What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of soft and flexible fibers that are resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. These qualities make the mineral useful, but they also make asbestos exposure highly toxic.
Asbestos is an effective insulator, and it can be used in cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to make them stronger. But when asbestos dust is inhaled or ingested, mineral fibers can become permanently trapped in the body.
Over decades, trapped asbestos fibers can cause inflammation, scarring and eventually genetic damage. A rare and aggressive cancer called mesothelioma is almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos also causes other forms of cancer as well as progressive lung disease.
What is Mould?
Mould is a type of fungus. These small organisms can be black, white, orange, green, or purple and live almost anywhere indoors and outside. Moulds thrive on moisture and reproduce through lightweight spores that travel through the air. You’re exposed to mould every day. They’re usually harmless in small amounts. But when they land on a damp spot in your home, they can start to grow. They release spores that you might breathe in. If you inhale a lot of spores, it could make you sick, especially amongst the young, old or immune deficient/sensitive community.
Found in over 3000 building materials, asbestos can be hiding in plain sight. Breathing in asbestos fibers can cause serious health effects including lung disease and cancer.
If you're planning to renovate or demolish a home built before 1995, as a homeowner you should talk to a professional about planning for asbestos testing and proper removal, if required. While there are obvious costs involved in identifying and removing asbestos, doing so will ensure the health and safety of everyone in your home.
Unfortunately, it's hard to know if you have asbestos in your home because often it mixed with other materials. However, if you are renovating or demolishing a home built prior to 1995, it's highly likely that at least some parts of the home will contain asbestos. Asbestos is only harmful when material is disturbed. This is why it is so important to have this work done by a professional.
Asbestos can be found in (may include other materials), vinyl sheet flooring, floor tiles, duct insulation, pipe insulation, plaster, drywall(joint compound), vermiculite insulation, stucco and transite.
The safe removal and disposal of asbestos is a shared responsibility, and homeowners have a role to play. If you are renovating or demolishing a home that was built pre 1995, the key steps to protecting everyone's health and safety is to identify asbestos containing materials in the home and to have them safely removed by a professional prior to renovating or demolishing the home.
