By now, most people know that asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral added to construction materials for its fire-retardant properties. Although asbestos was effective in reducing fire damage, it came with a heavy cost—causing lung cancer and other diseases for workers who inhaled microscopic asbestos particles.
Most homes and commercials buildings constructed before 1978 are likely to contain asbestos. The most common places asbestos was used include:
- Ceiling tiles
Not all asbestos poses an imminent health risk. Only when these building materials start to break down, flake away, or suffer water damage do asbestos particles have the potential to become airborne and lodge in a person’s lungs.
If you notice crumbling or damaged construction materials in your pre-1978 home or commercial property, contact Action Restoration for asbestos removal services today.
The Dangers of Asbestos
A common insulating and fire retardant throughout much of the 20th century, asbestos is now known to be linked to serious health problems when its fibers are inhaled—most notably mesothelioma, a very rare and serious form of lung cancer.
In addition to mesothelioma, exposure to asbestos fibers can cause:
- Lung impairment
- Asbestos warts and other skin conditions
- And more
If your home or business was constructed prior to 1978, it is very possible that it may have been built with asbestos as an insulating or fire retardant agent. In 1978, the use of asbestos was banned, but structures that already had it installed were not mandated to remove it.
Today, we know that asbestos removal carries significant health risks and requires specialized training, equipment, and disposal techniques to eliminate risk for asbestos abatement professionals and building inhabitants alike.
Action Restoration is licensed, trained, and experienced in providing the highest quality asbestos removal for homes, businesses, industrial properties, off-shore platforms, and maritime vessels throughout the Gulf Coast region.
How Do I Know If My Property Has Asbestos?
You can inspect the construction materials in your pre-1978 home or building for signs of damage, but you won’t actually be able to see asbestos since it’s a microscopic fiber. If you see crumbling or flaky insulation and drywall, or damage to any of the other materials listed above, call Action Restoration immediately. We’ll send samples to a lab to determine if asbestos is present, and will make a plan for its safe removal.
