The use of asbestos in the construction industry has been limited starting in 1980, after the discovery of the hazardous effects of this material. Contact with asbestos can put your health and life at risk. Inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers or dust can cause mesothelioma cancer, a cancer of the pleura, pleural plaques, asbestosis, and asbestos lung cancer.
Despite the limited use of asbestos, it is still very much present in our midst. It is present in many construction materials such as in roof shingles and siding, popcorn ceilings, vermiculite insulation, drywall and cement sheets, pipe and duct coverings, plumbing fixtures, electrical switchboard panels and thermal and fireplace insulation. Although asbestos-containing materials are not hazardous when left undisturbed, the asbestos becomes dangerous when these materials get damaged, broken, and worn-out or crumble.
Hazardous asbestos must be removed in your properties to protect you from present looming danger. Eliminating asbestos yourself is imprudent and too risky. The most important first step is to avoid touching the suspicious materials. Call a professional asbestos abatement company to manage the critical job.
