By this time, everyone knows the dangers of asbestos. This fibrous material looks similar to corrugated cardboard but causes health issues such as asbestosis (scarring of the lung tissue) and mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of the lung cavity) when you breathe in the fibers.
So how does it correlate with your home? Asbestos was a very popular material that was used to build homes in the past due to its insulation properties. The material was used for many home purposes, but mainly as a way to insulate air ducts.
As the asbestos ages, it starts to deteriorate and break down. This causes the fibers to separate. Once these fibers are free, they begin to circulate throughout your home especially through the air ducts. The fibers are blown throughout your house which over time, causes health effects. Scientists have found that the asbestos material causes cancer mesothelioma as the fibers stick to your respiratory system.
