Many years after it has been deemed as unsafe for humans, asbestos is still found woven into the building materials of many Melbourne buildings. If you have purchased a home that was build in between 1950 and 1980 you should approach any renovation or demolition activity with extreme caution.
The first thing you should do is contact a certified asbestos company, they will be able to advise your next steps, like collecting samples and sending them off for testing. In some cases a professional will be able to tell you based on a visual inspection if you do in fact have asbestos.
Asbestos only becomes dangerous after if it is disturbed by some sort of construction or demolition activity, which releases toxic particle into the air which are very dangerous for humans.
