Asbestos is a mineral fiber that can be released when disturbed or touched. Generally, asbestos-containing material in good condition will not release asbestos fibers. Asbestos fibers can be released into the air when asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed, while those materials that are intact pose little risk for exposure. There is no danger unless fibers are released and inhaled into the lungs.

Breathing in asbestos fibers for a prolonged period may result in serious diseases, such as lung cancer, asbestosis (lung scarring), or mesothelioma, a cancer in the lining of the lungs or abdomen. Smokers who are exposed to asbestos have a much greater risk of developing asbestos-related diseases than non-smokers.

Elevated concentrations of airborne asbestos can occur after asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by remodeling activities or contact. Improper attempts to remove these materials from your Falls Church, VA property can release asbestos fibers into the air, increasing asbestos levels and endangering those nearby. The most dangerous fibers are too small to be visible, while symptoms of asbestos-related diseases do not show up until many years after exposure. Therefore, it is best to leave undamaged asbestos material alone and only allow trained and qualified professionals near asbestos-containing materials.
