Harmful When It's Worn Down

Damaged asbestos may release harmful fibers. If the asbestos fibers are torn or have abrasions or water damage, call a professional to remove the material. Find out how to stay safe.

Let Professionals Remove It

Don’t disturb or attempt to remove asbestos on your own. Allow only a trained and accredited asbestos professional to remove them. For more information on how to handle or dispose asbestos properly, visit Asbestos.com.
