“Keeping Your Space Healthy”

Mesothelioma Cancer

Asbestos exposure increases the risk of mesothelioma cancer considerably.

Because there are no signs of exposure that can be identified before a disease develops, it is important to have your space professionally tested to ensure there are no traces of asbestos present. MoldPro is committed to keeping your space safe from the dangerous effects of asbestos, and we are proud to offer inspection and remediation.

What is Mesothelioma Cancer?

Mesothelioma cancer is a rare, generally incurable, and asbestos-related cancer caused by inhaled asbestos fiber that forms in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart. Once asbestos is inhaled, the body has a hard time getting rid of the fibers, which become lodged in tissues. Over time these fibers can become cancerous. People exposed to asbestos at home, work, or in the military have a higher risk of developing the cancerous disease.
