Certified Asbestos Abatement Contractor
Asbestos is not just thought to lead to serious health complications, which can lead to death. No, it is known to kill. Thousands of people die each year as a direct result from asbestos exposure in the US and the number is projected to rise. Unfortunately, most of these people work hard workers that handled this toxic, yet natural forming group of fibers. Globally asbestos is known for its toxic nature and lethal consequences of long-term exposure. This is exactly why it Asbestos has been completely banned from over 40 countries, such as Egypt, France, U.K., Ireland, Australia and many others. The US has discontinued the mining of asbestos but it continues to allow it with manufacturing, distribution and importation regulations. The fact that counties around the world have banned this product completely should be a good indication that you should not, ever, try to remove asbestos from a location of your concern. No matter how much research you do on the topic of self-removal, there is no way that you can guarantee the safety of yourself while completing the removal or the safety of the environment after you are done.
Maryland Recovery is an EPA Certified Asbestos Abatement Contractor.
