Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made of many tiny microscopic fibres. These fibres are very strong and highly resistant to heat, fire, chemicals and wear. Because of asbestos’ resistant properties, until recently it was used in many household and commercial building materials. It is now illegal to import raw asbestos or asbestos-containing products. However, many houses and commercial buildings tend to have some asbestos, as the products such as cladding, roofing and drainage pipes were still used up until the 2000s. PSU can help if you have any questions on Asbestos in your Household or Commercial premises.
Asbestos are very small fibres, and it is almost impossible to see asbestos – particularly if you don’t know what you are looking for. Asbestos is often used as a partial component of products, the fibres are woven in with other products. Because of this you are unlikely to know that a product has Asbestos. PSU can offer Independent Asbestos Testing, so we can ensure that a product contains Asbestos, and then safely dispose of it.
It is quite normal for houses built between 1950 and 2000 to contain asbestos. Worksafe New Zealand administers asbestos at the workplace, which includes your home.
