Common Myths About Asbestos Removal in San Diego

Posted by CVE Corp. on Feb 28, 2018 10:57:00 AM

Asbestos is a serious problem when found in a home. There are many negative health side effects connected with its presence, so asbestos removal is a must if it is found in your San Diego property. However, the team at CVE Corp. wants to make sure you understand what's going on and why asbestos can be so dangerous.

Here are several of the most common myths with regards to asbestos.

  • New Properties Mean No Asbestos

In the perfect world that would be the case, but that simply is not true. Asbestos is found in many different materials, including those used in new homes. It is true, newer homes are less likely to use asbestos based materials, but the only way to know for sure whether asbestos is found in a property is to have it inspected.

  • Mesothelioma is Contagious

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer within the respiratory system, caused by breathing in asbestos. The asbestos fibers lead to the development of this cancer and other breathing conditions. While serious in nature, this cancer (or other breathing conditions) are not contagious.

  • It's Alright to Remove Asbestos Yourself

No. This is false. You may have heard of someone saying they have done this before, but it is not safe at all. Asbestos fibers are easily disturbed and can move anywhere. This means even when wearing the necessary protective gear to move asbestos, the fibers may end up elsewhere in the house and absorbed into the ventilation system, which can send it anywhere else in the home. It is not safe to do this, and it is why you must turn to a certified asbestos removal provider in San Diego such as CVE Corp.

  • It's Possible to Remove Asbestos from Your Body

Sadly no, this is not possible. It is not like salt where you just drink enough water you'll flush it out. Once fibers have entered your body, it is impossible to remove it. That is why you need to avoid dealing with asbestos yourself and use a professional service.
