Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that has been used since the 1800s as an insulator, vinyl for floor tiles and even cements roof sheeting. While it is put in for useful purposes, it is also a dangerous hazard to human health. The asbestos fibres are at least 200 times thinner than human hair and can float in the air, invisible to the naked eye and if inhaled, it could cause serious lung and respiratory conditions.
In the early 1900s, the deaths of many building and asbestos workers were related to the inhalation of particles. Diseases such as asbestosis, pleural plaques, lung cancer and even intestinal tracts were caused by asbestos exposure. Decades later, strict rules & regulations were placed for workers dealing in asbestos. Not only were the safety rules limited for workers, but also for the average citizen whose homes had asbestos damage.
These regulations lead to the need of hiring trained professionals who could handle asbestos removal with full compliance to safety regulations and prevention of asbestos exposure.
