How To Identify Asbestos In Your Home
Leave it to the professionals to identify the presence of asbestos in your home. Without experience and the right tools and safety equipment you could unnecessarily put yourself at risk.
Asbestos was used in a number of household products before its carcinogenic properties were discovered. This means it could be present in several areas of your home if it is more than 30 years old.
What are the sources of asbestos in your home?
- Asbestos cement and plastics
- Insulation board
- Drywall joint cement
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Vermiculite-containing garden, etc.
Disturbing or damaging items that contain asbestos may release the toxic fibres into the air that could get trapped in your lungs for a very long time. The health hazards of prolonged exposure to asbestos are far too serious to ignore. Also the fibres are tiny and often invisible which makes detection difficult for an untrained individual.
What To Do If You Discover Asbestos In Your Home?
If you suspect that you have asbestos in your home, then call an experienced asbestos inspection service. Never try to collect asbestos samples or clean it out yourself. You will end up doing more harm than good. Trained asbestos technicians can get it done quickly and safely. This is a small price to pay to protect the health of your family or workers.
