Handling Asbestos Siding

Do you have Asbestos Siding in your home?

A Brief History of Asbestos

Without diving too deep into the history of asbestos, we should touch on a few key points. This will help you know if you have to worry about the carcinogenic material, or if it isn’t going to be present in your house.

Most people think that this mineral is a 20th-century discovery. In fact, it dates back much further than that. The material was actually being used as far back as 4000 BC in ancient Egypt. And even the discovery that it was harmful has been known for quite some time. In the first century Pliny, the Elder wrote about how slaves that worked closely with the substance would get sick and die prematurely.

Fast forward to the 20th century when the use of asbestos was really starting to pick up. People wanted to have insulated houses, and this mineral did a remarkably good job. It was strong, fire resistant, insulated well and was incredibly versatile. It also caused cancer.
