Breathing in asbestos fibers is the most common method of entrance into the body. Asbestos material is generally nor harmful unless it starts to release fibers and dust into the air, then ingested or inhaled. Most of the fibers are trapped within the mucous membrane of the throat and nose where some can be removed while others are embed into the lungs or digestive tract. Once in the body, the fibers can cause health complications.
Asbestos is dangerous when friable or can be crumbled by hand, releasing the hazardous fibers in the air. Floor tiles, ceiling tiles fire doors, siding shingles, etc. do not release asbestos if they are not disturbed or damaged. Asbestos inspection is a vital step in ensuring you are not at risk from asbestos fibers. While you wait for an asbestos inspection team, keep away from the material you suspect to contain asbestos.
Mold is a fungus type that is made up of tiny organisms. Mold can be white, black, orange, purple or green. Mold thrives best in moist areas and they propagate through small, light spores that are airborne. In tiny amounts, the mold spores are typically harmless, but when they encounter a damp area, they begin to grow rapidly. In an area where mold is growing, spores released into the environment can be inhaled and cause health problems such as asthma. If your wall appears to have black patches, or you detect a distinct, lingering odor, you need to conduct a mold inspection.
