Homeowner's Guide to Asbestos

Asbestos is a heat-resistant fibrous silicate mineral. The fibers are microscopic and are seen with an electron microscope. Asbestos is still added to products such as vinyl floor tile, cement pipe and asphalt roofing. Disturbing or damaging asbestos is what can cause the fiber to become airborne and inhaled.

The human body cannot absorb or dissolve these fibers and if inhaled they can become lodged in the lungs. This can cause scar tissue and cancer cells can develop over years.

Exposure to asbestos is the only know cause of the very aggressive cancer know as mesothelioma.

Natural disasters such as wildfires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and severe thunderstorms can disrupt the asbestos in your home. The Lanier Law Firm has created a helpful guide for homeowners to determine if there is asbestos, different options to protect yourself from being exposed and hire a professional.
