In various parts of the world, asbestos was commonly used as a building material for both commercial and residential constructions. In fact, such material can be found in the majority of homes built prior to the early 1990s. Since we now understand the health risks associated with being exposed to asbestos based products, its use has been banned in Canada.
Best known for its fire-resistant and insulating properties, asbestos is a fibrous material, in either serpentine form (chrysotile) or in amphibole form (which includes anthophyllite, amosite, crocidolite, tremolite, and actinolite). When asbestos (in rock form) is refined and woven in strands, an element similar to a fabric can be created. Because of these characteristics, it was long thought to be the perfect element to use in the production of home insulation, brake linings, roofing shingles, floor & ceiling tiles, cement pipes, safety apparel, theatre curtains and other building materials.
When inhaled, small fibers can get logged in the lungs and lead to a variety of serious health problems such lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Because such risks to your health exist, in the event that asbestos is found in your home, you must quickly seek the help of professionals to perform asbestos abatement.
