What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos AbatementAsbestos is a generic term for a group of minerals known for their strength, flame and heat resistance, and seemingly indestructible qualities.

Once considered a “miracle mineral,” asbestos was used for many years in building construction. Asbestos was used in acoustic ceiling, heater ducting, insulation, floor tiles, sheet flooring, flooring mastic, exhaust flues, exterior siding, roofing materials, roof mastic, and plaster walls, and other building materials.

Because of its indestructible qualities, asbestos is harmful to the human body. The body cannot digest, break down, or change asbestos; it can only attempt to encapsulate it with scar tissue. Several types of asbestos were banned by the EPA in the mid 1970’s due to concern over the health effects, especially cancer, which is associated with exposure asbestos materials.

When planning demolition, renovation, or remodeling projects, owners and contractors must be concerned with risking exposure to asbestos dust.
