The Hidden Danger of Asbestos Build-Up During Renovations

May 19, 2024

Introduction: When you think of renovations, you envision fresh paint, gleaming floors, and the excitement of a newly renovated home or commercial space. However, lurking beneath the surface may be a hidden danger: asbestos build-up.

 Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral once prized for its fire-resistant properties, is now recognized as a significant health hazard. In this post, we’ll, explore why it’s crucial to have your HVAC system cleaned after renovations and how Modern PURAIR can help.

Understanding Asbestos Build-Up During Renovations

 Asbestos was commonly used in construction materials until the late 20th century when its health risks became widely known. While newer homes may not contain asbestos in their primary construction materials, the renovation process can disturb asbestos-containing materials, releasing harmful fibers into the air.  Asbestos exposure poses significant health risks, including respiratory issues, lung cancer, and mesothelioma—a rare but deadly form of cancer. When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed during renovations, microscopic fibers are released into the air and can be inhaled or ingested, leading to serious health consequences.

According to the American Cancer Society, there is no safe level of asbestos exposure, and even brief exposure can increase the risk of developing asbestos-related diseases over time. Therefore, it’s crucial to minimize exposure to asbestos fibers, especially during new construction or renovation projects.

Why it’s Important to Have Your HVAC System Cleaned After

 During renovation projects, dust, debris, and asbestos fibers can accumulate in your HVAC system’s ductwork. As the HVAC system circulates air throughout your home or commercial complex, these contaminants can be dispersed into the indoor air, posing a health risk to occupants.

Clean ducts are essential for maintaining indoor air quality and ensuring the proper functioning of your HVAC system. By having your ducts cleaned after renovations, you can remove accumulated debris and contaminants, including asbestos fibers, providing peace of mind and safeguarding the health of your family or employees.
