Global Asbestos Awareness Week 2015

It may be April Fool’s Day, but we are not fooling when we warn you about the dangers of asbestos. This week is Global Asbestos Awareness Week and we want to make sure that you are aware of the risks you could be taking if you tackle home renovation projects that involve asbestos containing materials.

Where can asbestos be found?

 What about in a Commercial Property?

We hope that you take our warnings about the dangers of asbestos exposure seriously. Especially in spring, when we all want to tackle home improvement projects in the warm (but not too hot) weather, it would be easy to neglect the very real risks posed by trying to remove asbestos yourself.

Don’t do it!

Here is an excerpt from a documentary film entitled “The Evil Dust, a history of Asbestos” that we thought might make you more careful:

Asbestos: The Evil Dust

Of course, we all want that old pipe insulation, that ancient linoleum, those roof shingles out of our homes and out of our environment. But if you don’t do it the right way, removing those materials can be worse than leaving them in place. Contact a professional asbestos abatement company before you endanger your own health or that of your family.
