Frequently Asked Questions about Asbestos Removal Services
What is Asbestos
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral. These fibres are very strong and are highly resistant to heat, fire, chemicals and wear.
For decades, asbestos was an extremely popular building material. It is fire resistant and a great insulator and was used throughout New Zealand in new homes and businesses.
It can be added to cloth, plastic, paper, cement and other materials to increase their strength, but when asbestos dust is inhaled or ingested by humans, it can lead to various dangerous lung conditions like mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer, this is why now it is considered as a serious health and safety hazard.
Why is asbestos dangerous for my health?
Breathing in airborne asbestos fibres can be a serious health risk; the fibres lodge themselves in the lungs and may cause harmful diseases including asbestosis, pleural thickening, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
Most asbestos-related symptoms can take up to 20 years to appear and can increase when exposure is more frequent and occurs over long periods of time, and when people inhale more fibres.
