Why is Asbestos Dangerous?

Asbestos exposure has been linked to a variety of health problems. Individuals, who reside in older homes with disturbed asbestos materials, are likely to experience these health problems. The problems can be particularly catastrophic because symptoms don’t usually surface until years, later when it’s too late to save the situation. Below are some health risks of asbestos exposure:

  • Malignant mesothelioma – Around 3,000 people in the U.S are diagnosed with mesothelioma annually. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer defined by a malignant tumor that can form in the abdomen, heart, and lungs as a result of inhaling asbestos fibers.
  • Other forms of cancer – Asbestos inhalation can result in other types of cancers including, ovarian, lung, and laryngeal cancer.
  • Asbestosis – This is a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. It can cause chronic cough and shortness of breath, among other health complications.
  • Lung disease - Asbestos exposure can lead to progressive lung conditions like pleural effusions, pleural plaques, and pleuritis.
  • Additional health concerns – Asbestos fibers can cause numerous health concerns over time, including scarring, inflammation, and even genetic damage.

Can I Remove Asbestos Myself in NJ?

Asbestos is a highly hazardous waste. Getting rid of asbestos from any residential or commercial building can be risky if you don’t have the right training. Crocidolite (blue asbestos), Amosite (brown asbestos), and Chrysotile (white asbestos) are the most common types of asbestos utilized used in the construction and manufacturing industry. A Licensed company is required by law

Hiring an asbestos abatement firm like AAA Lead Professionals and not doing it yourself is the safest and wisest decision when it comes to wiping out asbestos from any building. We will test for the presence of asbestos fibers, and if there are any, safely remove them as per the laid down state and federal asbestos laws.

What To Do If You Suspect You Have Been Exposed to Asbestos

The most crucial step is to avoid touching the suspicious materials. But what else should you do?

  • Don't remove the suspicious material yourself
  • Keep kids out of the suspected area
  • Limit your activities in the suspected area
  • Don't vacuum, sweep, or dust possible asbestos debris
  • Call a certified asbestos abatement company

What to Expect During Asbestos Removal: Our Process

To start the asbestos removal process, we first establish a restricted area by putting barriers in place. Depending on the asbestos project, we may establish an airtight plastic barrier around the affected area or even HEPA air-filtration blowers to create negative air pressure. Usually, we do this to prevent asbestos fibers from contaminating the surrounding environment. Next, the material containing asbestos is removed using wet methods to reduce fibers release.

Once we are done with this, the work area is spotlessly cleaned. At times, an encapsulant is placed on the surfaces of the` remediated area to lock down any leftover microscopic fibers. The air in the suspected area is tested for the presence of asbestos. Once the work area has been cleared, we remove the barriers to allow you to continue with your daily operations.

The bottom line is, as a certified asbestos abatement company, we are always committed to safely serving New Jersey residents. Most importantly, we conduct all the removal processes within federal and state laws.
