Until 1981, asbestos was useda majorly during construction of buildings because it has great tensile strength, it can easily maintain the temperature of the room, and it was easy to install. It was also used in false ceilings and ducts for thermal insulation purposes. However when the scientists discovered that asbestos can cause cancer, its use was completely banned. And the worst part is asbestos can spread through air, hence not just using it during construction is a hazard, but also asbestos abatement (removal) is also a major health hazard.
For buildings built before the ban came into force, it becomes all the more important for people to get their building material tested for asbestos. The major problem with asbestos is as the material will decay over a period of time; it will mix more easily with air, and lead to a carcinogenic air which will harm the entire neighborhood. So once you have your old building tested positive for asbestos, it is time to take action.
