    Asbestos myths

    It's important to understand how to properly identify and remove asbestos. Misinformation can have a negative effect on the health and wellbeing of individuals. Here are some of the most common asbestos myths:

    1. Newer buildings are free from asbestos
    Unfortunately, this is not exactly true. It was only after the year 2000 that the use of asbestos in construction ceased. If you’re the owner of a newer property built before 2000, we recommend contacting a professional for an examination and advice.

    2. Mesothelioma is contagious
    Mesothelioma is a type of cancer commonly affecting the lungs and appears about 20 to 40 years after exposure to asbestos. This condition is not contagious and cannot be transmitted via human contact. The risk of mesothelioma only arises if in close proximity or in contact with a contaminated object.

    3. You can get rid of asbestos from your body if you act quickly
    Damage to health depends on each individual. The symptoms of asbestos exposure are also not always immediately obvious. Speak with a medical professional if you are concerned about contact with asbestos.

    4. Once found, asbestos should be removed immediately
    As soon as asbestos is identified, contact an asbestos removal professional. You can contact Best 1 demolition on 029099 9115 for a free quote and expert advice. You should never immediately remove asbestos yourself. This service and disposal require expertise in order to minimize risks to yourself and the people around you.

    5. Wearing a mask will keep you safe
    Generic facemasks are not sufficient when working around areas affected by asbestos. Asbestos professionals wear designed masks for the purpose of minimizing damage to health.
