Professional Asbestos Test & Removals – 5J Building Group
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of flexible fibers that are resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. These qualities make the mineral useful. However, asbestos exposure is highly toxic. Asbestos was widely used in construction as an effective insulator, and it can be found in cement sheet under floor tiles, wall tiles, splash back from kitchen, old heater flue, eaves, roofs, wall cladding, exterior walls, meter box from house built before 1990. When asbestos dust is inhaled or ingested, the fibers can become permanently trapped in the body. Over decades, trapped asbestos fibers can cause inflammation, scarring and eventually genetic damage.
Exposure to asbestos can cause cancer and other health conditions. A rare and aggressive cancer called mesothelioma is almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos also causes a progressive lung disease called asbestosis. The carcinogenic qualities of the mineral are what makes asbestos dangerous.
