ABOUT ASBESTOS

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was a popular building material from the 1950s to 1990s. It was used extensively because it is an insulator, has good fire protection properties, has tensile strength, and is resistant to chemical erosion.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to know if you’re home or business has asbestos because it is often mixed with other materials. However, if your property was a building built before 1990, it's likely that at least some parts of the building will contain asbestos.
