Asbestos Information

Asbestos In home diagram 1Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals.  It is because of those properties that asbestos was used as an additive to many different building materials.  When asbestos containing materials degrade or are disturbed the fibers become airborne and are easily inhaled accumulating in the lungs causing serious medical conditions such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. 

The medical problems associated with asbestos exposure have a delayed onset and will not manifest into noticeable problems until years after the actual exposure occurred. 

Limit your potential exposure by having ESI perform an Asbestos Survey prior to any renovation or demolition activities
