The Dangers of Asbestos

When you first move into a new home or move your business operations into a new building, asbestos is probably not a big concern. However, when you take on your first major remodeling project, if your home or office building is older, you may encounter asbestos. The team at American Restoration Water & Fire LLC wants to caution you that professionals are required to get rid of this harmful substance.

About Asbestos

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that occurs naturally. Builders used asbestos because of its insulating and fire-retardant properties. It is excellent at resisting heat, which is why people started putting asbestos into building supplies such as floor tiles, shingles and insulation. Unfortunately, when disturbed, asbestos particles and fibers can cause disease as people breathe them in.

American Restoration receives calls on a regular basis from New Mexico homeowners and business owners who are dismayed to report that they have asbestos and need help with mitigation. The problem with asbestos is that it is implicated in a range of human health problems, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Exposure to asbestos is linked the development of asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma (a form of cancer affecting the heart, abdomen, chest and lungs).
