The Consequences Of Not Removing Asbestos From Your Home

The Consequences Of Not Removing Asbestos From Your Home

Everyone wants to save money, but not removing asbestos from a contaminated home is not the wisest way of going about it. If you live in a house that you know has asbestos, and you are still adamant about not getting it removed, then you are not only endangering your own health but of those around you as well. Here are some of the possible consequences of your actions, and why getting professional asbestos removal can actually save you more money in the long run.

Asbestos Removal Is Cheaper Than Medical Bills

Though it will cost you a lot of money to remove the asbestos from your home, especially if you live in a large house built way back when it was still legal to use asbestos, which is between the 1950s and 1980s; if you happen to live in a house that is rather old, you can expect asbestos to be everywhere.

If you leave the asbestos alone, after some time they will start to deteriorate and turn into dust. And, this asbestos dust is the one that you should be wary of because they cause different kinds of chronic diseases like asthma, pneumonia, and it can also cause lung cancer and mesothalioma (a unique cancer caused by asbestos exposure); as you can see, the possible ailments that you can get from asbestos can and will cost thousands of dollars in medical care; and the bad news is that only a few were able to survive once they got sick from the asbestos.

You Can Lose Your Home

If your next door neighbors find out that you still have asbestos in your home, and you are not planning to do anything about it, they will report you to the authorities. Your neighbors’ lives are also in danger because the asbestos fibers can travel from your house to theirs thanks to the wind. Not only will you get a costly fine from the local government, there is also a chance that your house gets condemned and you are forced to leave.

How Much Does Asbestos Removal Cost?

In hindsight, if you choose the option of removing asbestos from your home, then you will only be paying just the one time for the service. Once all of the asbestos is out of your house and properly disposed of, it will never pose a threat to anyone ever again; and you can also live in your home without any fear whatsoever.

The best part is that there are times when the complete removal of the asbestos is unnecessary. If the asbestos inspector found out that the asbestos products in your house are still in rather good condition, you can choose to have them encapsulated instead. This procedure is much lower in cost as compared to asbestos removal, and it does not cause quite as much damage as well.
