What is Asbestos and Why is it Dangerous?
Asbestos is a friable material, meaning it can be crumbled, powdered, and pulverized when dry. This breaks down to microscopically thin fibres that are so small, they can be airborne for multiple days. Additionally, the microscopic size means the asbestos can travel deep into a person's lungs if inhaled, where it can embed into the tissue. This is hazardous for many reasons; however, one of the largest concerns with asbestos is the risk of disease. Several serious diseases can be caused due to asbestos exposure, such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
Resistant to heat, electricity, and corrosion, asbestos is an excellent insulator which is why it was used in so many construction projects. If you have an older home or building built before 1990, it is likely that your insulation contains this hazardous material. It was also used in house siding, drywall, floor and ceiling tiles, car and truck brake pads, furnace and heating systems, as well as cement and plaster. If conducting any demolition or renovation work, it is crucial you have your building materials tested. Any asbestos containing material must not be disturbed without the proper safety gear and training.
Protect Your Health with Asbestos Abatement
Asbestos deserves an emergency response. As one of the most hazardous materials found in residential homes and commercial buildings, it is crucial you protect your health by hiring certified and trained technicians for the job. Without the proper equipment, asbestos removal can cause more harm than good. When this material is disturbed, the small fibres can travel through the air and enter the lungs causing lung disease, cancer, and other serious health risks. Professional asbestos abatement can ensure your home or building is free of hazardous materials. Not only will this protect your health, but the health of family members, visitors, employees, and future tenants.
