There are several minerals commonly known as asbestos. These minerals can be used to make products strong, long-lasting and fire-resistant.
Used massively in the past
Before the 1990s asbestos was commonly used for insulation in homes and buildings all over Quebec. At the time, little was known about its dangers, but experts have since concluded that serious health issues can stem from its presence within our walls.
Asbestos can be found in house siding, building insulation, drywall, ceiling and floor tiles, cement, paint and more. Asbestos can be found in industrial furnaces and heating systems, wrapped around older hot water pipes and water boilers, and even used to tape together sections of heating ducts. It’s also used in car and truck brake pads and vehicle transmission components, such as clutches.

Careful and thorough decontamination is necessary due to the fact that asbestos fibers are highly volatile and harmful to your health.
