What is Fiberglass?
By letting fiberglass spread all over their homes, many people have lost some of their most treasured possessions. Here's a tragic account of how a Prescott Valley family found fiberglass in their children's beds and how they had to throw out a lot of their soft furniture.

You need not wait until you become the latest victim of fiberglass contamination to realize what a menace fiberglass contamination can be.
Let us help you out…
Fiberglass is a fiber-reinforced plastic made from glass fibers firmly dipped in resin. You can get fiberglass by combining particles of glass filaments and the resin, adding resin to the glass.
The resin will be added to the fiberglass by placing them randomly across each other to ensure a tough, strong, durable, and less brittle material.
Fiberglass is used in residential and commercial building insulation, filters, and car body panels. It can be used via hand laying, spraying, and compression molding.
So, what's the bad buzz about fiberglass contamination?
Fiberglass contaminants can cause some negative side effects. It's best to test for fiberglass to find out if your air is contaminated and how to treat it.
Here are some side effects of prolonged exposure to fiberglass.
* Respiratory system issues: Too much exposure to fiberglass can cause respiratory problems and trigger underlying issues like asthma.
* Eyes, Nose, and throat irritation: fiberglass particles cause irritation to the nose and throat and cause eye redness.
* Skin Irritation: Direct skin contact with fiberglass can cause itching, rashes, and other skin irritations.
* Increased cancer risk: Even though this is still subject to debate by scientists, continuous exposure to fiberglass particles may increase the chances of cancer in the body.
* Structural damage: Exposure to fiberglass will weaken the building structures over time, causing structural damage if uncontrolled.
Note: Fiberglass is a common material used in bedding and mattresses. It is woven into mattress covers to act as a flame retardant.
If fiberglass remains inside a mattress or new bedding, it is okay. But if it gets out, it can wreak havoc on your house and your health. That is why it is safe to always read the tags on your mattress and bedding.
Fiberglass Testing: What's in it for you?
Fiberglass can be found anywhere in your home or workspace. Here are reasons to test for fiberglass.
