Asbestos Dangers and Removal

11/7/2018 (Permalink)

Asbestos has been heavily used in the recent past as a soundproof, insulator and fireproof material in all types of buildings. It was later determined to be the cause of serious and fatal lung disorders. It is generally not considered to be a hazard unless it is disturbed from the location it rests. Removal is important, but you want to make sure it is done by experts that are EPA/AHERA certified.

Dangers of Asbestos

The tiny fibers that comprise asbestos material are the real culprit when it comes to health risks. Once they are set free in the air they become a danger to any living person or animal that breathes them in. It can cause a rare form of cancer called mesothelioma, or simply attack the lung function in other ways. Exposure over time can prove fatal in some cases.

The fibers from asbestos are considered so toxic that you should not attempt removal on your own. This is a project that should be well-planned and carried out by a professional licensed team. Anything less could mean putting the lives of you and your family at risk for serious health problems on down the line. It is not worth taking the chance. Asbestos cleanup is a sound investment for the sake of safety.
