Asbestos becomes dangerous once the fibres are disturbed

 Asbestos becomes dangerous once the fibres are disturbed, become airborne and then inhaled. This can happen if you're sanding, drilling, cutting or sawing asbestos.

Don't risk the possible health effects of asbestos exposure. There is no known safe minimum level of exposure to asbestos fibres.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen, and inhaling asbestos fibres is associated with diseases including pleural disease, asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer.

If you're renovating an older home that may contain asbestos, call an asbestos professional for an assessment before you start. It's just not worth the risk.

Remember that you have a legal responsibility not to harm those around you.
