Asbestos is a well known material that can contain one of six naturally occurring fibrous silicate minerals that have been shown to cause cancer and other health problems if ingested. Asbestos was widely used in construction from 1940 until 1978 because it is strong, and heat-resistant properties. However in 1978 the EPA banned the use of it in building materials because of the health problems it was causing.
In 1991, this regulation was overturned by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans so today it is only banned from being used in: flooring felt, roll-board, and corrugated, commercial, or specialty paper. Asbestos can still be found in sheet vinyl flooring in structures constructed as late as 1989. In Colorado all structures, regardless of construction date, are required to be inspected prior to renovation or demolition.
