For many years, asbestos was used in home insulation, pipe wrap, drywall, flooring, ceiling tiles, roof tiles, and many other building products due to its resistance to fire and its above average insulating properties. In 1987, asbestos use was banned in many common products due to significant health concerns, though buildings with asbestos-containing materials were not required to remove them unless they posed an imminent threat.
When damaged, materials with asbestos can produce microscopic asbestos fibers that easily become airborne. As these fibers land on skin or are inhaled into the lungs, they can cause several possible health problems, including:
- Asbestos warts or other skin problems
- Lung irritation and impairment
- Asbestosis, which is a permanent scarring and inflammation of lung tissue
- Mesothelioma, which is a particularly aggressive form of lung cancer
Many building materials containing asbestos were used throughout the country prior to 1987. While removal is only necessary if the materials start cracking, crumbling, or shedding dust, if you suspect there is asbestos in your home our business, it is a good idea to have it tested.
