11 Signs of Asbestos Exposure

11 Signs of Asbestos Exposure

You have no doubt heard of asbestos before. Asbestos is a natural mineral product that’s resistant to heat and corrosion. Because of this, it was used extensively in the past in products such as insulation, cement, piping, and floor tiles. This is especially true in Bloomfield and the surrounding Michigan cities. Unfortunately, after being used for many years, it was discovered that asbestos is quite dangerous when breathed in. Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers, as is Mesothelioma. These diseases are fatal, the symptoms can range from mild to severe, and should be taken very seriously. With that in mind, here is what to look out for:

#1 Shortness of breath
#2 A persistent, dry cough
#3 Loss of appetite with weight loss
#4 Fingertips and toes that appear wider and rounder than normal (clubbing)
#5 Chest tightness or pain
#6 Tumors in the lungs
#7 Coughing or wheezing
#8 Fatigue or muscle weakness
#9 Trouble salivating
#10 Fever or night sweats
#11 Coughing up blood
#12 Swelling of the face and arms

What is probably most unfortunate is that asbestos-related symptoms usually don’t appear until many years after continued exposure. The effects of long-term exposure to asbestos typically don’t show up for 10 to even 40 years after initial exposure! That is why if you suspect you are living or working is a building with asbestos, you need to call Clean Cut Abatement right away instead of waiting to notice these symptoms in yourself.
