Asbestos is a type of long thin fibrous mineral. Asbestos can withstand heat and resists electricity and chemical damage. In the past, asbestos may have been used as a fire
retardant. If airborne asbestos is inhaled it poses a serious threat to your health. When inhaled its tiny fibers are trapped in the lungs leading to lung cancer, mesothelioma and other diseases. If you think asbestos may be in your home, consult an asbestos abatement and removal service. Asbestos removal consultants offer free inspections and
estimates on asbestos removal or in more extreme cases demolition. Asbestos abatement and removal should be performed strictly by trained professionals who take every
precaution as far as safety of inhabitants and employees. OSHA (Occupational
Safety and Health Administration) and EPA asbestos rules and regulations must be followed. Asbestos abatement may require demolition or destruction of property ranging from removal of drywall to even bigger projects.
