Asbestos removal company Los Angeles CA
Asbestos is one of those horrible substances that you just don’t want to mess around with in Los Angeles CA or anywhere else, for that matter. It’s composed of mineral fibers that, when released into the air and inhaled, can enter the lungs and cause major health problems, including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
History of asbestos use
Asbestos was used throughout homes and commercial properties since the 1800s up until the 1970s, when it became heavily regulated by the government. Before the 1970s, products containing asbestos were absolutely ubiquitous because it was cheap, had excellent insulating properties, is fireproof, and completely flexible, so it could easily be accommodated into many products’ designs. Asbestos was used in almost all commercially-available products.
When World War II hit, asbestos was used extensively in the shipbuilding industry because it can withstand very high temperatures without becoming damaged. According to the Mesothelioma Center website, certain positions put workers in regular direct contact with asbestos—shipfitters, machinists, pipefitters, electricians, boilermakers, and painters. Many veterans of World War II and the Korean War continue to deal with harmful effects of asbestos exposure, and some develop serious health conditions such as mesothelioma or lung cancer as a result of exposure many years ago.
The Mesothelioma Center website also explains that “California’s abundant asbestos deposits and countless shipyards contribute to the state’s No. 1 rank in the United States for mesothelioma and asbestosis deaths.
