Busted! Don’t Believe This Asbestos Removal Myth!
When it comes to home renovations, a couple of tasks can be performed by anyone. However, when it comes to the removal of asbestos, it’s best to leave it to the professionals as the task is not as easy and straightforward as you may think. In fact, it is extremely risky and complicated and could lead to severe health hazards if you make mistakes when dealing with it.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of myths and misconceptions associated with asbestos, which can lead you to either tackle a problem by yourself or misunderstand the risk asbestos poses.
To help you stay safe and make you aware, EC Abatement Inc has debunked one of the most widely believed myths about asbestos removal and explained how you can keep yourself safe.
Myth: Asbestos removal is simple and easy
Busted: This is the most common and dangerous myth that is widely believed. It is false! Asbestos requires precision when removing them. Never try to remove it yourself as only certified asbestos abatement contractors can remove and dispose of asbestos properly with the required licensing. The reason for this is because asbestos fibers are unlike any other building material out there. The fibers move easily within the airflow of the house. Due to this, if extreme precaution isn’t taken, there is a good chance these fibers will end up in your ventilation system, exposing you to dangerous air, which may be deadly if you breathe it in.
A professional knows exactly how to contain the material properly. This prevents it from spreading any further. The crew responsible has undergone proper training to ensure that they carry out the proper removal technique and have the proper tools and equipment needed. They can provide you with a safe air quality environment while also making sure they are well protected. This is not an easy task, and assuming you can do it yourself could lead to more harm than good. Professionals go through a rigorous process of sealing off the affected area while using the right tools and clothing to prevent contamination and then filter the space efficiently.
As a homeowner, you should be aware of the materials you are dealing with, as risking exposure to harmful substances like asbestos can cause you to put yourself and all your near and dear ones in danger. Hiring a professional is the safest and wisest thing to do, and it is cost-effective.
