Did you know that unlike other asbestos-containing materials, it’s generally safe for people to be around vinyl asbestos flooring? However, this would change as soon as they make a decision to remove them because working with asbestos flooring releases toxic dust. For this reason, the lack of awareness when handling asbestos tile floor removal South Florida can potentially lead to diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. To be on the safe side, it’s best to leave this job to qualified professionals.
A large number of American manufacturers used to mix a toxic mineral called asbestos into their building materials. Due to the fact that it’s fibrous and can be pulled apart into a soft and woolly consistency, it has the ability to make building materials stronger and more resistant to heat.
However, the dust that these old materials release when they were distributed can cause people to be sick later in life. Since the human body couldn’t dissolve asbestos, the microscopic asbestos fibers that a person inhales stays stuck in his body. The presence of these fibers in the body can lead to genetic changes that result in cancer as well as the buildup of scar tissue. Although the use of asbestos has now been limited in the country, thousands of people who were previously exposed to this toxic mineral still die every year.
If a flooring material was installed before 1980, it’s safe to assume that it contains asbestos. However, you can’t tell just by looking at a flooring product unless you see the manufacturer’s label. A surefire way to find out is to get the floors inspected by an asbestos-abatement professional.
