No matter where you live, the risks associated with asbestos exposure are very real. If you are involved in the trades, or you work in an industrial setting, you need to be especially aware of your surrounding environment. Construction and demolition crews working in hospitals, schools, manufacturing plants, and even residential homes are potentially at risk anytime old components are being removed including insulation, carpeting, wiring, wallboard, popcorn ceilings, siding, roofing, plaster, and many others.
Although strict regulations have been put in place, many products still in use today contain high levels of the substance. When these items are broken down or compromised, the asbestos fibres contained within become airborne. When breathed in, even trace amounts of asbestos can lead to breathing difficulties, lung conditions, cases of Mesothelioma and other forms of cancer.
If you suspect there is any chance of asbestos exposure on your property, do not delay in having your property tested! Unfortunately, when symptoms of mesothelioma take hold, it is usually at the third or fourth stage once the cancer has spread. These symptoms include:
