Hazardous Materials Consultants in Kamloops, BC
Asbestos is a cancer and lung disease hazard. Once considered the miracle mineral, it was commonly added to building products due to its high tensile strength and resistance to heat and corrosion. Asbestos can be found in a large variety of building materials including: drywall (joint mud), attic insulation, roofing material, wall insulation (cinderblock), linoleum flooring, textured ceilings/walls and ceiling tiles.
When asbestos containing building materials are disturbed due to renovations or unforeseen events, the asbestos fibers within the building materials can become airborne, leaving the carcinogenic dust free-floating, where it can become inhaled by a renovation crew and/or any other building occupants.
