What is Asbestos & Why is it In My House? 

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral that, because of its fire-resistant properties, became a popular building material during the 19th century. It was used in a huge variety of ways, both deep in the structure of homes (like pipes, joint compounds, and insulation) and on the surfaces we see every day (like wallpaper, decorative plaster work, and tiling). 
The use of asbestos continued into the 1980's when its negative health impacts became clear. So, if your house was built before 1990—chances are high that asbestos is in your home.

Dangers of Asbestos

When asbestos-containing materials crumble, rip, or are otherwise broken apart, fibers that make up the mineral can be released into the air. Once inhaled, asbestos dust moves deep into the lungs, where it can cause inflammation, scarring, and a number of cancers and respiratory diseases.  
These problems can be caused by long-term exposure to asbestos, or by single exposures to high concentrations of asbestos dust—such as those generated by asbestos removal, demolition during construction, or remodeling work.
