While homes in the United States are no longer constructed with asbestos, many older buildings still contain this dangerous building material. If you are considering a home renovation or building project that requires contact with asbestos, it is crucial that you hire an asbestos abatement specialist to handle the job. Here are some of the reasons why you should avoid contact with asbestos at all costs:
Asbestos Fibers are Hazardous to Your Health
The top reason to avoid contact with asbestos is that this material is a known carcinogen. Asbestos is comprised of many tiny fibers made of different types of minerals. When the asbestos is touched or disturbed, these fibers are released into the air. Breathing these fibers into the lungs can cause scarring and irritation, which will eventually lead to a deadly form of cancer.
Asbestos Fibers are Invisible
Because asbestos fibers are microscopic, they are invisible to the human eye. This means that, when asbestos is released into the air, you will have know way of knowing that you are breathing in the fibers. The airborne fibers remain in the air for a long period of time, so the risk of hazardous exposure can linger for a long time, with no visual clues at all.
Asbestos Fibers Remain in Your Body
When you inhale asbestos fibers, these durable particles are not broken down by the body. Instead, they remain in the lungs for a very long period of time. Because your body cannot break the fibers down, your lungs will experience permanent, long lasting damage. With extended or high levels of exposure, asbestos inhalation can cause bodily harm that is both immediate and long lasting.
For your asbestos abatement, testing, or consulting needs, trust the experts at DASO Cleaning & Restoration. Our New York Certified Asbestos Removal Technicians have the skills and tools needed to safely handle this dangerous substance.

As temperatures rise in the summertime, so do the number of bed bugs. These parasitic pests love the heat and will reproduce at a faster rate during warmer weather. To protect yourself and your home from the risk of a bed bug infestation this summer, follow these simple tips:
Be Aware When You Travel
During the summer months, many people choose to take travelling vacations. Travel is one of the most common ways that bed bugs spread, so it is important to be aware when you are away from home. If you are staying in a hotel or other unfamiliar place, always check the mattress and linens for signs of bed bugs. When you host guests in your own home, be sure to thoroughly clean the linens to be sure that they have not unknowingly brought bed bugs into your home.
Clean Out Clutter
While bed bugs come to your bed to feed at night, they usually live in other parts of the home. Areas with untouched clutter are ideal places for a bed bug colony to hide. Along with removing clutter, also be sure to regularly clean spaces such as bookshelves, closets, and under the bed, which are all places that bed bugs can hide.
Purchase Bed Bug Resistant Items
To protect your bed and linens from bed bugs, you can purchase special encasements that will destroy any bed bug populations. Once you have encased your bed, be sure to wash and heat-dry your sheets and clothing on a regular basis. The heat from the dryer will destroy any bed bugs that are living on fabric.
The best way to protect your home from bed bugs at any time of the year is to schedule a bed bug inspection. At DASO, our team of bed bug extermination specialists can help you prevent bed bugs from entering your home. To schedule an appointment with our New York bed bug experts, give us a call at (718) 893-0252.
