What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral frequently used for construction projects due to its flame resistance and the strength of microscopic fibers, which, when exposed to, can turn into a severe health hazard, such as cancer or lung damage, and scarring.

Asbestos can be found in:

  • Wall and Attic Insulation
  • Roofing
  • Siding Shingles and More

It can also cause lung damage when inhaled, and its fibers can cause scarring in your lungs that cannot be fixed.

Asbestos Exposure

You are in an alarming danger of being exposed to asbestos during:

  • Home Remodeling
  • Renovation

While breaking down the house during remodeling or renovating, you may get exposed to its fibers.


What You can Do

In case of asbestos exposure, you are advised to take immediate below-mentioned actions:

EPA Approved Inspection

You can hire an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved, officially trained professional to inspect your home for asbestos.

For homeowners, you can treat asbestos fibers with a sealing agent that will bind them together through encapsulation or cover the exposed space with an enclosure method to keep its fibers wrapped and unexposed.

Be careful while working with an asbestos professional and doing structural work in your home to keep your loved ones away from imminent harm.
