Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral substance that is soft, flexible and is resistant to heat and corrosion. In the past, asbestos was used as an insulator amongst other things. The natural quality of asbestos made it good for insulation but it is also highly toxic. These fibres are very soft and small, making it easy to inhale. Once the asbestos is inhaled by someone, it is trapped inside the body and starts affecting their lungs. If your home was built between 1930 and 1990, call Breathe Easy Eco Solutions for asbestos insulation removal services in Winnipeg. They will help you determine if your insulation contains asbestos. Do not disturb the insulation until it has been assessed as being safe to remove. Our experts can help you safely remove asbestos insulation in your home or office.
While asbestos is no longer used for insulation today, many homes and buildings that are older than 1990 still have asbestos insulation in the attic and walls. There are many locations in a building where asbestos could be present.
Asbestos minerals are highly toxic that can cause cancer and other diseases. Exposure to asbestos is not safe for the human body at any level. Asbestos fibres usually get circulated through air and that makes them more dangerous. The risk of getting ill increases depending on several factors such as the level of exposure, duration, and frequency of exposure. Smoking dramatically increases the negative effects of asbestos. Some of the health concerns that occur due to exposure to asbestos are:
