Asbestos Abatement – Why It’s Important for Missouri and Kansas Residents

Asbestos abatement is a necessary funciton in Kansas and Missouri due to the area’s historical use of asbestos containing materials. SMART Environmental Services in Kansas City offers professionally trained asbestos removal for residential and commercial properties.  

How Does Asbestos Affect Kansas and Missouri?

Asbestos is a well-known risk in Kansas and Missouri due to our urban areas and industrial development that occurred during the 1900s. Asbestos was widely used in materials for it’s heat, chemical and water resistance. 

The Mesothelioma Center shares that “Every year, 1.3 million American workers in construction and general industry alone are exposed to asbestos on the job.” 

Kansas and Missouri have several manufacturing plants, industrial sites and military bases which are known sources of asbestos materials. states that “Asbestos insulated machinery in the state’s first chemical plant, Harcros, founded in 1917 in Kansas City. Kansas City continued to open chemical and power plants over the following decades.”

What Are the Health Risks to Asbestos?

Asbestos containing materials are prevalent in structures built before the 1980s. This means many homes, offices and industrial buildings are at risk. These materials, once disturbed, become quite dangerous. If the process of asbestos removal is not completed correctly, it can contaminate property or the air, leading to inhalation by humans.   Inhalation of asbestos fibers can also lead to various lung conditions including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
