Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral, was heavily used in construction for years. It’s fibers are extremely durable and resistant to fire, chemicals, and heat. This made asbestos a “miracle material” for all types of construction and remodeling, but this was before the serious health risks that occur when asbestos materials begin to breakdown became known. Once people realized how dangerous the effects were, asbestos stopped being used in newer construction. If you have an older residential or commercial property, there is a possibility that it has asbestos. It’s important to call a certified asbestos company like Restoration North to perform an asbestos inspection to verify if your home or business has asbestos materials in it.
