Monday, September 27th, 2010 | Categories: Toxic Mold,Indoor Air Quality | No Comments
Most people we know have heard of Asbestos. Som know that it is a naturally forming mineral that has amazing heat resistance capabilities and has been used for decades. Still others know that Asbestos is now understood as a cancer causing agent that attacks the lengs of those exposed to its fibers.
You have seent the TV commercials produced by the lawyers trying to find those unfortunate souls whos lives this mineral has taken. An ad we recently saw said “This substance (Asbestos) has been banned by the EPA since 1988”.
In fact Asbestos is still used in many products. Much of the worlds production is shipped to third world countries wo put it in products that are then shipped to us in the United States. Perhaps just as importantly many of our homes and businesses including schools have large quantities of Asbestos products in them. Typically found in insulation on Heating systems, boilers, ceiling texture and wall panels it still is present in our enviorment every day.
