Asbestos exposure is a serious problem in the United States. Most home that was built before the 90s have asbestos-containing materials. Living in an older home makes asbestos exposure more likely, as materials will begin to break, causing asbestos fibers to be released into the air. Remodels are also a common occurrence in older homes. By remodeling, you are damaging the asbestos-containing materials. This allows the asbestos to expose everyone in the home. Below we will discuss what you should have asbestos removed by a professional and what illnesses can occur from asbestos exposure.

Why Should You Have Asbestos Removed?


Asbestos cannot be seen, meaning it can easily be overlooked inside your home. Older homes usually need remodeling, but before you remodel, you should have the home inspected for asbestos. Asbestos removal is a complicated process that should only be completed by certified and insured asbestos removal specialists. Removing asbestos, yourself ends up with exposure, as you do not have the proper equipment, suits, and respirators to remove, seal, and dispose of the asbestos safely. By hiring an asbestos professional, you take the dangers out of removal, protecting your entire family.

Dangers of Asbestos Exposure

Unfortunately, most people do not realize the risks of asbestos exposure. With asbestos being more prominent in the media, people are starting to take notice of how dangerous asbestos really is. Asbestos is known to cause severe illnesses. Not only does asbestos exposure cause respiratory problems, but it also causes the following:
• Mesothelioma
• Asbestosis
• Pleural Thickening
• Pleural Hardening
• Lung Cancer

Above are just some of the illnesses that are related to asbestos exposure. For the safety of you and your family, never try to remove asbestos from your home. Hiring a professional asbestos removal contractor will ensure all the asbestos has been removed and that your home is safe for all future remodels and renovations.
