What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a natural occurring fibre.

It’s a powerful insulator and resistant to fire, heat and chemicals.

It was in thousands of building materials until the 90s.

It gained popularity because the flexible fibre was easy to add to products.

Materials that may contain asbestos include:

Heat and Noise Insulation
Drywall
Fire-Resistant Materials
Cement
Plaster
Tiles
Exterior Siding
Decks
Doors, Windows, Flooring and Ceilings

Why is Asbestos so Dangerous?

It’s a highly dangerous carcinogen (cancer-causing agent).

Effects include an incurable lung cancer called mesothelioma.

If disturbed, asbestos particles can release into the air and get into your lungs.

Even brief exposure may be harmful to your health.

Asbestos-related symptoms may not show up for decades.

Studies predict 19,400 new cases of mesothelioma by the end of the century.

Industrial exposures expect to cause 58% of future diagnoses.

The remaining 42% from other exposure types.

This includes home renovation or environmental exposure.

That’s why it’s crucial to remove it safely and responsibly.
