Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Ways to prevent mesothelioma at home

Families are often devastated upon learning that their loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma disease. As it has been proven that mesothelioma can be developed as a result of asbestos exposure, families at home may want to implement the following safety procedures to protect themselves from this fatal disease.

If renting an apartment unit, try to find out when the building was constructed. Buildings and homes that were made several decades ago likely have been built using asbestos-laden materials due to its fireproof properties. Families who suspect that their home contains asbestos materials should prevent the material from getting damaged to avoid dusts from the asbestos contaminating the air. Old floor tiles that contain asbestos, for example, should not be scratched by frequently moving furniture inside the house. For those who are unsure if their home contains asbestos, there are professionals who are trained to detect asbestos. Individuals who have loved ones whose workplaces are confirmed to have asbestos should clean themselves first and change clothes before going home to prevent bringing home asbestos.
