Did you know...?

Ceramic tile are generally safe when they are fully formed. The tiles themselves were made of clay and glazed by intense heat. They are non-metallic and are made to endure for many years. However, before the 1970s, it was found that the tiles were mixed with asbestos, which strengthens the tiles. The asbestos has been linked to Mesothelioma, one of the worst cancers with a high mortality rate.

Today's ceramic tiles manufacturers have stopped using asbestos in making the tiles. However, there are still a few who use small amounts to strengthen their products. Of course, they neglect to mention that to their customers. That kind of irresponsibility has caused undue health problems among the company's employees and also its customers. Many Mesothelioma cases have continued to arise from such negligence.

To avoid being exposed to asbestos, you must make sure the ceramic tiles you are buying are 100% free from asbestos. Check what kind of company your supplier is.
