Asbestos is an extremely toxic material that was used extensively in buildings from the 1800s onwards.
Asbestaway provides clients all over Cork with a full suite of asbestos roofing services including cleaning and encapsulation.
The Dangers of Asbestos
When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, asbestos fibres are released into the air. When breathed in, these fibres can cause serious diseases. Oftentimes these diseases don’t develop immediately but will be diagnosed years later. This is why it is of the utmost importance for asbestos to be removed as soon as it is discovered.
The diseases that have been linked to asbestos include:
- Mesothelioma - Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that effects the lining of the lungs.
- Asbestos-related lung cancer - The corrosive nature of asbestos fibres can directly lead to lung cancer.
- Asbestosis - This condition happens after prolonged exposure to asbestos and leads to a severe shortness of breath. Asbestosis can be fatal in extreme cases.
- Pleural Thickening - This condition is when the lining of the lungs begins to thicken and swell causing a shortness of breath and pain in the chest.
