What is Asbestos?

Asbestos was a cheap and popular building material used through the late 1970s in many construction projects, including residential homes. Since it was affordable and exceptionally durable, it was commonly used until the health risks became too great to ignore. 

Now old properties that had documented usage of asbestos have been knocked down, remodeled, and renovated. However, older homes can still pose a significant risk of asbestos exposure. As a result, you should contact the asbestos testing and abatement team at HS Restoration today if you live in an older home and are worried about asbestos exposure. 

Why is Asbestos Dangerous?

Once you understand what asbestos is, you can comprehend why it is so dangerous to your health. Asbestos can affect people’s health, especially those with pre-existing conditions or in more susceptible categories. Pregnant women, young children, and elderly individuals should be extremely cautious if they believe asbestos is present in their homes. Call an asbestos testing and abatement specialist ASAP if you are concerned about contact with asbestos. 

Coming into prolonged contact with asbestos can cause issues ranging from minor breathing and asthma problems to significant heart and lung issues. In some cases, medical experts have documented paralysis, brain trauma, and even death.
