How Asbestos Fibres Can Harm You
Asbestos is a heat and fire-resistant material that was used to insulate heating pipes in homes before 1990. It is made up of long fibers that are thinner than what the eye can see and can be inhaled.

Asbestos exposure can lead to lung cancer and other severe lung diseases. Speak with your healthcare provider if you are worried about asbestos exposure.
Asbestos can only be disposed of at designated dump sites in Etobicoke.
Most municipalities have a section of their local removal facility where residents can dispose of household hazardous materials or locally generated hazardous materials.
Generally, anything produced on a larger scale is delivered to specific facilities within the province, and there is a specific process for doing so.
To dispose of asbestos properly, you should be mindful of and informed about the following:
- The chain of custody
- Whose asbestos is properly handled
- That it is delivered in sealed containers and that it is simply buried after being dropped off at a designated removal site.
Hidden Areas of Asbestos
Duct tape is used by contractors to finish, patch, and configure ductwork and HVAC systems. The unremarkable grey shiny tape is used in high-heat areas and has excellent bonding properties against aluminum and other metals used in HVAC systems.
Because of its ability to withstand high heat, many builders and contractors used asbestos-containing duct tape until the 1990s. Asbestos fibers, unfortunately, are now considered to cause serious health issues and are no longer used in the construction industry. For homeowners, these ‘asbestos tapes’ are a big issue.
This form of duct tape would eventually dry out and degrade, releasing the harmful fibers into the ductwork and into the home’s air stream. Asbestos may be released into the air even though the tape is simply removed.
Asbestos duct tape can look white rather than the gray tone used in today’s duct tape. Call a licensed asbestos removal specialist if you find this sort of tape in your home’s ductwork.
