Asbestos is one of those words that strikes fear into building owners and home owners. Most people know that asbestos is dangerous, yet have so many unanswered questions like when? why? how? who?. Talk with Paul Milne today.
When the fibres of old or damaged asbestos are exposed and lose, it becomes a hazard to human health. The fibres become airborne and float through the air, when you breath in the air you are breathing in the microscopic fibres which become lodged in your lungs by way of little hooks, barbs and needles. When these fibres get into your lungs, your bodies natural response is to try and remove the foreign substance, which it can’t do. However it keeps trying and trying and trying and this becomes the problem, in time it can turn cancerous.
Health issues related to Asbestos may not become apparent or manifest them selves for many years. It can take as long as 15 years to manifest, often longer. Because of this long period and the lack of real understanding of the risks, most people become complacent of the risks and take the “she’ll be right” approach and “it won’t happen to me” attitude or the “hey we can do this no one will know” or “here wear this paper mask LOL you’ll be right”. The one we hear more often than all is from other trades, particularly builders, painters who say “its only a small bit I have worked with it for years without a problem”
The health risks are present all the time, at every point of the asbestos problem. Its like playing Russian roulette if its not dealt with, with care, understanding, knowledge and skill.
Most people think only of the fibres flying in the air from the outside of the structure or roof, however of greater concern and something that people are not aware of, is the risk of fibres inside the ceiling space or other cavities. The asbestos fibres work there way into the living areas over time and can have a potentially devastating affect on you and your family or your tenants living within the contaminated areas.
Asbestos poses a significant risk to your long term health and that of your family, tenants, and neighbors and the community as a whole.
