Asbestos are minerals grouped together in natural fibrous bundles. Asbestos is made of silicon and oxygen (primarily) plus many different elements. There are 6 types of asbestos but only 2 types are common to the United States. The 2 common types of asestos are Chrysotile (white asbestos) and Amphibole (brown and blue asbestos; needle-like). Chrysotile is the most common. Asbestos is a danger in itself because it is in many places that are commonly used by people and pets and never known. Asbestos has been linked to cancer, so it is vital to have testing completed prior to any demolition or reconstruction of property. Once asbestos is exposed, the fibers become airbourne and invade everyone and everything. Asbestos is very serious and should NOT be taken lightly.
It is vital to the health of you, your family, and everyone around you to test before demolition or reconstruction!
