Asbestos removal by Washington, D.C. commercial property owners is mandated by law when loose, microscopic particles of asbestos, found in ordinary building materials until the late 1970’s, become friable and take to the air. Asbestos fibers, like nano-knives, can then be inhaled and begin slicing into the pleura – the lining of the lungs, where they amass and slowly begin their decades-long march toward disease and suffering.
But asbestos found in other structures, including homes, can remain, where it lies dormant until it is unwittingly exposed during renovation and remodeling, or following the wake of a natural disaster. Since asbestos creates a long-term health hazard when exposed, asbestos removal in Washington, D.C. is critical to eliminate the proven danger.
Never touch, smell, or disturb any substance or material you suspect may contain asbestos. Anything from a slight vibration from a passing truck or train to repeated patterns of friction can begin the process that releases toxic microscopic mineral fibers into the air.
