As­bestos alert

Australian House & Garden - - Advice -

“Un­til the late 1980s, as­bestos was used to man­u­fac­ture a broad range of prod­ucts and can be found in al­most any room of a house. You can’t tell if a prod­uct con­tains as­bestos by just look­ing at it. If you’re un­sure, treat it as though it does and take all nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions. Prop­er­ties can be in­spected by a li­censed as­bestos re­moval­ist to con­firm as­bestos pres­ence through sci­en­tific test­ing at an ac­cred­ited NATA lab.

Never cut it, drill it, drop it, sand it, saw it, scrape it, scrub it, dis­man­tle it, tip it, wa­terblast it or de­mol­ish it. And what­ever you do, don’t dump it. For more, visit www. as­besto­saware­ness.com.au.” Barry Du Bois, in­te­rior de­signer and As­bestos Aware­ness am­bas­sador. H&G
