Asbestos used to be the darling of the construction industry. It was used in products from insulation to floor coverings to dry wall, and its fire-resistant properties were considered a great benefit for homeowners. That was until workers started developing breathing conditions from the asbestos particles released into the air when such products are used. Products containing asbestos were banned in the early 1970s in Maryland, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still a lot of homes and businesses in the United States that contain asbestos-made products.
Fortunately, asbestos isn’t a health concern unless the products are disturbed, such as during construction, remodeling or demolition. If your home was built before 1980 and you plan on replacing a portion of your home or adding a new wing, you’ll need the services of a good asbestos team to evaluate your risk and help you remove this potentially hazardous material without harming your family.
What is asbestos testing?
Asbestos testing helps to determine whether you have asbestos material in your home and need to contact an asbestos abatement team. Many contemporary construction materials, such as cellulose insulation, resemble asbestos. It’s difficult to know what you have in your home without an experienced asbestos testing team. Just a few of the building materials in your home that might contain asbestos include sheet vinyl, popcorn ceilings, insulation, exterior cement tile siding and wall board.
