You may be surprised to know that not all asbestos-containing products are dangerous. A health risk exists only when asbestos fibers are released from a product, into the air where they are inhaled. Products that are ‘friable’ – easily crumbled or made into dust that is easily airborne – are more dangerous than products in which binders immobilize the asbestos fibers.

So, how do you know whether you have an asbestos-related health risk on your hands?  You call us.
