Asbestos is a general term describing a variety of naturally-occurring fibrous minerals. Asbestos materials are classified into two categories: friable and non-friable materials. When airborne, these materials are known to cause a number of health problems including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.

Where can it be found?

Asbestos materials can be found in a number of building structures and residential properties. When asbestos-contaminated material is disturbed, it can release the asbestos fibers and cause massive disruption to the environment.
