Asbestos is a building material that was used extensively until it was largely banned in 1977.  It continues to be used in gaskets, friction products, roofing materials, fireproofing materials and hundreds of consumer products that are used every day. It can be found in a variety of materials, including siding, roofing, floor tiles, insulation, millboard, cement sheets and cement. High levels of asbestos exposure can lead to an increased risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Asbestos remediation should be done by a licensed professional.
