No matter if you are planning a renovation or you want to check your home for improving your family’s health, it is a good idea to test your home for asbestos. Up until the 1970s, asbestos was a building material used to stop fires. Unfortunately, asbestos has many negative impacts on people’s health. Proper asbestos removal and cleanup from experienced professionals will improve your home’s safety. Keep reading to learn more about the reasons why asbestos removal is important for your home.
Asbestos is in Many Places
One of the continuing scary aspects of asbestos is how prevalent it is. A study suggests that up to 30 million buildings have a large amount of asbestos. If your property may have asbestos contamination, make sure to get it checked out as soon as you can.
Asbestos Hurts You
Asbestos is terrible for your health. The fibers get into the air where people and pets can breathe them. Breathing asbestos fibers can cause fatal issues, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. The worst part of these conditions is that some don’t show up right away, but linger in your system and then present months, sometimes years later. Asbestos kills around 5000 workers working in old buildings. When experienced contractors work in homes and buildings to remediate asbestos, they can minimize the problems to workers and the homeowners.
Required Asbestos Removal
The law requires the removal of asbestos in some situations. Renovating older buildings or tearing down a building usually requires an asbestos inspection. Depending on how the inspection goes, there may be additional steps to the building or demolition process. In this case, you or your contractor will need to clean the contaminated area or areas first, then go back to your original project.
