Asbestos: A Health Hazard with Permanent Damages
If your Phoenix home was built before 1980, then you most likely have asbestos within the building materials and other structural elements. This extremely hazardous material can cause permanent physical damage when ingested into the lungs. When your home is under restoration for fire and smoke damages or flooding and water damage, let the team at Zona conduct testing for asbestos to ensure that you’re not exposing yourself or your family to this dangerous material.
Other harmful consequences of asbestos include:
- Lung cancer and related lung diseases
- Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer found in the lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, and heart
- Asbestosis, a serious, long-term, non-cancer disease of the lungs
