Asbestos Cleanup Services – New York
Asbestos is a commonly found building material in many residential and commercial structures. What was once thought to be a ‘Miracle Fiber’ because of its resistance to chemicals, fire, water and electricity has now been found to be the source of health complications that have killed over 12 million people, 25 years and older, within a decade in the US alone and more deaths are expected; directly relating to long-term asbestos exposure (according to asbestos.com – an advocacy group designed to help victims of asbestos exposure find the best treatment). Although the number of deaths are alarming and with over 40 countries, including Australia, France, Ireland, U.K., Egypt, and many others outright banning the use of asbestos, the United States is not one of them. However, we are regulating the manufacturing, importation and distribution of it now.
History of Asbestos
How does the manufacturing of asbestos continue? Front end affordability and easy mass production. The health effects of asbestos were documented in the early 1900’s but that did not stop its rising popularity well into the late 1990’s. It was a perfect product for countless things, resulting in profit that outweighed the value of human lives. But the front end affordability is now showing the long term costs, many of which cures have not been discovered yet.

Danger of Asbestos
We have already established that long term exposure to asbestos has killed many. But how exactly does it happen? There are a number of types of asbestos related diseases and no cure for any of them yet. If you have an older house, chances are you’ve got popcorn ceilings and this fact alone should not have you calling us in distress but it should mean you are more cautious around them. If you are planning on a remodeling project that will disrupt your popcorn ceilings, the best thing you can do for your family’s health and your own health is to have it tested for asbestos. As long as your ceiling remains untouched, the dangers of asbestos exposure remain minimal. But when you start disrupting this product (or any other) that contains asbestos, the dust particles become airborne and that’s how they make their way into your body. That type of exposure is when the health risks increase greatly and a professional cleaner is recommended.
Asbestos Exposure Related Diseases
- Mesothelioma Cancer (Pleural, Peritoneal and Pericardial)
- Lung Cancer
