Used for fireproofing and insulation, asbestos was a staple in remodeling and construction projects. However, everything changed when discoveries proved the dangers of asbestos, as well as the materials containing it.
Asbestos exposure poses a number of health threats – most of which cause irreparable damage to the human body. Furthermore, its fibrous nature makes it more difficult to clear asbestos in homes and infrastructures — making asbestos even more dangerous. Asbestos fibres can release into the air, and when inhaled, it can lodge itself in the tissue of the lungs which causes damage and may even lead to a form of incurable cancer.
The removal and disposal of asbestos should be done by licensed professionals. Trying to remove asbestos without the help of asbestos removal specialists can lead to failure, exposure, and further damages.
