The Importance of Proper Asbestos Removal -- and How it Affects YOU!
Proper asbestos removal is extremely important to pay attention to. It's commonly
used in boiler insulating materials before the 1980's. These days, we're far more
aware of the danger asbestos can pose. While you're probably okay if the asbestos
is currently not exposed, you absolutely need to get it removed if it is. It's important
to get it removed by an expert if you're getting your boiler removed.
In fact, that's one of the main reasons why you'll want to hire a professional to do it
for you. Asbestos is composed of a variety of minerals, including tremolite,
actinolite, anthophyllite, chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite. The combination of
these can be dangerous to your health. Only professionals know the correct way to
remove asbestos with no danger to themselves or to you.
Not sure you have an asbestos problem? It's possible that you will need to have an
inspection to check for this. Now, if your building or home was built after 1980
then it's not likely you have any problems. If it was built prior to 1980, getting
things checked out should be a priority for you. If you do find that there is asbestos
insulating your boiler or pipes, you will need to get it removed.
Still not sure you need to avoid removing it yourself? Consider that asbestos
materials can be released into the air if not done properly. This can be dangerous
for both you and your family. Another consideration is that you need to dispose of it
properly after asbestos removal. Failure to do so can have dangerous health
There are some who are aware that they have an asbestos problem, but think that as
long as they stay away from it, it will not be an issue. Unfortunately, that is not
always the case. As was already mentioned, the fibers can be released into the air.
Exposure over long periods of time, even in small amounts, can be disastrous.
