Unless you have your home or business tested for asbestos, the small fibres in the drywall or anywhere else in your home are invisible.
When asbestos fibres are disturbed, they can disintegrate into minute microscopic particles that can be inhaled and cause significant
disease and/or life-threatening illnesses such as mesothelioma.
Not only can asbestos be found in the drywall of your house or office, but it can also be found in insulation, cracked ceiling tiles, and
crumbling floor tiles.
Not all asbestos is the same; chrysotile (fibrous serpentine) and amphibole are the two main forms.Chrysotile asbestos is characterised
by long, flexible fibres and can be found in a variety of commercial items.
