Dangers of Breaking Tile in Your Home

With the increasing popularity of remodeling television shows and do-it-yourself projects, many homeowners have been interested in exploring remodeling projects of their own. One of the most popular parts of a home to remodel is its floors. However, if you have tile in your home, particularly ceramic tile, you may be exposed to asbestos fibers if you break this tile. Asbestos is only dangerous if its fibers are broken, but in removing ceramic tiling from your home, you could be exposing you and your loved ones to these fibers.

The effects of asbestos exposure can be life-changing. If you or someone you know was unknowingly exposed to asbestos fibers and would like more information about who may be responsible for your exposure, contact an experienced asbestos attorney from Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955.

What If I Inhaled Asbestos Fibers?

Asbestos was often used in ceramic tile prior to 1980, when its use was formally banned in the United States. Sadly, many homeowners and home builders were exposed to asbestos without realizing it, and this threat continues today. If you have inhaled asbestos fibers, you could be facing conditions like:

  • Lung scarring
  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis
  • Other lung complications

Paying for the medical treatments necessary to combat these conditions can take its toll on any individual or family, but you may be entitled to financial compensation if another party is responsible for your exposure to this dangerous material.
