Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Strip mall demolition postponed for asbestos abatement

The demolition of a Sears Essential Plaza strip mall has been postponed for weeks because of asbestos findings.

After the demolition the Sears Essential Plaza is planned to be turned into a new police headquarters. Before the demolition begins an asbestos abatement must be done; this will take between four and six weeks. After this is complete, the county will issue a permit to allow the demolition. Officials say that the bulk of the asbestos is in the floor tiles and some of the steel in the two buildings.

If asbestos is disturbed it can become a health hazard. Once asbestos particles are inhaled they lodge into a person’s lung and can remain dormant for years until symptoms show. Asbestos exposure is the leading cause of mesothelioma.
