More than surface deep – check your soil for asbestos

Asbestos was once popular as a fire retardant element in the construction of old buildings and houses. Ever since it was phased out in 1989 and permanently banned in 2003, office managers and homeowners have been arranging for asbestos removal services to protect their employees and family from health risks.

Asbestos in soil

Due to substandard practices and instances of people trying to remove asbestos themselves, some asbestos fibres get lost in the air and eventually drop on the ground. These bits and pieces of asbestos settle on the soil and are released again into the environment when disturbed.

Hazard to health and family

One of the dangers of asbestos is the confidence you have that it is not present in your current surroundings. When you feel assurance your kids can run around on the ground free from any exposure to asbestos, then it endangers them further. Children often let their curiosity get the better of them and this includes trying to play and enjoy the soil around your garden. Just a few seconds of asbestos fibre inhalation can start the process of damaging the lungs over a long period of time.
