Asbestos is harmful to human health and has been used in many construction products—including ceiling and floor tiles, siding, shingles and insulation. Asbestos is difficult to identify, so suspected products should be tested if they're not labeled. Asbestos removal is highly regulated.

For identification, removal and disposal of asbestos, find a list of contractors from the Minnesota Department of Health. If you need further assistance, contact 651-201-4620 or health.asbestos-lead@state.mn.us.
