hazardous material removal and testing is a dangerous process if it is not handled properly. Friable materials are easily airborne. This is why you need to wear personal protective equipment and prepare proper tools/removal kits before commencing any work on contaminated materials.

DIY testing kits along with illegal ACMs disposal are highly prohibited. The Government of Australia has a list of strict rules surrounding the removal and testing of fibrous products. Any inappropriate treatments can further lead to criminal charges and penalty. So, don’t cost any risks for your safety and consult a professional contractor right away.
