Asbestos is strong and has heat-resistant properties, making it a commonly used material in the building and construction industry. However, when asbestos fibers are released into the air, they pose a great health risk to people. Prolonged exposure to asbestos has been linked to a number of serious health conditions including lung cancer, which is costly to treat and can be emotionally and physically draining on the patient. Asbestos-containing materials that remain untouched do not present significant risks unlike when they are tampered with during demolitions and constructions.
Symptoms related to asbestos exposure can take a long time to show, which may cause the victim’s health to decline to a point where treatment is difficult. To be on the safe side, it is recommended you test for asbestos if you suspect you might be living in an area that is contaminated. Iris Environmental Laboratories offers quality asbestos testing and inspection services.
Mold can grow anywhere as long as there is moisture, oxygen and nutrients. Exposure to mold can cause a variety of health effects including nasal stuffiness, eye and skin irritation and wheezing. People with compromised immune systems and chronic lung illnesses may get serious lung infections when exposed to mold.
Mold can enter your household through doorways, vents and windows and will grow anywhere with moisture, such as around leaking pipes or flooded areas. Mold can also grow on cardboard, carpet and upholstery. To prevent mold exposure, keep your surroundings moisture-free and clean at all times.
