Asbestos Removal in Southern Oregon
What are the Hazards of Asbestos?
Long-term exposure to high concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious health problems. When asbestos fibers become airborne, they can lead to illnesses, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. For more in-depth information, please visit this guide on asbestos in the home.
How Can You Protect Yourself from Asbestos?
As long as asbestos is undisturbed and remains undamaged and sealed, it’s not considered a health hazard. Materials containing asbestos can become hazardous if they are subject to rot or mold, remodeling, natural disasters, structural damage, and pest or rodent infestation.
