Different Types Of Asbestos Abatement
Most people are not aware of the different types of asbestos, there are six different type of fiber-basedÂ asbestos commonly found today in both residential and commercial properties. Although not all types of asbestos are considered hazardous, all six fiber based asbestos fibers are too small to be seen by the human eye. These asbestos fibers are small enough to be inhaled and trapped in your lungs.
Chrysotile asbestosÂ is one of the most commonly used asbestos fibers, commonly used in cementÂ buildings and textiles. Chrysotile asbestos accounts for approximatelyÂ 95% of all asbestos fibers in the U.S. These fibers are white with a flexible or curlyÂ appearance. Despite the use of Chrysotile asbestos declining drastically, it is still the most commonly found asbestos.
Tremolite asbestos is often a dark green or milky white color withÂ sharp fibers that are easy to digest and inhale. Tremolite asbestos is the most dangerous asbestosÂ type. Tremolite is no longer used or mined but is responsible for a significant amount of asbestos-related illnesses.
Amosite asbestosÂ fibers are also sharp like Tremolite, this type of asbestos is easilyÂ trapped withinÂ your lungs and other parts of your body after inhalation causingÂ a wide array of bodily harms. Amosite asbestos is the second most commonly found asbestos.
Anthophyllite asbestos is one of the rarest types of asbestos. Anthophyllite does not have a long history of commercial use and is extremely uncommon in the United States.

Crocidolite asbestos is likely responsible for more deaths than any other type of asbestos because the fibers are extremely thin. These extremely thin fibers cause the fibers to more easilyÂ to get caught in your lung tissue. This type of asbestos is not commonly found in the United States.
