Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in trace amounts throughout the world. Humans have been using asbestos fibers for its fire retardant properties since the times of early Greek and Roman civilizations. Asbestos products can be found in many forms in homes throughout Calgary, you can find it in your floor tiles, fireproofing, duct and attic insulation, drywall mud, ceiling texture, and more.
