What Are Toxic Materials?
Chemicals that can poison you or cause serious health problems are referred to as toxic substances. Toxic waste, also known as hazardous waste, consists of waste materials that have been discarded or leaked into our environment, polluting our atmosphere and waterways and causing a lasting risk to the health of humans and other living creatures.
They can pose physical hazards such as corrosion, fire and explosion, as well as physical problems such as respiratory and skin irritation. In some cases, they can cause congenital disabilities or even lead to the death of those affected. Toxic materials include:
- PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls)
- Flammable Substances
What Causes Toxic Contamination?
Lead and asbestos were once commonly used in the construction of older buildings and can cause significant health problems if not addressed. Flooding from seawater, rivers, streams and groundwater containing toxic waste can also require treatment of your home or building. And natural and human-made accidents can result in the spilling or leakage of toxic substances that must be removed from your building or property.
