What is asbestos, and why is asbestos harmful?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made of soft, flexible fibers. These fibers are resistant to heat, corrosion, and electricity – so asbestos was very popular in building materials until the 1980s.
Unfortunately, asbestos fibers are highly toxic when inhaled. Once inhaled, asbestos mineral fibers can become permanently trapped in the body and lead to a number of health issues including (but not limited to) asbestosis, lung disease, and aggressive mesothelioma cancer.
If there is asbestos in your pipes, wall shingles, or roofing, it’s important to know about it. While asbestos might not be harmful if left undisturbed, it can wreak havoc during construction, or when it starts to decompose.
How can I tell if asbestos is present in my building?
If you suspect that your building might contain asbestos materials, you are probably wondering how to quickly resolve your doubts. Although sometimes it is possible to detect a health hazard through observation, this is not the case with asbestos. It is extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to identify asbestos by looking at it. It is also not usually possible to smell asbestos.
So, if you can’t identify asbestos by sight or smell, how can you tell if your building has asbestos? Thankfully, there are laboratory tests that can quickly identify the presence of asbestos. If you think your building may have asbestos, it’s best to schedule a professional inspection with a company certified in asbestos abatement.
The only way to know if you have asbestos materials in your home or office is with an inspection. Asbestos Removal PRO can offer accredited laboratory tests to confirm whether or not asbestos removal is required. If it is determined that there is asbestos in your building, we can identify the level of risk and formulate a plan to seal or remove the asbestos. Dealing with asbestos quickly and professionally can prevent future health concerns. If there is a chance that your building contains asbestos, take the first step by scheduling a professional inspection.
