Article Summary: 

Asbestos is a heat-resistant and electrical insulating material that was widely used in building during the 20th century, despite the public's growing awareness of its health risks. Asbestos contains thin fibers that can be released into the atmosphere and, when inhaled, can lead to serious lung conditions. Asbestos is now banned in many countries. Removing asbestos requires special protective measures and trained staff, so it is crucial never to clean it yourself. Only professionals with the appropriate equipment should handle it. The removal process involves inspecting the material, encapsulating it if it is not damaged, or removing it if it is damaged. The professionals will turn off the ventilation system, cover the work area with plastic sheets, and wear safe coveralls with masks. After removal, asbestos materials will be disposed of in qualified landfills. Icon Restoration is a certified restoration company that offers mold and asbestos removal, among other services.
