Asbestos in Your Home

Asbestos is a very dangerous material that can was commonly used in construction for a long time. Asbestos has excellent heat resistant properties that made it a valuable building material in the past. However, it has since been learned that asbestos is extremely dangerous. Asbestos has been linked to mesothelioma, as well as several other serious medical issues.

Before the mid 70s, asbestos was widely used in shipyards and construction. Unfortunately, this means that everything from houses to schools to office buildings have used asbestos in their construction. While materials with asbestos in them can be safe if left in place and kept in good condition, they can become extremely dangerous in any other situation.

This means that schools, office buildings, and even your house could contain asbestos if it was built before the mid 70s. If your house is in poor condition or you are remodeling, asbestos could become a huge problem. There are several places in your house that asbestos has commonly been used as well.

The surfaces of your house both interior and exterior could very well contain asbestos. It could be in your deck undersheeting, roof felt and shingles, and the window putty on the exterior. The interior surfaces of your house could contain asbestos in sprayed on acoustical ceilings, acoustical tiles, or even textured paint.
