Home Living : August 17th 2010
8 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, August 17, 2010 Domestic warning » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Renovators and homeowners have been warned of the danger of asbestos, not only found in walls and roofs, but in a range of other products, including floor coverings such as linoleum. The asbestos warning comes after an incident at a property renovation where the homeowners called the Australian Institute of Architects building advisory service Archicentre after they found asbestos in floor coverings. The owners bought a 50-year-old home and, after ripping up the floor coverings and having them tested, discovered that the lino was 70 to 80 per cent asbestos. Archicentre spokesman Edward Lukac said the real risk of exposure to asbestos fibres and dust occurred with the demolition of walls or roofs during renovation of a property, drilling or cutting of products containing asbestos or even the removal of old linoleum or vinyl tiles. ''It is vital to understand that once you disturb asbestos people must recognise the extreme health risks involved for homeowners and their families of the diseases which can be caused by asbestos dust,'' Mr Lukac said. ''These diseases can occur many years after the exposure to asbestos dust has ceased, but the likelihood of a person contracting an asbestos-related disease increases as the intensity and duration of the exposure increases." Mr Lukac said many houses in Australia had been constructed using asbestos- cement products as internal and external walls, ceilings and roofing. Asbestos was used in flat-sheet fibro- cement building products up to 1982 and in corrugated fibro-cement roofing material up to 1986. ''Asbestos sheeting or other materials containing asbestos should always be removed by a specialist contractor who will also arrange for its disposal in a landfill registered to take asbestos materials,'' Mr Lukac said.
