Asbestos: Do Not Disturb

Asbestos can be found in thousands of homes and workplaces across the country. In general, asbestos-containing materials can be safe to work around as long as the materials are in good condition and are not disturbed.

Exposure can lead to asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other medical problems.
