Asbestos Abatement and Removal from Penticton
Asbestos is a fibrous material that was commonly used in building installation practices up until the early 1990s. Unfortunately, it was learned that asbestos can cause serious health risks when its fibres are released into the air. To this day, many buildings, homes and properties can still have asbestos within it.
Why is it important to remove asbestos?
It’s important to have it removed because asbestos can cause health problems such as lung inflammation and scarring, respiratory issues, and lung cancer. That’s why it’s crucial to ensure your residential, commercial and industrial property is free of this hazardous material.
Risk factors that influence the severity of an illness linked to asbestos depends on:
- The length of time a person was exposed to asbestos
- The amount of asbestos a person was exposed to
- The presence of other lung conditions (for instance, cigarette smokers have a higher risk of developing an asbestos-related illness)
What to do if you find asbestos
If you notice any of these medical symptoms and become curious about asbestos, the first thing to do is to have your home tested by a professional. Any further exposure through direct contact or through contact in the air will worsen symptoms and put you and members of your household in more danger. It’s best not to look for the asbestos yourself and let a professional secure the area and facilitate a safe and detailed removal.
