Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that has been used in the development of a number of common everyday products and building materials. Because of its ability to resist heat and corrosion, asbestos fibers have been used in products such as floor tiles, roofing materials, and vehicle brakes. In more recent years, asbestos has been determined to be a main cause for a number of dangerous health complications including mesothelioma and asbestos's.
In general, asbestos containing materials are not dangerous if they are undisturbed and are in good condition. However, there are several reasons that one should be concerned with the presence of asbestos. For example, if materials appear to be deteriorating or have been recently damaged, you may require asbestos remediation in your home or building. This is because damaged asbestos will break apart and release dangerous fibers into the air. Additionally, if you are planning a major construction, renovation, or demolition project, it is highly recommend that you determine if asbestos is present and take any necessary asbestos remediation steps. Advanced Environmental Services can evaluate any potential asbestos problems and perform the necessary asbestos remediation services before the asbestos becomes a problem.
