What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a heat-resistant fibrous silicate mineral that can be woven into fabrics and used in fire-resistant or insulating materials. Asbestos removal should only be done by certified professionals. A certified professional can ensure your home isn’t contaminated with Asbestos dust.
Most commonly used for its heat resistant properties, Asbestos is made up of a family of six fibrous silicate minerals. It has historically been used in fabrics, fire-resistant products and insulation. If Asbestos is inhaled over a prolonged period of time, one can develop serious illnesses like Cancer, Mesothelioma and Asbestosis.
