Point #2; Based from some research, asbestos has proven that this home material contain several forbidden materials that can hurt human life.

Point #3; Asbestos has been used for building materials by human started from 200 years ago. At that time we are not very aware about the dangers of its material, but in the modern era, asbestos mostly used for cement and tile, also become material for other industries. Some materials made of asbestos in the modern era are now found on:

Adhesive, tile, air-cell insulation, fiber, gasket, gloves, packing, textile, board, boilers, bonding cement, Clay, cigarette filters, clutch, firebrick, Paint, paper tape, plaster, pumps, valve rings and many others.

Almost all tools/materials and properties in home containing asbestos, this is very scared! You probably not realizing that the danger is near your home environment.

Point #4; Many governments in the world today ban and eliminate the asbestos production (lot of news written about it), but only some countries that already conduct inspections and perform asbestos removal. This action is done for the sake of human health.

Highly recommended for people who are still living in asbestos-roofed house to perform asbestos removal. Major cities in Australia such as Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Victoria and others reported that many asbestos materials still found in there, so they’re started checking and removing this banned home material.

Point #6; Action required! Do not take the risk. Health is paramount. Asbestos is 100% danger for us, that is a fact, you may also check other news that written by expert about it, so just find someone to help you.
