Asbestos is a natural occuring element formally found in many building products. It was banned in the 1980’s because it was discovered to be a leading cause of cancer and other related diseases. If your home was built before 1984 then there is a chance you could have asbestos containing products in your home.
Common building materials known to contain asbestos:
- Vermiculite insulation – often blown in attic
- Insulation around water pipes or heating ducts
- VCT floor tiles
- Ceiling tiles
- Lathe and Plaster walls or ceilings
