Watch out Renovators for the toxic hazards of Home renovations

Perhaps the television shows have motivated some of you to fix up or change some parts of your home? With the warmer weather coming up, now is a great time to do those renovations but be aware of the dangers.

There are a lot of toxins that can be generated by sanding, scraping, pulling up vinyl tiles and drilling holes.

Homes built between World War 2 and the 1980’s are likely to contain asbestos. Asbestos was used in the internal wall linings, ceilings and external fibro sheeting because of its insulation properties.
