Most Frequent Occurance Of Asbestos Exposure
The bathroom is also the room where most “do it yourself” renovators expose themselves to asbestos, because most people don’t get their walls tested or inspected by a qualified company like South Adelaide Asbestos Removal before starting home renovations.
How To Do A quick Check
An easy way to check if the walls are likely to be asbestos cement is to carefully pop out a power point or ceiling fan…if the material is a grey cement like sheeting then its likely to contain asbestos if your house was built prior to 1993.

Asbestos in the Bathroom Questions and Answers
Question: Was asbestos used in bathrooms?
Yes it was! Asbestos was used in the vast majority of houses built before 1993.
Question: Was asbestos used in bathroom wall cladding?
Asbestos cement wall cladding is the most commonly used type of asbestos containing product in bathrooms.
Question: Was asbestos sheeting used in bathrooms floors?
Asbestos “thick sheet” was often used in areas where suspended timber floors are present. The asbestos floor sheet was screwed down to the floor joists, often with a layer of cement and tile adhesive above it.
Question: Do I need to remove the flooring if I’m re-tiling the floors?
Not necessarily. If the drainage points are not being moved then tiles can usually be carefully removed without disturbing the asbestos below. As long as there is a barrier layer of cement above the asbestos thick sheet often tilers can re-tile floors leaving the thick sheet in place. Check with your tiler for confirmation.
Question: Does my bathroom ceiling contain asbestos?
Asbestos ceilings are far less common than wall and floor cladding, although they do pop up from time to time.
