Why Do You Need to be Concerned About Asbestos?
When asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed by repair, remodeling or demolition activities, microscopic fibers become airborne and can be inhaled into the lungs, where they can cause significant health problems.

Where can asbestos be found?
Asbestos fibers are incredibly strong and have properties that make them resistant to heat. Many products are in use today that contain asbestos. Most of these are materials used in heat and acoustic insulation, fire proofing, and roofing and flooring. In 1989, EPA identified the following asbestos product categories. Many of these materials may still be in use.
What if I have asbestos in my home?
The best thing to do is to leave asbestos-containing material that is in good condition alone. Before the house is remodeled, you should find out whether asbestos-containing materials are present. If asbestos-containing material is becoming damaged (i.e., unraveling, frayed, breaking apart) you should immediately isolate the area and refrain from disturbing the material.
An asbestos professional should be consulted. It is best to receive an assessment from one firm and any needed abatement from another firm to avoid any conflict of interest. Removal is often unnecessary.
