When asbestos fibers become airborne, they may be so small they are invisible to the naked eye. Consequently, people can inhale them easily. Diseases associated with asbestos exposure include asbestosis and mesothelioma, as well as cancer of the lungs, digestive tract and other organs. There is no safe level of asbestos exposure.

Several agencies regulate asbestos. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is the state agency responsible for governing asbestos abatement projects in Missouri. Asbestos abatement encompasses all steps, materials and precautions necessary to remove and clean up asbestos.

The department’s asbestos regulations apply to commercial structures in Missouri and to some residential structures. Most single-family residences are exempt. Please see the asbestos fact sheets to help you determine if your structure is regulated. Links to the fact sheets appear below.
