Asbestos is toxic substance that at one time was widely used in the construction business. It is quite fortunate that the government stopped construction companies from using asbestos materials in the year 1978. However, many homes and buildings were built before that time. If your house was built before that year, it is more than likely that asbestos materials are present in your home.
You want to be sure not to touch or handle this material because it can be harmful to your health if you come in contact with it or inhale it. Some conditions that may develop include skin rashes, redness of the skin, breathing difficulty and lung and throat problems.
It can also cause damage to the larynx. If you exposed to this hazardous substance for a lengthy amount of time, an aggressive type of lung cancer called mesothelioma could develop, which is why you should never disturb this material.
