    About Your House: Asbestos - Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation
    Today, far fewer products in the home contain asbestos. Current products that do contain the material are better made to withstand wear and use.

    However, frequent or prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres may still bring health risks. This can happen with the release of fibres into the air when asbestos-containing products break down, either through deterioration as they age or when they are cut. People can put themselves at risk - often without realizing it - if they do not take proper precautions when repairs or renovations disturb asbestoscontaining materials. This can occur in a number of situations:

    * Disturbing loose-fill vermiculite insulation which may contain asbestos
    * Removing deteriorating roofing shingles and siding containing asbestos, or tampering with roofing felt that contains asbestos
    * Ripping away old asbestos insulation from around a hot water tank
    * Sanding or scraping vinyl asbestos floor tiles
    * Breaking apart acoustical ceilings tiles containing asbestos
    * Sanding plaster containing asbestos, or sanding or disturbing acoustical plaster that gives ceilings and walls a soft, textured look
    * Sanding or scraping older water-based asbestos coatings such as roofing compounds, spackling, sealants, paint, putty, caulking or drywall
    * Sawing, drilling or smoothing rough edges of new or old asbestos materials
