Unless your home has been recently built, there may be asbestos hidden in the property structure. This asbestos could be within other products. Perhaps it is concealed in the walls or roof of your home. You may not realize that it is there until it is damaged, or you attempt to remove it during a renovation. If you think that you have found asbestos in your home, you should never ignore it.
The opportunity to construct one's forever home is not one that every person gets. Hence, when you get this chance, you must make the most of the construction of your new home build so that you do not have to engage in renovations down the road that could have easily been avoided. And one such way to maximise the design of your custom home build is to integrate acoustic panelling products in the structure.
Asbestos is a material that was used in the construction of roofs and piping until the year 2003 when it was banned in Australia. It was discovered that asbestos caused respiratory problems and even lung cancer.
The law now requires that all asbestos materials be removed from buildings by competent and highly-trained individuals.
