Asbestos

Asbestos

Because it is fire retardant and an excellent insulator, asbestos was widely used in the construction of homes until the 1970s and early 1980s. Heating pipes and duct insulation, floor tiles, siding, ceiling tiles and even plaster may contain asbestos. Asbestos becomes harmful when it is disturbed and tiny particles become airborne. When inhaled asbestos particles can damage lung tissue and cause severe health problems (such as lung cancer).
