What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a building material that was widely used in commercial and residential buildings up until the 1980s, when its catastrophic health impacts were discovered. One of the scariest aspects of this material is the scope to which it was used.
Before it was banned, asbestos was used as a fireproofing material, but was also added to pipes, shingles, floor tiles, drywall, insulation, siding and sealants. Because it was so easy to work with and manipulate for multiple purposes, asbestos became one of the most widely-used building materials across the country.
Today, asbestos removal remains widespread, especially as the material gets old and breaks down, releasing toxic fibers into the air. Prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers is known to cause serious and even fatal illness, including lung cancer.
How Do You Know if Asbestos is Present?
In Gilbert, asbestos removal is often required when someone buys and renovates an older office building or home. If a home or building was built before the 1980s and hasn’t been extensively remodeled, there’s a very good chance asbestos exists somewhere on the property.
The dangers of this material only get worse as time goes on because the asbestos breaks down and the fiber spores become airborne. Even the simple act of nailing a picture frame to an old plaster wall could release deadly fibers into the air.
