Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral that is a naturally occurring, fibrous material and is found in many older homes and commercial buildings. These fibers were used extensively in construction materials because of their strength, flexibility, and heat resistance. Although, now there are many regulations put forth by government agencies to protect people from this hazardous material.
There are several diseases caused by asbestos exposure, including COPD, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Asbestos containing materials (ACM) in both residential and commercial properties must be removed by the professionals.
