What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a fibrous material that was used for building insulation and construction from the 1930’s until the late 1980’s. Asbestos was considered to be an ideal building material, as it was strong, lightweight, inexpensive and fire resistant. Though, when asbestos materials are damaged or break down in any way, airborne particles are released, inhaled and can cause several serious health issues. Due to the range of illnesses that have come to be associated with asbestos, the material is now banned as a building material and should be removed from your business.

Dangers Of Asbestos

Asbestos has been linked to a number of serious and even fatal health issues. Asbestosis, lung pleura infections, lung cancer and other illnesses have been linked to the inhalation of asbestos fibres. Asbestos fibres travel into lung tissues and cause scarring and abnormal healing, which lead to these illnesses. Asbestos-related illnesses also can remain dormant or not show symptoms for up to ten years after the initial inhalation. The longer you have asbestos in your business the more likely you are to face one or more of these illnesses.
