Asbestos was a common building material used as both an insulator and fire retardant from the 1940s to the 1970s. Asbestos was very effective for both purposes, but it was discovered to be extremely hazardous to health when disturbed.
Removing asbestos yourself, without proper equipment, can have very serious negative health consequences—the most notable of which is mesothelioma, a rare but very deadly cancer. Asbestos fibers are extremely dangerous in dust form and inhaling them significantly increases your chances of lung ailments in the future.
You should never try to attempt asbestos removal yourself. Identifying asbestos fibers can be very difficult and properly removing them even more so. If you believe you have identified asbestos in your home, try not to overreact. It is not harmful to you if left undisturbed. The best thing you can do is to contact an asbestos remediation company that can properly evaluate your home or business and develop the proper course of action for its safe removal.
