Why You Need Commercial Asbestos Removal Services
When left untreated, asbestos proves detrimental to the health of those around it for several reasons. Especially in buildings built or renovated during the 80s, it is essential to make the property asbestos-free. To better understand why asbestos is so dangerous to human health, consider the following:
Disturbed asbestos breaks down into microscopic fibres that remain airborne – entering the lungs when breathed in. The fibres eventually lodge in the lung tissue, which can lead to severe health problems. Illnesses include asbestosis (scarring of the lung tissue, which reduces functionality) or mesothelioma (cancer along the lining of the lung cavity).

- ● It is a durable material.
- ● The material is incredibly cheap.
- ● It has excellent insulating properties for sound and heat.
- ● Asbestos provides adequate fire protection as a fire-resistant material.
- ● It boasts good resistance to chemicals and water.
