For those of you who have no clue what an Asbestos Abatement process is or even what asbestos is. We are going to do a quick overview of the process. Usually, asbestos was applied by a spray and was widely used as a flame retardant and shingles. We say that they were because well, making them became illegal way back in the late 1970s at least in the United States. This court ruling though allowed companies that had asbestos to continue using them until the mid-’80s.
Why Is This Issue?
We are telling you all of this because asbestos were found to release toxins in the air that could be very harmful to humans. So, for the better part of basically 3 decades now people like us have been trying to remove all of the asbestos from homes or buildings that were built when using them was still legal. Now that you know that it may kind of make you wonder why the court order allowed home builders to still use them for almost ten years after their production was already banned.
Is my home toxic? How could I monitor the quality of the air in my home? There are people out there that were never aware of the presence of asbestos in their homes and lived long and happy lives. So, it shouldn’t be a cause for alarm right now. Even if you do have asbestos in your home still, they will not automatically be toxic. There are different factors that come into play that all have to align to have the asbestos release those toxins in the air and actually cause major issues.
