Home renovations - know what you're dealing with
Before you start work renovating an older home that may contain asbestos, think about the people who may be affected: you and your family, mates who come along to lend a hand, maybe even your neighbours. Never use power tools on suspect materials or a high pressure hose to clean an asbestos roof. It is estimated that one third of all homes contain asbestos – if you are not sure what you are dealing with, seek professional advice. It will save time and money in the long run, and more importantly reduces your risk of developing an asbestos related disease.
