What are the Health Problems Associated with Asbestos?
While some asbestos fibres are more dangerous than others, all pose serious health risks when exposed. Asbestos fibres can be released through various ways - after repairs, maintenance and renovations, causing a disturbance in asbestos-containing structural materials. The damage to someone’s health from exposure to the fibres is dependent on a few variables:
- amount of asbestos fibres in the air
- how long the exposure to asbestos lasted
- how often you were exposed to asbestos
- the size of the asbestos fibres inhaled
- the amount of time since your first exposure
- the type of asbestos fibre
Depending on the combination of these factors, health risks could range from mild to severe. The main concern is the damage it causes to lungs, once the fibres get lodged and impair lung function. Health risks that have often been observed in individuals exposed to asbestos have included:
- asbestosis - a scarring of the lungs that makes breathing difficult
- mesothelioma - an otherwise rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity
- lung cancer
- cancer of the larynx
- ovarian cancer

Monitoring the conditions of any material containing asbestos is highly recommended to ensure it does not become airborne. If the product has deteriorated, it is essential to not to further disturb it and have a certified Asbestos expert inspect your home immediately and remove the asbestos properly and return your property to a safe environment.
