Essential Info About Professional Asbestos Inspections
In 1971, Asbestos was declared a harmful air pollutant by the EPA. The more an individual is exposed to asbestos, the higher the likelihood of developing health issues such as lung cancer and asbestosis. The aim of a professional asbestos inspection is to ensure that the asbestos contractors follow the proper work practices in how they perform demolition and waste disposal.
The purpose of containment during asbestos removal is mainly for decontamination.
It also prevents the asbestos fibers from migrating into the atmosphere. Asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer are just a few of the potentially fatal diseases that can be brought on by prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers by inhalation. Your chance of developing cancers of the digestive system, particularly colon cancer, may rise if you have been exposed to asbestos.
Containment comprises three main things: the barriers, the view port, and the negative air. Once all the asbestos has been successfully removed from the structure, it is considered waste. It is then sent to a landfill that is noted by the inspector.
