What is Asbestos?
Asbestos can be made from six naturally occurring silicate minerals, which all have in common their long, thin fibrous crystals that can be easily released by abrasion and other processes.
Asbestos was used as a highly-effective and inexpensive fire-retardant material and thermal and acoustic insulator. Asbestos was used extensively in Commercial, Industrial and Home construction from the early 1940s through the 1970s.
We now know that prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to lung disease. When disturbed, tiny abrasive asbestos fibers are easily inhaled, which damages lung tissue and can cause cancer.
In commercial office buildings, industrial plants and residential structures built prior to 1975, asbestos is most commonly found as thermal insulation on basement boilers and pipes. Unfortunately, it can also be found in a myriad of other locations such as:
• Blown-in attic insulation
• Vinyl floor tiles
• Glue that attaches floor tiles to concrete or wood
• Some forms of linoleum
• Window caulking and glazing
• Roofing material (usually on flat roofs but occasionally on shingles)
• HVAC duct insulation (usually found in corrugated or flat paper form)
• Siding material
