Your Own Neighborhood: An Asbestos Exposure Risk?

Cautious and prepared homebuyers should check the environmental hazards of any new area in which they
wish to purchase a home. However, even if you live in a brand new home built with safe construction
materials, you could still be at risk for asbestos exposure. If you live in an older neighborhood with
multiple renovation projects in progress, it is possible that you could be exposed to unsafe levels
of asbestos in the air.

It is common to come into contact with small amounts of asbestos fibers everyday. Asbestos fibers can
come from a variety of places in your local environment. Older asbestos-containing materials, such as
old brake pads, automobile parts, and older construction materials, can deteriorate and particles can
travel by wind through the air.

However, if your home environment is located in close proximity to a hazardous waste site, or is near
older homes and buildings in disrepair, you may be exposed to unsafe levels of asbestos in the air.
Even in neighborhoods where older homes and buildings are being repaired and rehabilitated, your risk
of heightened exposure is increased if workers do not take proper safety precautions to remove and dispose
of asbestos-containing materials.
