Only then can you understand the type of risk you face and how urgent it is to remove it.

Asbestos should only be removed by insured, licensed professionals. The removal of asbestos can expose damaging fibres and pose a high risk. Asbestos is a type of mineral used in construction until around 1987. It has insulating and fire-resistant qualities, which made it a popular building material. It has now been linked to a number of fatal or debilitating diseases such as cancer, lung scarring, mesothelioma and asbestosis. If you are planning to remove asbestos from your residence, a full inspection and assessment should be conducted by an experienced asbestos abatement company.
