Asbestos is a highly hazardous material which was commonly used as a building material until the late 1970s. Because of this many older buildings still contain asbestos in their walls, floors and ceilings and as insulation around pipes. If your property was constructed before the 1980s it could be well worth getting it checked out to see if it holds any asbestos within.
It is believed that over 30 million buildings in the U.S contain asbestos in some form or other. The only way to remove the threat asbestos poses to health is to act to remove the asbestos as soon as possible.
If you are worried about the presence of asbestos, you should aim to have it removed. However, due to the health risk that asbestos poses, you should never attempt to identify or remove asbestos yourself, as this could place you and others in the building at risk.
When asbestos is disturbed it can crumble into a dust like substance which is easily inhaled, leading to difficulty breathing and irritation of the throat, lungs and skin. In extreme cases, inhaling asbestos spores can lead to the development of a rare but aggressive lung cancer called mesothelioma. It is estimated that around 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year.
