The Dangers of Asbestos
Exposure to asbestos can be extremely hazardous for our Denver customers. When you inhale or ingest asbestos, the small mineral fibers can get trapped in your lungs and cause permanent health issues. Severe cases can cause inflammation, scarring, and possibly mesothelioma. It’s important to note the rarity of these circumstances. However, don’t risk your health and the health of the ones around you. Choose Rex Environmental in Denver to protect you with our asbestos sampling and testing services.
