What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is actually a fibrous material that was used years ago to insulate buildings and homes.
It was a common practice to install asbestos around the early to mid 1900’s in most homes in Canada right up until about the mid 1990’s.
Since that time we have learned that asbestos can cause real serious health issues because of the fibres that tend to get released and filtered into the air in our homes.
Once this was discovered, the practice of installing asbestos was stopped and now it is illegal to install asbestos in home, building or industrial locations. In fact all and any asbestos must now be removed according to the home building laws in Canada.
