Asbestos removal falls under the abatement category in construction which is the act or process of reducing or otherwise abating removing materials. According to the Wikipedia, asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral. There are six types, all of which are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, each fibre being composed of many microscopic "fibrils" that can be released into the atmosphere by abrasion and other processes.
If the process of asbestos removal is not completed properly, it can contaminate property, contents, or to humans. Inhalation of asbestos fibre can also lead to various lung conditions including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
Asbestos removal is regulated by federal, state and local governments and requires licensing of abatement contractors and employees.
