What is Asbestos?
What is Asbestos used for?
If your house was built in the early 80’s, then there is a high chance that asbestos might be present in your house. Asbestos was one of the most popular building materials that were used at the time. In the intervening years, study after study on the subject has shown that asbestos is very dangerous to anyone who gets exposed to it over a period of time. Asbestos has since been banned from its use in the construction of new buildings. However, this only covers new buildings. In order to remove asbestos from your home or building, you must contact a certified restoration company like Canada's Restoration Services.
