Currently, almost everyone around the globe knows about the ban on asbestos. What most people do not know is that asbestos is in fact considered a safe material, until it is in its friable state. This means a loose, chalky, or easily crumbled state. In this state, asbestos releases microfibers in air, which are catastrophic to human beings. Unfortunately, most buildings containing asbestos were built before 1970, therefore contain friable asbestos.
When the fibres are inhaled, they lodge onto the lungs, and could even move through the bloodstream into the heart and vital organs. Since the body is unable to break them down, they accumulate and could cause malignant cell growth which can cause cancer and other health problems. Mesothelioma is a highly fatal cancer caused by asbestos.
If your home or commercial building was built before 2000, it would be best to have an efficient asbestos removal company inspect your property to ensure that it is asbestos-free. The use of asbestos in construction reduced drastically around 1970, but until now, some buildings still retain materials that contain friable asbestos. Research has shown that asbestos is a silent killer, meaning you may not spot the damage it’s doing to you and your loved ones until it’s too late.
