Many Kelowna Homes Have Asbestos
Any building built before 1985 could very well have asbestos in it. In any case, if you believe your home has asbestos you should contact our team of asbestos removal professionals. It is difficult to know if your home has asbestos unless you are developing symptoms or have prior knowledge of their existence. The issue with waiting until you develop symptoms is that it is often too late, they have already affected your health and will continue to do so in the future.
So if you have a home built in Kelowna, before 1985, and believe that a cough or slight irritation may be caused by asbestos it’s imperative that you contact our asbestos abatement team. We can complete an inspection, and solve any asbestos-related issues in your home.
The Dangers Of Asbestos
Asbestos is a strong, fire-resistant mineral fibre that’s used to insulate against heat and noise as well as fire protection. The problem is that asbestos fibres can enter the air, and when inhaled can cause a number of extremely serious health issues like cancer.
Asbestos is extremely dangerous, especially if the asbestos-containing materials are disturbed or deteriorating. This causes more fibres to be released into the air, contaminating entire sections of your Kelowna home and making clean up very difficult. Needless to say, you need a professional Kelowna asbestos removal team to make sure you and your family stay safe and healthy.
