Experienced Commercial Asbestos Removal for Orange County Businesses
Although asbestos is still in use, products containing asbestos must now meet federal regulations. Generally speaking, older structures are more likely to contain asbestos material. This deemed carcinogen poses a serious airborne health risk to occupants during demolition or construction. Asbestos is most dangerous when it becomes friable or disturbed. Proper asbestos abatement is essential to eliminate hazards of microscopic sized particulate matter.
Asbestos Exposure Can Lead to Cancer: Removal is Critical
Asbestos is silent and deadly. You cannot detect the particles in the air. These particles get into your lungs when you breathe and when you swallow. Inhaling asbestos fibers into the lungs have been found to cause
- Lung cancer
- Pleural Mesothelioma
- Other cancers of the stomach or colon
Exposure to asbestos does not cause immediate illness. It can take anywhere from 10 to 50 years after regular breathing of asbestos particles for cancer to set in. The more asbestos you inhale or ingest, the more likely you are to get sick. The period between asbestos exposure and onset of cancer is called the latency period.
