What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a general classification of 6 naturally occurring minerals that continue to be mined to this day, and in some cases, combined with other materials to be manufactured into flooring, insulation, siding, wall systems, roofing etc. In some construction, asbestos is primarily used because of its fire-retardant capabilities, but most often we see it used in materials because it provides a less expensive way to strengthen various construction materials such as floor tiles, vinyl sheet flooring, joint compound/texture, or to provide a decorative effect. Proper asbestos testing can identify the presence of asbestos materials in your home.
