Why Only Professionals Should Remove Asbestos?

by Guest on Feb 27, 2016

Contemporary contractors very often call asbestos a hidden or even serial killer because it is very hard to detect. Asbestos is not a single substance but a variety of fibrous mineral materials that are found naturally in rock formations all over the world. Some contemporary scholars believe that the name of this substance comes from an ancient Greek term, Asbestos, which means ‘inextinguishable’. Geologists claim that asbestos can in fact be found in relatively large deposits on every single continent of the world. Although scholars consider asbestos as a relatively modern miracle material, according to the archeologists this material's fibers were created some 750,000 years ago, in the era called the Stone Age.

Renovations and Asbestos

When you perform any home renovation project it usually comes with a lot of dust around you. If this dust contains asbestos its fibers may come inside your airways and cause serious lung disease and sometimes even some types of lung cancer. Moreover, even if you have already finished your home renovation, asbestos particles can remain suspended in the air for many hours because they are extremely fine. As even after asbestos removal procedure is done the fibers may remain in the air for a long time, all the workers are in fact exposed to those fibers and so may acquire serious and sometimes chronic health problems.

Doctors say that such diseases will not affect a person immediately. As a rule, these conditions develop over a long period of time, and when diagnosed, it is unfortunately very often too late for any intervention or treatment.

If your house is built or has been refurbished before 1990 then you need to be aware of the asbestos removal danger.

At the same time do not panic if your house has been built before 1990 but you do not perform any renovations, because only the presence of asbestos in a building does not pose any danger to its inhabitants. However, experts say that if you see there any signs of degradation or damage to the house’s materials and you think that you have found asbestos, never touch it yourself. Call for professional help!

Removing Asbestos

According to all professional constructors and builders there are two cases of home renovation projects, when you need to look for professional help: situations when you need to remove mold or asbestos from your house. In both cases when hiring professionals you can be absolutely sure that you are safe and that insurance will cover any extra damages. But when hiring experts make sure to check their qualification and insurance.

In case you like doing everything yourself and never hire pro help, it is still advised to call for an asbestos removal team for such projects to protect your health and your family’s well-being. However, experts advise to still take some precautions, such as at least wearing a protective mask, because otherwise, fibers might be inhaled and the home contaminated. It is also highly advised to contact your municipality in order to find out the correct ways of disposing asbestos-containing materials.
