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. However, when asbestos-containing materials are disturbed or become damaged, they can be a serious health hazard. Exposure can lead to asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other medical problems.
