Why remediate asbestos?
Inhaling asbestos fibers most commonly causes lung tissue scars, which hinder the intake of oxygen in the blood and cause shortness of breath. The most fatal impact of asbestos exposure is lung cancer, though most cases are related to workplace exposure in asbestos manufacturing plants, not residential exposure. A second, more rare form of cancer is Mesothelioma, which spreads through lung, chest, abdomen, and heart membranes. Nearly all cases are linked to asbestos exposure, but it remains dormant for years.
