Why is Asbestos Dangerous?
The most common way that asbestos fibres enter your body is through breathing it in. Many of the fibres become trapped in a person’s nose and throat where these can be removed, however, sometimes these fibres can end up in a person’s lungs or digestive system, which will then cause health problems.
Asbestos is at its most dangerous when it is friable which means that the asbestos can be easily broken and release fibres into the air. Asbestos can be found anywhere in your home in places such as cabinet tops, floor tiles and fire doors.
Asbestos is usually found in three forms known as;
Amosite (Brown asbestos)
Crocidolite (Blue asbestos)
Chrysotile (White asbestos)
Amosite and Crocidolite are usually known as the most dangerous type and these have actually been banned since 1985, however, Chrysotile has only been banned in the United Kingdom since 1999.
At All About Asbestos, our aim is to remove dangerous asbestos from domestic and commercial buildings. Any building built before the year 2000 could run the risk of having asbestos in their home and it’s our job to find it and remove it. It’s extremely important for your safety to protect yourself as soon as possible if you potentially could have asbestos throughout your home. Protect yourself by clearing the hazardous and let someone know immediately.
What Are The Risks?
Asbestos fibres find it extremely difficult to break down in the human body and they cannot be removed once they have found themselves in your lungs or body tissue. Once the fibres are logged in the body they can cause diseases such as Lung Cancer, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis.
Do I have Asbestos in My Home?
Asbestos can be found in many different places throughout a home such as the ceiling, flooring, piping and cement. It is extremely unlikely that your home will contain asbestos if built after the year 2000.
