ASbestos treatment options
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral which can be separated into individual fibres. Due to its strength, durability and fire resistance, asbestos was used in the past in construction and other industries, and was added to a variety of products.
Asbestos was often mixed with other substances, thereby making visual identification difficult. The only way to know for certain if asbestos is present is to have the material tested.
Health studies indicate that breathing high levels of asbestos fibres can lead to an increased risk of certain types of lung diseases. However, if asbestos fibres are properly enclosed within a product, there are no significant health risks. The potential danger occurs when asbestos fibres are disturbed, released into the air and then inhaled.
During the 1970s, the government began to impose regulations to eliminate the use of asbestos-containing materials and it is believed that no asbestos materials were used in construction subsequent to 1986.
