Why should I be concerned about asbestos?
Asbestos used to be a common building construction material. It was used in a variety of products, including insulation, roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, friction devices, paper products and packaging materials, and gaskets, as well as in fire-retardants.
When materials containing asbestos are damaged due to repairs, remodeling projects, or demolition activities, the asbestos’ microscopic fibers become airborne and can be inhaled. Prolonged asbestos exposure can cause significant health problems, such as lung cancer.
Consult with us when you have an older building that needs to be torn down or upgraded. We can assess the construction site and complete the necessary testing.
I shouldn’t have to worry about lead because my home is new, right?
This is not necessarily true. Lead is a natural compound and thus may be found in soil. Continual exposure to contaminated soil could cause lead poisoning, which is a dangerous and potentially fatal condition. Lead poisoning is especially dangerous for children because it can cause cognitive deficits, blood and brain disorders, and kidney failure. If you think you might have lead in your soil, contact us today.
