Asbestos is a fibrous silicate mineral, with fibers up to 18,000 times smaller than the human hair. When handled, asbestos fibers can be released into the air and inhaled. The fibers aggravate lung tissues and can cause serious diseases like mesothelioma or asbestosis. The New Mexico Environment Department knows that the mishandling of asbestos materials is dangerous, that’s why they mandate that asbestos should only be removed by professionals. A licensed asbestos abatement professional like American Restoration should always be used. Not only do we know how to properly handle and remove asbestos, but we know how to properly dispose of the material as well.
If you’re a homeowner and you’re used to taking on DIY home improvement projects, or if you own a commercial property that contains asbestos, please do not attempt to remove it yourself. Strict laws that govern the handling of this dangerous material are in place for your protection. Don’t risk exposing yourself to potential disease.
