If you’re worried about the presence of asbestos in your home, the good news is that you’re probably not in any immediate danger. Asbestos is only dangerous when disturbed, so unless you’re considering renovations, or you’re managing an active worksite that’s potentially contaminated, there’s no reason to worry. However, for those who do know they’re likely to come into contact with asbestos in their work or home projects, it’s incredibly important to consult an expert when it comes to disposal. Though it may be tempting to cut costs by learning how to do it yourself, the risks are simply not worth the savings.
Don’t Risk Your Health
Upon disturbance, fibres of asbestos become airborne, and when breathed in, they do long-term damage to the body. Although you may not see the effects of unsafe disposal straight away, the chances of illness in the future increase dramatically. Lung cancer is a well-documented result of inhaled asbestos, and that’s one sacrifice no one should be willing to make for the sake of cost-cutting.
That’s why it’s always recommended to call in the experts, even if you have concerns about your budget. And fortunately, there are companies that offer both independent hygiene services and considerate financing options.
