What 3 Spots Should I Check For Asbestos?
Updated: Dec 30, 2022
Asbestos could potentially be lurking in your home without your knowledge. These tiny fibers are not visible to the human eye and could be causing damage to your home and health. Additionally, symptoms may not be apparent for years or at all. Check these three spots for asbestos today.
Asbestos can be found in your roofing such as in shingles and tiling. Due to the constant sunlight your roof is exposed to, it’s a possibility that asbestos is trapped there as they can withstand high heat. Please note that our asbestos roof replacement professionals can help you with this undertaking, too.
According to Asbestos.com “homes built before the 1980s could expose homeowners, their families and others to asbestos possibly hiding in cement, floor tiles, insulation, walls and pipes. Our Guide to Asbestos in the Home can help protect you and others from exposure”. This was around the same time period that popcorn ceilings and textured paint were created in homes. If you have a popcorn ceiling, be sure to get it checked and tested for asbestos.
Similar to your roofing, insulation needs to resist high temperatures and provide durability. Asbestos fibers cling onto insulation and bond together.
