THE HIDDEN DANGER OF ASBESTOS
Lack of proper maintenance or unknowingly disturbing hazardous materials has the potential to contaminate an entire building which then requires thorough cleaning and decontamination to ensure the air quality is suitable for building occupants.
Asbestos-containing materials become dangerous when they are disturbed or when they disintegrate. As the crystalline structure of the asbestos-containing material breaks down, millions of microscopic fibers become airborne and are inhaled.
Over time, exposure to the asbestos fibers can cause a variety of serious conditions including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.
