serv-mitchIt’s common knowledge that asbestos is dangerous to your health. What may not be as well-known, however, is that when you suspect some building materials in your home or business contain asbestos, the best practice is often to leave them alone – provided that they aren’t damaged.

Unfortunately, that isn’t always an option. Sometimes, buildings are damaged by fire, flooding, earthquakes, or even human error. When that happens, it becomes necessary to remove the offending asbestos, because damaged building materials containing asbestos release harmful asbestos fibers to the air, when they cause numerous ailments.

For many, when a catastrophe happens, insurance steps in to help cover the bill- including for the removal and replacement of dangerously damaged asbestos-containing materials. As soon as you suspect damage to a building, call your insurance and make a claim immediately. Making a timely claim is important, because the faster the asbestos is removed, the smaller are the chances of adverse health effects.
