Asbestos is extremely dangerous. Studies have found a definitive connection between inhaling asbestos fibers and developing mesothelioma, which is a form of cancer that is almost always fatal. Asbestos was once widely used in the construction of products and buildings. A few of the most common ways asbestos was used include:
- Automobile manufacturing
- Floor tiles
- Electrical components
Due to the health risks that asbestos poses, it is no longer used in the construction of most products or buildings. While asbestos usage has dropped significantly, unfortunately, there are still products and buildings containing asbestos all around us. Slowly but surely products containing asbestos are being properly disposed of and asbestos is being removed from buildings.
At RPF Environmental, we understand the danger that asbestos still poses, and we work to ensure that asbestos is found and removed.
