Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer affecting the lungs which scientists have confirmed is linked with exposure of asbestos fibres in the air.

Just a thought to consider before deciding to handle asbestos and do a renovation with no protection or training.
As soon as you disturb the asbestos containing materials during a demolition or renovation the fibres are released in the air to inhale and cause damage to the lungs.
If planning to demolish or renovate a home built before 1990, asbestos needs to be considered, as it was included in more than 3,000 building materials.




Common asbestos containing materials include:

  • Vinyl tiles and linoleum sheet flooring
  • Insulation
  • Ceiling
  • Interior walls
  • Stucco
  • Window Putty
  • Fireplaces
  • Drywall
  • Floors
  • Heating Ducts
  • Water Heaters
  • Pipe Insulation
  • Boilers
  • Garages
