Small Enough to Listen,
Big Enough to Deliver
Asbestos is a hazardous material that should be removed from your living or workspace as soon as possible. Exposure to even small amounts to asbestos is extremely dangerous and can lead to deadly diseases, including lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
Asbestos, once commonly used in construction, insulation, fire-proofing, and building materials, is today primarily known for the health risks it poses. Unsafe handling or exposure to asbestos will inevitably expose individuals to undetectable fibres which permanently lodge themselves in lungs. Asbestos should never be moved or handled by uncertified individuals.
Astra Management, based out of Calgary, Alberta, specializes in asbestos abatement and asbestos removal. We have the certified training and expertise to do this work efficiently and effectively, restoring the safety of your property.
Asbestos causes long-term, often fatal, health problems long after initial exposure and particularly when inhaled. Airborne asbestos fibres are not always visible, meaning individuals are often unaware they are inhaling dangerous fibres from asbestos material.
When asbestos from building materials and household items (ceiling tiles, insulation, ironing boards, etc.) are damaged or moved, fibres are jostled and become airborne. Once airborne, these asbestos fibres are easily, and un-noticeably, inhaled, penetrating lungs and the respiratory tract, causing long-term health problems and cancers. These illnesses include, but are not limited, to lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
Asbestos commonly exists in the building materials of homes and workplaces. People, unaware of the dangers asbestos poses, may come into contact with asbestos every day via commonly used household items. Though its use is increasingly banned today, Asbestos commonly exists in building materials made until the 1980s, contaminating workplaces and tens of thousands of Canadian homes, exposing individuals to these materials daily in their private and working lives and leading to thousands of deaths.
Trained asbestos abatement or removal is essential to the safety of your building occupants.
