Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is composed of bundles of resilient fibres. It served as an excellent insulator prior to the 1970’s. In 1971 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared asbestos to be unsafe and a hazardous air pollutant causing health issues. When materials containing asbestos are disturbed or improperly removed the fibres can become airborne and often go unseen. This causes exposure without knowledge and could result in health problems 10 to 40 years after exposure to the asbestos.
Exposure to airborne friable asbestos may result in a potential health risk by breathing in asbestos fibers. Continued exposure can increase the amount of fibers that remain in the lung and fibers embedded in lung tissue over time may cause serious lung diseases. Asbestos fibers associated with these health risks are too small to be seen with the naked eye, and smokers are at higher risk of developing asbestos-related diseases.
A rare form of malignant cancer involving the lining of the lungs, chest or abdomen. This disease is always associated with asbestos exposure and is fatal.
Inflammation and scarring of fibrous lung tissue which results in a reduction in lung capacity.
Lung, stomach and colon cancer, as well as other pleural diseases, can also be asbestos-related.

Lead (known as Pb on the periodic table of elements) is a naturally occurring element found in rock and soil. It was once used extensively in a wide variety of products, which includes interior and exterior paints in industrial, governmental, institutional and commercial buildings. If untreated, the paint in old buildings will produce paint chips and lead dust.
The most common ways people are exposed to lead is through drinking contaminated water, inhaling lead particles in the air or ingesting lead dust or flakes, especially in the form of lead-based paint. When old paint deteriorates or is disturbed through sanding or demolition, lead dust or flakes are easily released into the air and collected on interior surfaces. They can also make their way into the soil.
Lead is a toxic metal that can cause significant health issues, mental illness or even death when ingested or inhaled. Because of the serious consequences of lead exposure, many laws have been enacted to address lead contamination.
Many older Industrial, governmental, institutional, and commercial structures built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint in woodwork, on walls, and exterior surfaces. Lead is highly toxic and can cause a range of health problems and damage to vital organs if absorbed into the body.
Leaving lead-based paint untreated can put industrial and commercial building owners and facility managers at risk. There is the possibility of fines and other legal action due to improper removal techniques.
