Asbestos Found during a Home Inspection
People buying homes generally have a routine home inspection completed before they move forward with the final purchase. Although some people are lucky enough to have a quality inspector, who has an eye for asbestos dangers, some receive the services of an inspector who misses the signs of asbestos, causing these home purchasers to end up with a house that may harm them in the long run. And when your inspector does find asbestos during your home inspection, it is an issue that must be taken care of. Its removal is absolutely necessary for your safety and the safety of your family, as any exposure to broken asbestos fibers could be deadly.
If you have had an inspector find asbestos in your home, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Contact an experienced asbestos attorney with Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-781-3955.
Common Locations of Asbestos in the Home
Before asbestos was nationally banned in 1979, it was used in a variety of home building materials. As a result, some of the more popular locations of asbestos in the home include:
- Around vents
- In drywall
- In plumbing/pipes
- In ceramic tiles
- In attics
You can find asbestos in both physical materials and in general spaces, but, if an inspector misses such dangerous material during your home inspection, you may be at risk for serious danger and development of traumatic health complications.
