Asbestos is a harmful substance that was widely used in construction materials during the 20th century. It was discovered that asbestos was a carcinogen, and prolonged exposure to it could lead to lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are still present in many older buildings, including homes and commercial properties.

Asbestos was commonly used in different types of building materials, including flooring tiles. Asbestos fibers were added to vinyl or asphalt materials to create durable and robust floor tiles that were resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals. Asbestos fibers were also used to add strength and durability to ceiling tiles.
Asbestos tiles are a significant health risk for occupants of the building since the fibers can become airborne during the removal process or when the tiles are damaged. Once inhaled, the asbestos fibers can cause cancer, respiratory problems, and other severe health conditions.
Before beginning any asbestos removal work, it is essential to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself, your workers, and occupants of the building. Remove all items from the work area and cover the remaining items with plastic to avoid contamination from asbestos fibers.
Ensure that the workers are wearing the necessary protective clothing, including disposable coveralls, gloves, and masks designed to filter asbestos fibers. Use an asbestos-approved respirator with a HEPA filter to avoid inhaling any asbestos fibers during the removal process.
Ensure that there is proper ventilation in the work area by opening windows and doors or using industrial fans to circulate the air. Seal off the work area using plastic sheeting to contain the asbestos fibers and prevent them from spreading to other areas.
