What's worse is, some of these companies knew exactly what asbestos could do! The guy from Bendix says “if you have enjoyed a good life while working with asbestos products, why not die from it?” http://www.ewg.org/sites/asbestos/documents/doc_BX-091266.ph.. Unbelievable! At least they can't get away with it nowadays. http://www.weitzlux.com/asbestos-lawsuit_1031.html

Asbestos is a terrible thing you have present in your home. We just looked into asbestos testing in Ottawato make sure our home here is safe. The last thing we want is poor health because we didn't get our home checked for asbestos. http://www.bustmold.com is a great company we found.
