Where can you find asbestos

Asbestos was once a trusted material until the horrible health effects became known and people wisely refrained from its use.

 

The problem that we have now is finding asbestos that was used in and around the house which could have adverse health effects. It is important to get a specialist to deal with this. But where should we look for asbestos for removal?
