The most common asbestos mineral types found in homes and are considered human carcinogens are

  • CHRYSOTILE – is the most common fibre found in homes including drywall compound, pipe insulation, floor tiles, corrugated asbestos and rope seals for boilers.
  • AMOSITE – referred to as brown asbestos is commonly found as a fire retardant in thermal insulation and ceiling tiles.

Asbestos poses a health risk only when fibres are present in the air you breath, when inhaled in significant quantities, asbestos fibres can cause
