Asbestos was a popular building material for decades because of its fire-retardant properties, but the microscopic fibers it releases when disturbed can cause long-term damage to the lungs. Diseases like asbestosis or lung cancer can appear decades later.
Do you know about the dangers of Asbestos?
What is Asbestos? Asbestos is a mineral that was added to a variety of building products to strengthen, or act as an insulator. It is a dangerous carcinogen and exposure may cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer. Asbestos poses the greatest danger when it becomes airborne, therefore any disturbance of potential asbestos containing materials is very serious. All potential materials must be sampled and analysed before any demolition or renovation occurs. Common asbestos containing materials, but not limited to:
- Floor tiles
- Vinyl sheet floor (linoleum)
- Drywall taping compound
- Texture coat on ceilings and walls
- Furnace duct tape
- Vermiculite insulation
- Pipe insulation
- Transite shingles
Disregarding the kind of asbestos you may have is never a good idea, exposure to it can be extremely hazardous to your health. Asbestos is responsible for a number of lung ailments, including pleural plaques (a thickening in the chest cavity that impairs your lungs), asbestosis (lung scar tissue), lung cancer and mesothelioma.
