Let’s Talk About…
What IS Asbestos, Anyway?
Asbestos is a heat-resistant fiber that can be woven into tough, fire-resistant building materials such as flooring and roof tiles. Builders use a variety of asbestos-containing-materials in construction, which are considered safe when encapsulated within binding materials and properly handled. The problem comes when asbestos-containing materials age, deteriorate, are demolished or otherwise broken up so that the asbestos fibers are released into the environment where people can breathe them in.
Breathing in asbestos has been shown to cause mesothelioma and asbestosis, and is suspected to cause or worsen numerous other serious respiratory diseases. For this reason, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Occupational Health and Safety Administration and most states have implemented strict rules governing handling and disposal of asbestos containing materials, as well as severe consequences for violators.
