Asbestos has been used worldwide since the early 20th century, mainly for fireproofing and insulation. As time went by, it was clear that Asbestos is a huge health hazard that leads to significant respiratory diseases such as lung cancer and Asbestosis (a lung disease resulting from the inhalation of asbestos particles).
Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) in your home or business can be harmless when the material is not damaged or disturbed. A professional Asbestos removal company is required, once the property owner or a government-owned building is about to conduct renovations or upgrades to the property.
DIY asbestos abatement & removal is not recommended and, in some cases, illegal due to the health hazard of the ACM. Removing hazardous material such as asbestos in a safe manner required proper training, licensing, and equipment.
Common uses of Asbestos in the building industry:
- Attic insulation
- Pipe & duct insulation
- Floor tiles
- Construction Glue
- Roof shingles & sidings
- Fireplace insulation
- Boiler insulation
- Popcorn ceilings
