Asbestos in the Bathroom
You may be surprised to know that the bathroom is the second most common place to find asbestos cement in the home (right behind your Eave linings). Asbestos cement was used extensively in the internal walls in bathrooms as well as in flooring in bathrooms in houses with timber floor boards or where the bathroom is on the second storey.
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.
