Asbestos is a harmful fiber and naturally occurring mineral
Asbestos has a long history of human use, dating back to the Greeks. Asbestos has physical properties that make it useful for sound absorption, tensile strength, and resistance to fire, heat, and electricity. This is why asbestos was widely used during the 20th century in insulation, electrical conduit, ceiling and floor tiles, and many other building materials. If your home or commercial property was built before 1980, there is a much greater risk it has materials containing asbestos.
Building materials that can contain asbestos:
- Drywall, plaster
- Floor and ceiling tiles, sheeting, adhesives
- Roofing tars, felts, siding, and shingles
- Transite HVAC ducts
- Fireproofing, fire blankets, interior fire doors
- Industrial gaskets
- Insulation, vermiculite insulation
- And more …
EPA studies have shown that exposure to asbestos may increase your risk of Lung cancer, Mesothelioma, and Asbestosis.
When you should test for asbestos:
- If you have or are renovating, remodeling, demolishing, or adding an addition to an existing building, because you could be disturbing asbestos containing materials
- If your home or commercial property was built before 1980, there is a much greater risk it has materials containing asbestos
- If you are buying or selling a home or commercial property
