Two Symptoms of Asbestos Exposure

Cancer, asbestosis, permanent lung function loss, and many more are symptoms of exposure to asbestos, and you may not develop these symptoms until years after first inhaling the fibres of this material. Once used in every aspect of construction, this material was banned in the late 1970s and is now something hunted down and removed wherever possible for the health and safety of those using a property. If you suspect you were exposed to asbestos or that you may become exposed at the start of an upcoming project in your property, it is always best to hire a professional to help you survey for asbestos and then have any existing material removed safely.


You may experience swelling of the face or neck after symptoms begin to manifest, often enough that you feel constantly bloated and can see the clear difference. This inflammation may be treated and controlled using modern medicine, but the best way to ensure you never experience this frustrating and dangerous symptom is to hire emergency asbestos removal services in Croydon after you first suspect the presence of the material.


One of the surest signs of asbestos exposure is an unusual crackling sound made whenever you take in and release a breath, and this is caused by a combination of factors inside your lungs. The best course of action will always be to seek immediate medical treatment and then to begin researching how you first came into contact with the material so that removal services may be called quickly.
