Asbestos, which is common in many buildings, is a heat-resistant mineral that is used in many fire-resistant and insulting materials. It can be woven into fabrics or can be spray-applied. Asbestos was also used in a type of ceiling called “popcorn” or “cottage cheese” ceiling. This was banned in the United State in 1978. Unfortunately the ban allowed contractors to use the rest of the product and it is since in houses built as late 1986.
As long as the asbestos does not become dislodged it does not pose a threat to humans. If the asbestos is loose in the air it can be inhaled which may cause asbestosis. Asbestosis is a serious condition which causes the lung tissue to scar and could lead to cancer. Asbestos is also the only known factor that causes malignant mesotheliamoa which is a cancer that affects the lung or abdomen tissue lining.
