What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a material containing naturally-occurring minerals that create flexible, soft, heat- and corrosion-resistant fibers. It works as an effective insulator and is also present in paper, cement, plastic, cloth, and other materials to make them stronger.
Because exposure to asbestos can cause cancer and other asbestos-related diseases, U.S. manufacturers and companies may only use it in products if the amount of asbestos is less than one percent. Older buildings sometimes have a higher content of asbestos, which can put people at risk for health problems.
Common areas for asbestos-containing materials include pipelines, insulation, flooring, and paint. Hiring a qualified asbestos removal company will help you remove the asbestos correctly and safely.
How to Identify Asbestos Products
You cannot tell if a material contains asbestos or how much asbestos it contains by looking at it. In some cases, a label can tell you if asbestos is present. Other times, the only effective way to identify asbestos content is testing from a trained and accredited asbestos inspector or contractor.
For several years, the United States has had specific regulations in place for manufacturing and using products that contain asbestos. There was a partial ban on products in 1989 and then a final ruling in 2019 that prevented certain products from returning to the marketplace.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), discontinued asbestos products include:
- Adhesives, sealants, and coatings in roof and non-roof applications
- Arc chutes in electricity generating plants
- Cement products
- Packings for mechanical equipment
- Pipeline wrap
- Vinyl-asbestos floor tile
- Protective clothing and other woven asbestos textiles
- Building insulation and textured paints
If you need to identify asbestos prior to removal from your home or business, our experienced contractors at Pro Service Builders can help.
What Are the Asbestos Risks?
If the amount of asbestos is too significant, inexperienced people handling it can pose several risks. Inhaling or ingesting dust from asbestos can lead to mineral fibers becoming permanently trapped in the human body. The fibers may then cause inflammation, scarring, genetic injury, and cancer or lung disease.
Asbestos related diseases include:
- Mesothelioma – an aggressive cancer in the pleural and peritoneal linings
- Ovarian or laryngeal cancer
- Lung cancer
- Lung disease
To prevent the health risks from asbestos, it is crucial to hire a trusted asbestos abatement team with a track record for successful and safe asbestos removal.
