What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used in construction for many years. Asbestos fibers are very durable and fire resistant. It is also resistant to many chemicals and heat. This made asbestos a great material for all types of construction and remodeling. After asbestos became a hot topic for being dangerous, it was no longer used. However, many homes and businesses in the Salt Lake City area may still contain asbestos. If you have an older home or building, it is important to call a professional such as Asbestos Abatement Services for an asbestos inspection. Asbestos is safe as long as the products are in good shape, but once they start to break down, the dangers are abundant.
