Be aware of asbestos!

 

Asbestos is the name of a group of similar minerals with separable, long, and thin fibers. Asbestos was added to a variety of products to strengthen them, or act as an insulator. The use of asbestos and asbestos products has dramatically decreased since the 1980’s, however, they are still found in many residential and commercial settings. It is a dangerous carcinogen and inhalation may cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. Asbestos poses the greatest danger when it becomes airborne and therefore any disruption of suspect materials may cause the fibers to dislodge and release into the air.
