Why Is Asbestos Dangerous in Long Beach Homes? | Tri Span Environmental

Asbestos is a fibrous material that is harmful to any living being that breathes. It is common to find this product in a variety of places within older buildings. At Tri Span Environmental, we offer an affordable way to remove this hazard from your home or business anywhere in and around Long Beach.

Prevalence In Older Building Materials

Asbestos was determined to be a great material for building due to the fire-retardant and fire-proofing capabilities. The long-term health p[roblems associated with asbestos use and exposure was unknown initially. It was phased out and banned for use in the 1980’s. Unfortunately, it is still discovered in older Long Beach buildings to this day.

Health Risks of Asbestos Exposure

The health problems attributed to working with or being exposed to asbestos are not always experienced immediately. It can take 20, 30, or even 40 years to develop deadly illnesses like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other forms of abdominal cancer. Any level of exposure is deemed dangerous and harmful.

Layered Surfaces and the Risk of Unknown Asbestos Exposure

One of the problems with an older home or business building in Long Beach is you could be looking at layers of materials that are hiding an unexpected hazard. Asbestos fiber containing flooring, siding, and other materials that are beneath layers of more contemporary, safe products are unknown until you begin the removal process.

Release of Asbestos Materials Into the Open Air

Attempting to remove these asbestos-containing materials on your own can prove hazardous to you, your family, and the environment. Once asbestos-containing materials are exposed to the open air, these fibers become airborne and travel on the breeze. It is creating a problem for neighborhoods, the Long Beach community, wildlife, and anyone within range of breathing this material into their lungs.
