Here’s What You Should Know About Asbestos

Asbestos is a mineral that many manufacturers used as an effective insulator and fire-resistant material for many decades.

In 1978, it was widely banned for commercial use in Texas because it was discovered to be highly dangerous.

Asbestos fibers can be up to 80 times smaller than the width of a human hair. They are easy to inhale in without realizing it.

These fibers can eventually cause severe lung problems, including:

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • And other lung complications

That’s why the Texas legislature banned the substance in 1978. However, buildings constructed before 1980 were not under strict regulations. And some manufacturers still use asbestos.

Many commercial facilities may have the substance in their construction materials unaware.

Asbestos containing materials may include:

  • Roofing felts
  • Spray-on fireproofing
  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Popcorn ceiling
  • Sheetrock lining
  • And more
