We have the equipment needed to perform silica dust testing and determine whether these particles are present.
The process of cutting, grinding, or sawing rock, concrete, brick, mortar, stone, and other materials used in construction can yield some unpleasant side effects. Not only is the process quite noisy, but it can also produce tiny particles known as silica dust. These particles are also referred to as respirable crystalline silica, and the name indicates that they can be inhaled by those performing the task at hand. Additionally, anyone in a space where the particles were produced could be exposed to them.
Breathing silica dust has been linked to the development of a range of diseases, including lung cancer, kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and silicosis. If your home or business has undergone extensive renovations, the work performed within its walls may have resulted in the production of this harmful substance. Your health and the health of those around you could be at risk. Knowing what you’re exposed to is important, as is removing any concerning substances from spaces where people live and work.
