Asbestos is a highly toxic material which can lead to health complications including lung cancer if you breathe it in. Many of the more serious health issues connected with breathing in asbestos dust lead to death.The only people that should attempt to remove or otherwise tamper with materials containing asbestos are fully trained, professional licensed contractors.
Only with the protection of full body protective clothing, including masks, can asbestos be removed, so never try to complete the task yourself.
One of the problems with asbestos is it can be hard to know where it is in your home or another building you are responsible for. While common places to find asbestos include old garage roofs and artex wall and ceiling coverings, it’s always a good idea to get expert assistance if you have the slightest doubt in your mind, as materials can be tested for asbestos content (or declared safe).
