Asbestos Abatement Massachusetts
Professional Asbestos Removal in Massachusetts
Are you dealing with respiratory problem symptoms, skin irritation, or other medical complications you can't explain? Believe it or not, there are harmful material particles in your home's air that the naked eye can't see, which might be damaging your health. If your house was built in 1977 or before, asbestos is one of them.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate fiber material that was once a commonly used substance in the construction industry for its insulation and fire resistance characteristics. After years of research, we have learned that when inhaled, asbestos is hazardous and connected to health concerns such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Atlantic Bay Contracting wants to ensure the safety of our customers by offering our EPA, DBE, and MBE-certified asbestos abatement services in Massachusetts. Our experienced team will help eliminate the threat and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Dangers of Asbestos Containing Materials
Exposure to asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) is no small matter. It's a serious health hazard linked to several debilitating and even fatal conditions. Let's delve deeper into the specific dangers you face when encountering ACMs:
1. Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma:
Lung Cancer: Mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer affecting the lining of the lung, chest, and abdomen, is almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure. The risk of developing lung cancer also significantly increases with ACM exposure, even for non-smokers.
How it happens: Inhaled asbestos fibers irritate and scar lung tissue, increasing the risk of cancer development over decades. These microscopic fibers lodge deep within the lungs, causing long-term damage.
2. Respiratory Issues:
Breathing difficulties: Inhaling asbestos fibers can irritate and inflame the airways, leading to chronic breathlessness, wheezing, and coughing.
Scarring and fibrosis: Over time, asbestos fibers can scar lung tissue, leading to a condition called asbestosis. This irreversible lung scarring makes breathing difficult and reduces lung function.
Pleural thickening and effusions: Asbestos can also irritate the pleura, the membrane lining the lungs and chest wall. This can lead to thickening of the pleura (pleural thickening) or fluid buildup between the pleura and lungs (pleural effusion). Both conditions can cause chest pain and breathing difficulties.
3. Eye and Skin Irritation:
Eye irritation: Airborne asbestos fibers can scratch and irritate the eyes, causing redness, itching, and burning sensations. Repeated exposure can increase the risk of eye infections and inflammation.
Skin irritation: Contact with asbestos-containing materials can irritate the skin, causing itching, redness, and even rashes. While direct skin contact is less risky than inhalation, it's still important to avoid exposure due to potential long-term health consequences.
Remember, these are just the main dangers of ACMs. The severity of health effects depends on various factors like the amount and duration of exposure, type of asbestos present, and individual susceptibility.
Protecting yourself from ACMs is crucial. If you suspect the presence of these materials in your home or workplace, seek our professional help, we are qualified asbestos abatement specialists. They will assess the situation, properly handle the ACMs, and ensure your safety.
