Asbestos Exposure through Laundry

Asbestos has been used in a wide variety of industries for everything from glue for floor tiles to a major component and strengthening agent in concrete. It is used in brake pads for cars and a huge number of other products. This means that a huge number of people are potentially exposed to asbestos on a daily basis, and the people exposed are not the individuals working with the fiber.

When people go to work in factories or in a car repair shop, they frequently are required to wear a standard uniform. This ensures that the company can figure out who is an employee and who is not and also who belongs on the floor of the factory or in the garage and who doesn’t. For security reasons, uniforms are very important.

However, these uniforms, when they are taken home, present a huge risk to whoever is doing the laundry for the house. These uniforms, when they are dropped in the laundry basket or the dirty clothes chute, have the ability to expose the rest of the family or household to asbestos and lead to mesothelioma and asbestosis.

Laundry is particularly deadly when the person who does the laundry gives clothes a healthy shake to get the loose dirt out of them prior to tossing the clothes into the washer. This stirs up all of the fibers from the clothes and releases them into the air where they can be inhaled by the laundry doer.
