Coral Spring, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/08/2020 --An asbestos analysis is now available for homes and businesses in South, Central and North Florida due to the expansion of Aeris. Surveys are performed by a certified asbestos inspector trained in accordance with the standards of the industry. Asbestos testing is conducted by a thorough and safe team to ensure the risk associated with hazardous materials is managed effectively.
Asbestos Health Issues
The assumption is asbestos is present in a wide range of building materials including drywall, insulation, caulking and linoleum flooring. These materials become hazardous if they are classified as friable. This means the material will crumble easily. The danger is asbestos fibers can be released directly into the air. Scientific studies show breathing asbestos can lead to specific diseases including:
Scarring of the Lungs:
Breathing asbestos fibers can scar the lungs. Once this occurs, carbon dioxide and oxygen are unable to pass through the lungs easily. The result is difficulty breathing. Scarring is generally an issue due to high asbestos exposure for lengthy periods of time. Residential air quality testing is necessary for the detection of asbestos before any damage is done.
This lung condition is non-cancerous but results in changes in the membrane around the chest cavity and lungs. The membrane can become thicker or fluids can build around the lungs. Although pleural changes do not always result in difficulty breathing, lung function often becomes less efficient. An asbestos analysis is critical for the prevention of pleural disease.
Increased Risk of Developing Specific Cancers:
Asbestos exposure increases the risk of lung cancer. This is a malignant tumor blocking air passages to the lungs. The risk of mesothelioma also increases. This rare cancer covers the chest cavity and lungs. Symptoms might not appear for 30 to 40 years after asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure can also lead to cancer of the colorectum, stomach and pharynx.
