Asbestos is a mineral fiber that is found in rock and soil. Because of its extreme fiber strength and ability to resist heat it has been used in a large variety of building & construction materials as a fire-retardant and for insulation purposes. Asbestos has been used in a wide array of manufactured goods, mostly in building materials (roofing shingles, floor and ceiling tiles, paper products, and cement products), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging, coatings , and gaskets .
Elevated concentrations of asbestos can become airborne after asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by cutting, sanding or various remodeling activities. Improper efforts to remove these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air in buildings, increasing asbestos levels and endangering people living in those homes.
Exposure to asbestos increases your risk of developing lung disease. That risk is made worse by smoking. In general, a persons chances of developing harmful health effects increase with greater exposure to asbestos, .
Disease symptoms may take many years to develop following exposure.
