Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral known to cause respiratory complications including Mesothelioma and Asbestosis. Asbestos was added to many products due to its insulating and structural properties, including construction and building materials.
If you are considering buying or selling a home or office space, renovating or demolishing a building built before 1986 you should consider testing suspect materials to mitigate future liabilities and additional costs to abate or encapsulate asbestos containing materials . Today, there are not as many products that contain the potentially harmful mineral. However, there are many older homes or buildings that could certainly have been constructed before 1986 or with outdated products containing asbestos.
