Why Asbestos Must Be Removed
Asbestos is a fibrous rock that has been used as an ingredient in building materials for thousands of years. It is not a health threat unless it is disturbed. However, if materials containing asbestos are damaged or disturbed, the asbestos will break down into tiny fibers that are released into the air and can be breathed in by a person. Because the fibers are so small, they can travel deep into the lungs and lodge in the lung tissue. Inhaling even a small amount of asbestos fibers can result in several serious diseases, including asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Risk is greatest for those exposed to asbestos for long periods of time.
How We Test for Asbestos
When purchasing a property, it’s always a good idea to have the property inspected for asbestos materials. Billings Construction Group has trained inspectors who can survey your property and take samples of suspect materials. Laboratory testing will then determine if the given sample contains harmful particles. If asbestos is present, we will then prepare a plan to remove the material from your property to ensure a safe living environment.
