Asbestos in the Air

Since asbestos was so commonly used as a building material until recent years, many structures still
contain building parts with high levels of asbestos. In general, materials that contain asbestos that
are in relatively good condition release little asbestos into the air. Unless the asbestos fibers are
released and inhaled, there is little risk of exposure. Therefore, environmental agencies generally
consider there to be little risk to asbestos exposure in residential and commercial settings since there
is a low number of fibers released into the air.

However, with any asbestos-containing material, there is a risk that particles can be released into
the air. The number of asbestos fibers that are released into the air depends on a variety of factors,

  • the technique used as the material is physically handled
  • the amount of asbestos present throughout the material
  • the amount of damage the asbestos-containing material has incurred over time the type of asbestos fiber
  • how loosely the fibers are held together and embedded into the material
