If you live in an older home, you might be wondering if asbestos is present within any of the materials it was built with. Running into asbestos during a renovation or remodel can cost money and jeopardize your health, so familiarizing yourself with where asbestos might be present would be a good idea.
Fortunately, our website has resources to help you determine just where asbestos might be within your home. Not only is our Asbestos in the Home page super helpful and informative, we recently launched an interactive infographic to help you better understand where and why asbestos is where it is.
It is important to keep in mind that asbestos materials are not dangerous unless damaged or in a friable (easily-crumbled) state. It can be especially damaging to your health if you mess with these materials and release deadly fibers into the air, where they can be breathed in or ingested.
