Before asbestos was banned in the U.S., remediation was a necessity for building owners, who were burdened with the cleanup of asbestos. In reality, asbestos was frequently present in old buildings and was used as insulation in roofing and wall coverings.
However, with the discovery of this material’s harmful effects, the cost to remove it from the building was enormous, and it also poses health risks.
Until recently, no matter how old the building was, asbestos had to be removed. Only after a building had reached its designated lifespan did the owners have the legal right to do this. Those who could afford it would replace old parts with new ones, making the entire work of asbestos removal much more expensive. Many house owners would resort to having professionals remove asbestos.
The most common form of Asbestos-related disease is Asbestosis. This is a condition that is genetic and is caused by repeated exposure to Asbestos. Asbestosis causes lung diseases, such as Asbestosis Cell Sarcoma, Asbestosis Granuloma, and Asbestosis Mucopolysaccharidosis, which are a serious form of lung cancer. There are now even cases where people diagnosed with
Asbestos-related diseases are still alive and unaware of their condition.
People who have had the misfortune of developing Asbestos-related diseases can receive a lump sum payment from the government. In fact, there are some people who receive more money for the benefit of Asbestos remediation, then the amount of money received for their life-saving procedures.
It is a known fact that, when it comes to Asbestos-related diseases, no one can say for sure what causes them. Therefore, no one is exactly sure how many people actually develop Asbestos-related diseases, nor can they be certain if they are of any use to insurance companies.
It has been proven that, in most cases, Asbestos remediations are unnecessary. Of course, if someone has already developed Asbestos-related diseases, there is still hope for them.
First, Asbestos-related diseases can not be cured. They are curable, however, through therapy or maybe even surgery.
Second, when it comes to Asbestos-related diseases, doctors are still unsure, what actually causes them. This has left a lot of people to wonder what truly causes Asbestos-related diseases and what cures them. It is still unknown.
Finally, In most cases, when doctors first diagnose Asbestos-related diseases, they often only prescribe medication. Doctors are not entirely sure why asbestos causes this or what cures it.
These days, Asbestos remediation and treatments have become more advanced. It is no longer necessary to remove the asbestos from the building in order to have your home properly air-conditioned, or even to have it properly insulated.
Today, all of the Asbestos that is still present in a building can be removed using a method called Reducing Asbestos Removal.
Although Reducing Asbestos Removal is not recommended for every type of building, it is often needed in older buildings, such as schools, restaurants, and commercial offices.
Reducing Asbestos Removal is not recommended for any home. Because the asbestos cannot be seen, and asbestos is very dense, removal can only be done after removing the actual asbestos. Asbestos remediation usually involves regular dust mop sweeps, building demolition, or removal of drywall and ceiling materials.
