Dangers of Asbestos

Asbestos was used in property construction and insulation for over 50 years, from the 1930’s to the late 1980’s. Asbestos materials are very dangerous if they have become airborne in your home. Asbestos has now been linked to several serious health issues. The abatement of asbestos is a potentially dangerous but needed service to ensure everyone’s health & safety. Asbestos has been linked to a number of serious health risks. Some of which can be easily treated, while others are much more serious.

Some common heath risks associated with asbestos and inhalation are:

  • Asbestosis – A buildup of asbestos fibres in your lungs can lead to lung damage and scarring. This can result in less lung elasticity and difficulty breathing.
  • Cancers – Lung, throat, oesophagus, Mesothelioma and other forms of Cancers have been directly linked to asbestos inhalation.
  • Pleural Thickening – Asbestos fibres can irritate the pleura (lining) of your lungs. This causes swelling and shortness of breath.

Each of these health issues can have serious impacts on your life and may not even begin to show symptoms for more than 10 years after your initial exposure. Keep your property safe with professional asbestos, inspection and abatement services.

Asbestos Abatement Process

Homes and businesses in Calgary and the surrounding areas have used asbestos for a range of different purposes. That is why the asbestos inspection and testing processes are so vital to a successful abetment process.

Some common steps in an asbestos abetment process are:

  • Asbestos Inspection – The first step is to inspect your home or business for signs of asbestos materials.
  • Asbestos Testing – Samples of these inspected materials are then taken to be tested by a lab in order to confirm the presence of asbestos.
  • Asbestos Removal – The affected areas is then sealed with polyethene sheets and tape in order to disallow the spread of airborne asbestos through your property during the removal process. The asbestos materials are then completely removed, placed into polyethene bags and disposed of safely and effectively.
  • Asbestos Encapsulation – If asbestos is found completely intact, the area can also be fully encapsulated, to prevent the eventual breakdown and spread of the materials.
  • Site Clean Up – The final step in an asbestos abatement process is to completely clean that area and prepare it for restoration processes

No home or business is exactly the same in regards to its asbestos use and condition. This means that no asbestos abatement processes will be exactly the same. Contact Bob Wallace Excavating today to learn more about the asbestos abatement tasks required for your property.

Commercial Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos was used in businesses for its lightweight, inexpensive and fire resistant qualities. This made asbestos seem ideal for property building and insulation. Employees and occupants of a commercial property can be exposed to the asbestos, particles, which can lead respiratory infection and other illnesses. The health risks associated with asbestos are what led to its eventual ban. Attempting your own asbestos abatement processes can result in increased health risks, more property damage than required and potentially ineffective removal processes.
