Asbestos is characterized by fine, long, thin fibers that can be separated and are extremely dangerous if inhaled. Asbestos may be present in older buildings because it was widely used in construction materials throughout the United States prior to 1980.
Asbestos building materials don’t pose any danger unless the fibers are dispersed into the air. When inhaled, asbestos can cause several diseases that can be life threatening. You should always hire an Asbestos removal company to handle asbestos.
