Before it was banned from being used in the manufacture of most household products, asbestos was widely used in the US. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made of electricity, heat, and corrosion-resistant fibers. These qualities made it a popular component used as an insulation material in construction.
The mineral is quite flexible, and when cement, plastic, paper, or cloth are combined with asbestos, they become stronger. Still, despite its useful qualities, the mineral is quite toxic. Inhaling or ingesting asbestos particles can cause a rare type of cancer, mesothelioma, and other health problems. As such, it’s important to stay away from the mineral and, if need be, hire an asbestos professional to test the material you think might have asbestos.
Over the years, there have been efforts to ban asbestos use in the US, but the mineral isn’t banned yet. Organizations like OSHA have regulated the mineral use, and any product containing over 1% asbestos is labeled as asbestos-containing. Asbestos detected at less than 1% is not considered asbestos containing material, but should still be considered a potential health hazard when handled incorrectly.. AHERA, Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, has also set out rules and regulations for inspecting public spaces to ensure no asbestos exposure.
