If you live in an older building, asbestos might have been used in its construction. Asbestos became common in shingles, tile, and insulation because it was cheap and durable. However, it is also a hazardous material and can put everyone in your building at risk of various health and safety concerns.
The most common way of being affected by asbestos is through inhalation. For instance, when asbestos building materials are disturbed during a renovation or demolition project, the fibers can escape into the air. Breathing in asbestos fibers can lead to health issues including:
- Lung cancer
