The photo shows a small section of asbestos roof in the suburb of Glen Iris. Many home owners know the dangers of asbestos but are unaware of its presence; corrugated asbestos like in the photo is a perfect example of this. Asbestos roofs in Melbourne have very deep corrugations as you can see in the photo, they are also surprisingly strong. Although asbestos roofs are very strong, fine particles of the asbestos are constantly breaking away and floating into the gutters.
Any regular debris found in the gutter of asbestos roofing is considered contaminated waste, regular cleaning is not always possible. Grayson’s Gutter Cleaning can advise you on the best solutions to reduce the need for ongoing maintenance. Fortunately asbestos roofing is mostly found on old sheds and garages, it is rarely found on the main roofs of houses. Care must be taken in transporting and disposing of asbestos waste.
