Asbestos is a natural mineral that was used in a whole host of products (over 3,000). Everything from certain paper products to the most common construction building materials.
Asbestos was used in residential, commercial, industrial & government buildings and facilities all over the United States. The largest use was in structures built from the 1920's to the early 1980's. In 1978, the EPA banned its use on surfacing materials (popcorn ceiling texture & fireproofing) and thermal system insulation (piping insulation). Following that there was a temporary ban on other building materials. However, the ban was overturned in 1989. Today, you can still buy products that contain asbestos, often due to unaware consumers.
Roofing shingles are the most common building material still found to contain asbestos. Most commonly found in homes pre-1978 is the Popcorn Ceiling Texture, Vinyl Asbestos Floor Tile and Mastic or Asbestos Linoleum Flooring. Unfortunately prolonged asbestos exposure can lead to lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
