Your home should be a safe environment, let’s make sure it is.
Asbestos has been around for a while but it was officially mined for in the 1800s when the industrial revolution ramped up. It was the perfect material at the time to insulate things as it could withstand high temperatures and was flame retardant. The way it was made was broadened with a wave of new techniques to combine it with other materials. As soon as this happened it grew in its rise from one industry to the next.
When was it discovered as dangerous?
Germany recoded the first the carcinogenic properties that asbestos produced way back in the 1930s. Other countries refuted this evidence and did not believe such findings but by 1960 more serious diseases were being recorded such as mesothelioma being caused by the result of exposure to asbestos. Since 1983 mining for it ceased and the use of any type of asbestos was halted. By the early 2000s asbestos was banned and now other materials of safer quality are used as a substitute. Some developing countries unfortunately still use asbestos but you won’t find it used here in any new building work.
