There are thousands of different types of mold, and while most forms of mold are not harmful, there are other types of mold that release harmful toxins that, when inhaled or ingested, can cause serious health risks.

Do you know what asbestos is, where it comes from, and when it poses a threat to you and your family’s health?
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a thin and fibrous silicate mineral that is very durable and was used in a wide variety of building materials throughout the 1980s. Asbestos is composed of millions of microscopic fibrils and there are 6 known asbestos mineral types known as carcinogens: Actionlite, Amphibole, Amosite, Chrysotile, and Crocidolite. When the material that contains asbestos is damaged or decomposing, the asbestos fibers become airborne and can be inhaled by anyone who is not wearing the proper protective gear.
The good news is that asbestos is only harmful when it has been disturbed. Keep in mind that if your property is damaged or you are planning on remodeling your property your health could be at risk if your property has asbestos-containing materials.
What Materials used Asbestos?

Asbestos can be found in electrical insulation and building insulation, mixed in with the cement, concrete, bricks, pipes or woven into fabric and mats.
