Although regulations changed in 2016 there are a lot of cowboys still in the industry, with many newcomers entering with the legislative changes. Unfortunately, this poses massive potential risks to the average Kiwi where inexperienced and/or less skilled operators are undertaking substandard work.
One such example of this is the poor assessment and removal of unsealed asbestos ceilings in a family residence. Common in many Kiwi homes, over the years miniscule dust fragments of the asbestos coating drop down off the ceiling, landing on the carpet and drapes. A lot of companies will remove the ceiling coatings and call it a “job well done”. Unfortunately, that toxic matter is still there, and though it is near invisible to the eye, it still poses a very real health risk. For example, if your child were to push their toy across the carpet, this would cause the asbestos fibres to become airborne and inhaled, potentially leading to lung problems as they grew older.
