Because of its strength and resistance to heat and fire, asbestos was used in hundreds of building products. Even though some properties of asbestos were beneficial, it was eventually discovered that asbestos was a very dangerous carcinogen that can cause mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer. As a result, regulations exist restricting the use of asbestos and in some cases, requiring that asbestos be safely removed so that it no longer poses a risk to anyone that can be exposed to asbestos fibers. Although asbestos removal may seem to be a very time consuming and costly endeavor, the costs of not having it removed could be even more expensive and pose serious health risks.
