Asbestos Inspections: The Only Way To Determine If Your Building Is Safe

Asbestos inspections are the only way to determine the presence of this carcinogenic (cancer causing) substance. Unfortunately the health effects were not known until the late 70s. As a result, asbestos was used in many industries including building and construction. Insulation, roofing, fireproofing, ceiling and floor tiles, paints, and vermiculite-containing garden products that were made prior to this and are still in use today may still have asbestos. If you suspect that asbestos is present in your home, get it tested right away.

What are the health risks of asbestos?

  • Asbestosis - a scarring of the lungs that makes breathing difficult
  • Mesothelioma - an otherwise rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity
  • Lung cancer
  • Cancer of the larynx
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cancer of the pharynx
  • Stomach cancer
  • Lung and pleural disorders

Why Do You Need An Asbestos Inspection?

When products containing asbestos are disturbed, the tiny fibres (of asbestos) get released into the air and may be breathed in. When this happens they can get trapped in the lungs and remain there for a long time causing individuals who have inhaled these fibres over prolonged periods to get very sick.

The only way to determine whether or not your home or business is safe is by scheduling an asbestos inspection. Based on the asbestos reports the removal company can decide what needs to cleaned out and which areas just need to be sealed.
