What is asbestos?
Asbestos refers to a group of 6 types of minerals that are naturally occurring and known for being incredibly resistant to heat, fire, and electricity. It was widely used as an insulator in newly built homes, buildings and protective gear between the 1940’s and 1980’s. Nowadays there are a wide variety of old asbestos-containing items, such as kid’s toys and tape, left over during the years it was popular for use in manufacturing. Parents should take extra caution when letting their kids play with old toys from the attic.
Why is asbestos dangerous?
- Asbestos is a highly toxic material that can cause mesothelioma, a deadly lung cancer.
- Causes many types of respiratory cancers and conditions when inhaled/exposed.
- Asbestos’s microscopic fibres enter the lungs and settle onto the tissues.
- Tasteless and odorless, staying undetected unless special tests are performed.
- Found in many old items manufactured between the 1940’s and 1980’s.
- You can live or work in a home/building containing asbestos for years and not know it.
Symptoms to these diseases occur decades after exposure, which is why it is vital that you take action now if you suspect you have asbestos in your home. If you are unsure, it is always better to be safe and call our team to inspect and test your home. Read more about why it is vital to hire an asbestos abatement company in this guide.
