Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral formerly used in building materials primarily as an insulator or fire retardant. Today, asbestos is well recognized as a health hazard. Though it is often desirable or necessary to remove asbestos, its removal is highly regulated in order to protect public health. You must obtain a permit for asbestos removal.
