What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a natural, fibrous mineral that was commonly used in buildings up until the 1980s. When the asbestos inside of these buildings is disturbed, it releases fibers into the air that can be dangerous to those who inhale them over an extended period of time.
Where is asbestos found?
Asbestos was a popular building material for many years because of its insulator and fire-resistant properties and can be found in many older homes throughout the United States in insulation, ceilings, floors and more.
Although asbestos has been used in over 3000 different applications, it is commonly found in steam pipes, popcorn ceilings, vinyl floor tiles, sheetrock/plaster, lath, vermiculite insulation and more.
If you have an older home and remove any of these products, you should be aware of the possibility that they contain asbestos.
What are the health risks of Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos is banned in many countries, as it has been shown to cause certain cancers (mainly mesothelioma) in those who are directly exposed to it for long periods of time. Worst of all, most people do not experience symptoms until at least 15 years after exposure.
If you are tearing out any of these materials in your home and want them to be safely and effectively removed from your property, we ask that you think of our fully licensed and qualified team at All Demolition & Asbestos Services.
We will come to your property, pick up all materials that contain asbestos, and have them safely disposed of, leaving you with one less thing to worry about while working on your home.
