Asbestos is a hazardous building material that must be inhaled to cause disease. Intact and undisturbed asbestos presents no direct health hazard but does present a potential exposure hazard should fibers be released and inhaled.
Asbestos can be found in materials such as:
- Building exteriors
- Flooring (i.e., tiles and sheet floor)
- Ceiling (i.e., tiles, acoustic and stipple finishes)
- Walls (i.e., drywall joint compound, plaster)
- Insulation (i.e., vermiculite, pipes, ducts)
Mould has a filamentous (or “hyphal”) growth form, often giving rise to “fuzzy”, “cottony”, “woolly” or “powdery” textured colonies growing on a substrate. Mould can be found almost everywhere naturally and serves an essential function by decomposing organic matter.
Moulds reproduce by producing large numbers of spores that are poorly visible or not visible at all to the naked eye. These spores can become airborne and disperse widely throughout the environment.
Mould spores from the outdoor environment can be carried into buildings where they deposit on surfaces including drywall, wood flooring, and insulation. When mould spores encounter a damp spot (e.g. through a water leak), they begin to grow and eventually destroy the things they grow on.
