What To Know About Abestos Abatement

Asbestos Abatement Services

Despite irrefutable scientific evidence that shows the dangers of asbestos, two million tons of this carcinogenic material are exported every year to the developing world, where it is often used without regard to any law.

Asbestos has excellent insulation properties, therefore it has been widely used for many years in constructions, but it has been banned worldwide because it turned to be damaging to human health. Specialists discovered that inhaled asbestos fibers can cause various types of cancer.

Diseases are triggered with delay after exposure to asbestos. Inhalation of the fibers causes a pulmonary medical condition known in medicine as “asbestosis”, which increases the risk of lung cancer up to six times. Moreover, exposure to asbestos may increase the risk of cancer of the upper respiratory tract, esophagus and kidney.

If these health hazards were not present, asbestos would have been the best thermal and sound insulator, being also durable (the word “asbestos” originates from ancient Greek and means “durable”). Fortunately, companies have developed a replacement – a non-asbestos thermal insulation board made of non-asbestos-bonded mineral fibers and united with a binder.  Be sure to hire superior workmanship for masonry restoration projects and other exterior projects when dealing with asbestos abatement.

Asbestos-free insulation boards have the following advantages:

  • High temperature resistance (up to 1200 degrees Celsius)
  • Modifiable
  • Superior quality
  • Safe for health
  • Competitive price.
