Asbestos is a mineral fiber that is used in many buildings and can also be found commonly in building construction materials.

When the microscopic fibers are inhaled they become a serious health problem and can lead to mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Asbestos must be removed in a safe and legal way.
