Did You Know...
  • The Texas Department of State Health Services requires that as of January 1, 2002 (Senate Bill 509) all commercial and public building owners have to provide an asbestos survey to city municipalities before obtaining construction permits for any renovations or demolition.

  • "Friable" means that the asbestos is easily crumbled by hand, releasing fibers into the air allowing it to be inhaled or ingested. Sprayed on asbestos insulation is highly friable.

  • Asbestos was used in boiler and pipe insulation, plasters, floor tile, electrical insulation, and as a fireproofing material on structural members in buildings. It has also been sprayed on ceilings and walls as acoustic material.

  • Of the six types of asbestos, three are used more commonly. Chrysotile (white) is the most common, but it is not unusual to encounter Amosite (brown / off-white), or Crocidolite (blue) as well.

  • In biblical times, asbestos rocks were broken apart and the fibers were used to weave tablecloths. When the banquet was over, the soiled tablecloth was tossed in the fireplace for cleaning and the fire burned off everything and the tablecloth was ready for the next meal.
