Why is Asbestos Dangerous?
Asbestos is dangerous because its fibres, which cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted, do not dissolve in the body once inhaled or ingested. This makes asbestos incredibly difficult for our bodies to expel, resulting in inflammation, scarring, and cellular damage. Asbestos is associated with three significant severe chronic diseases: lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. One of the challenges of asbestos is that there are no immediate symptoms upon exposure to the substance. Asbestos-related diseases can take up to 20-50 years to develop. Given the seriousness of asbestos-related illnesses, preventative measures are the only way to avoid these diseases. This means removing potentially dangerous asbestos-containing materials from your Edmonton home or business. That’s why you need the experts at Grimebusters involved to avoid exposing yourself to this dangerous substance.
When is Asbestos Dangerous?
Asbestos becomes a serious risk to your health when the fibres become airborne, and you breathe them into your lungs. There are two common ways asbestos fibres can become airborne:
- When Asbestos-Containing Materials Begin to Degrade. Asbestos-containing materials that deteriorate will release asbestos fibres into the air. Some common materials where this can occur are attic insulation, spray-on popcorn ceilings, sprayed fireproofing and sprayed thermal insulation.
- When Asbestos-Containing Materials Become Damaged. Asbestos-containing materials that become damaged during a home or business renovation can release asbestos fibres into the air. Similarly, tears, cracks, or water damage may also release asbestos fibres.
As long as your materials that contain asbestos are in good condition, they don’t pose a health risk. However, suppose you find asbestos in your home or business or believe there could be asbestos-containing materials in your property. In that case, the experts at Grimebusters are here to help! Our team of asbestos removal specialists can quickly asses your property for asbestos and remove it safely and efficiently.
What to Do if You Discover Asbestos-Containing Materials in Your Home?
As previously mentioned, sometimes it’s essential to remove asbestos-containing materials and other times it’s safe to leave it undisturbed. In any case, the evaluation and removal of asbestos should always be performed by asbestos removal professionals like Grimebusters.
