Asbestos is a heat-resistant fibrous silicate mineral that can be woven into fabrics and was used in many manufactured products, including building materials. If you remodel or demolish an older building, you may run into asbestos. Avoid touching or breathing asbestos-contaminated material and dispose of it correctly.
Questions about asbestos removal can be referred to Olympic Region Clean Air Authority.
