Is Asbestos Testing Always Needed?
Asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals composed of thin, needle-like fibres. Exposure to asbestos causes several cancers and diseases, including mesothelioma and asbestosis.
Asbestos was integrated into many building products throughout commercial and domestic buildings, including asbestos cement roof tiles, asbestos cement roof under-cloaking, asbestos insulating board (AIB) ceiling and wall panels, vinyl and thermoplastic floor tiles.
