How can you be exposed to Asbestos?
Asbestos fibers may be released into the air by the disturbance of asbestos-containing material during product use, demolition work, building or home maintenance, repair, and remodeling. In general, exposure may occur only when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way to release particles and fibers into the air.
When this happens, asbestos is said to be “friable.” Friable asbestos is extremely dangerous to human health and should always be removed by a professional. It can cause lung cancer (mesothelioma), asbestosis, and many other health problems.
