What Are the Health Risks Associated with Asbestos and How Can Abatement Help?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used for centuries in a variety of construction materials. It has been used in insulation, roofing, floor tiles, and many other products. Unfortunately, asbestos has been linked with many serious health risks, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. The risk of developing these illnesses increases with the length of exposure and the number of asbestos fibers inhaled. Asbestos exposure can also cause other respiratory problems, such as wheezing and shortness of breath.
Removal of Asbestos: What You Need to Know
When asbestos-containing materials need to be removed from buildings, it is important to hire a licensed asbestos abatement contractor. These contractors use specialized techniques to safely remove asbestos-containing materials from buildings. They will first contain the area and then use specialized equipment to wet the materials, which will help contain the asbestos fibers and reduce the risk of them becoming airborne. The contractor will then use a HEPA vacuum to remove any remaining asbestos fibers. The material will then be disposed of following EPA regulations.
