Why You Should Have Asbestos Removed

During the housing boom following World War II, houses went up at record rates. At the time though, a handful of materials were used that have since been identified as posing health hazards to anyone inside. Asbestos is one of these materials. Due to this, you need to have your home tested for asbestos and, should the tests identify any of the material, you need to utilize asbestos removal companies in Napa County, such as CVE Corp., to rid your house of the dangerous material.

Here are a few reasons as to why you should have asbestos professionally removed.

Health Problems Related to Asbestos

Asbestos has been found to cause lung cancer by those who are exposed to the building material. Typically this affects those who have lived within a house for years, although there are documented cases where individuals develop lung cancer after only a month of exposure to the material. There is also a link between asbestos and mesothelioma, which is an aggressive form of cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs. This aggressive form of cancer is often fatal. 

Easy to Spread

Should your property test positive for asbestos, it is important to have professionals come in and remove the material due to how easy it is for asbestos fibers to spread. Asbestos can easily move into the air or even the ventilation system, similar to dust, if it is not handled properly. While it is not illegal for you to remove asbestos yourself as a homeowner, it is not recommended at all for this very reason. 

Proper Removal

Asbestos needs to be properly removed and disposed of. It is not something that can be tossed into a dumpster as this puts everyone else who comes in contact with the dumpster at risk of exposure to the asbestos. A professional need to remove the asbestos to ensure it has been disposed of correctly.
