Professional Asbestos Testing Albany, NY Can Depend On
Asbestos was banned by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the 1970s but it is still found in many residential and commercial settings. People exposed to asbestos have developed several types of the life-threatening diseases, including cancer. Asbestos continues to pose a health risk to workers and others.
Asbestos can refer to any combination of minerals known for their heat and flame resistance, indestructible qualities, and strength. These minerals have been used for decades in the development of thousands of commercial products including insulation and fireproofing materials, textile products, and cement and wallboard materials.
Potential Health and Legal Risks of Asbestos
Asbestos is extremely toxic to the body, because the human body is unable to break down, change or digest asbestos. Asbestos is indestructible, and once it gets into your lungs, you can’t get rid of it. The symptoms of diseases, which are related to asbestos, often occur long after the person has been exposed. Eliminating the hazardous material from your home or business as soon as it is discovered is critical and can only be done by a qualified professional.
