Does your home have asbestos?

This is an important question because exposure to asbestos can cause severe respiratory ailments such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. Both of these lung diseases can be fatal.

The best way to ensure that asbestos is safely removed from your home is to hire a trained professional contractor. The experts at Specialty Environmental can safely remove and dispose of all asbestos-containing materials without causing disruption to your home’s air quality.

Asbestos is a mineral that can be found in many parts of the world. Unlike most other rocks, asbestos has a unique fibrous texture that allows the mineral to be woven into fabrics or processed into building materials that are strong and totally fireproof.

Asbestos fibers are invisible and dangerous

Although asbestos has been used for thousands of years because of its insulating and fireproof qualities, we know today that exposure to microscopic asbestos particles is extremely dangerous. Some forms of asbestos (referred to as “friable” asbestos) are more dangerous than others because they are easily degraded, putting hazardous microscopic fibers into the air you breathe.
