Most people do not realize that dangerous and life threatening asbestos could actually be found in their homes. This highly hazardous material may be hiding within your ceiling, your attic and even lurking throughout the duct work in your house. Although asbestos production was banned throughout the United States in 1978, the leftover material was still being used as a flame retardant throughout the 1990’s. What was once considered a benefit regarding home safety, it is now known for what it is; a deadly substance that can harm you and your family if it is not safely and professionally removed. For over the last thirty five years, the experts at RenoPro have been the most trusted company for asbestos removal in Vancouver.
RenoPro is considered the leader within the industry, and has the most professional know how and the best resources for asbestos removal in Vancouver, and throughout the entire area. We have a highly trained team of asbestos removal experts who can take samples of your home and have them analyzed for a full review. If the removal needs to take place, we will carefully and completely remove the dangerous materials and dispose of them according to safety laws and processes. If you don’t have a professional analyze the situation, you can never be sure that you and your family are truly safe.
Exposure to asbestos can actually cause lung cancer, and other asbestos-related cancers, such as rectal cancer, colon cancer, and stomach cancer. While lung cancer can develop from asbestos exposure by itself, asbestos combined with tobacco use can greatly increase your risk for development. So, even if you or a loved one smoked, you may be at risk for asbestos-related lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure. Asbestosis is a serious disease that is triggered when inhaled asbestos fibers become lodged in the lungs. This is another danger that can occur by being exposed to asbestos.
The most common way for asbestos fibers to enter the body is through breathing. In fact, asbestos containing material is not generally considered to be harmful unless it is releasing dust particles or fibers into the air where they can be inhaled or ingested. Many of the fibers will become trapped in the mucous membranes of the nose and throat where they can then be removed, but some may pass deep into the lungs, or, if swallowed, into the digestive tract. Symptoms may not occur from anywhere between 20 to 50 years after the exposure.
