Asbestos is the term for minerals that are used in building materials. It is a fibrous material that is dangerous when inhaled. The particles are so small that it can become airborne and inhaled. From the 1930s until the 1980s, asbestos was popularly used as a building material. It was chosen because it is cheap, durable, and fire proof. It was later discovered to be highly dangerous and cause lung diseases. Exposure to this material can expose all members of the household to health risks. To minimize this risk, there has been a move to completely remove Class A and Class B asbestos from homes and commercial buildings.

B Class Asbestos Removal

B Class asbestos is also known as non-friable asbestos. This is the less dangerous type of asbestos. This is the classification for asbestos materials that have been mixed into other types of construction materials. This type of asbestos is considered low risk if it is not damaged or disturbed. Asbestos is only dangerous when the fibers are exposed and there is a chance of those said fibers being inhaled.  Non-friable asbestos can be found in vinyl tiles and cement products that are used on ceilings, walls, roofs.
