Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that actually occur naturally in our environment as bundles of fibers. Historically, asbestos has been used in many construction projects in our country because it is fire and water resistant and easily and inexpensively produced. What was learned later, after many construction workers came in close contact with it, was that asbestos is actually extremely dangerous. Long term exposure to asbestos can cause significant health issues and even death. It is critically important to safely remove any asbestos so that you and your family are safe. Maryland Recovery specializes in asbestos removal services in Frederick, MD, and the surrounding areas.
Important Facts About Asbestos
It is important to know that asbestos is only dangerous when the fibers are released into the environment, where they can be breathed in. Many homes and businesses built before 1980 will have asbestos, but when left undisturbed, is not harmful. If you are concerned that the asbestos in your home or business has been disturbed in some way, you need to enlist the help of a team that can safely conduct asbestos testing and detection. Asbestos removal should never be conducted by someone without training. Self-removal techniques do not protect the individuals who are trying to clear the area.
Many parts of your home or business could contain asbestos. Some of the most common spots to find it are:
- tile floors
- roofing materials
- interior popcorn ceiling material
- textured paint
