Asbestos

 

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral which contains strong fibers and was used in many buildings from the 1950s to the 1990s. Asbestos contains tiny fibers which are released throughout the air and when breathed in, they can get trapped into the lungs and can cause serious health problems in the future.

Asbestos was used for:

  • Insulation for houses
  • Boilers, tanks and pipes
  • Sheet flooring
  • Floor tiles
  • Decorative finishes on walls and ceilings
