How to Recognize Asbestos

Asbestos is not used as often as it once was, but there are still homes and buildings that contain asbestos. If you believe your home has asbestos, it is better to call in a professional. However, it is important to remember that if left stabilized, asbestos is unlikely to cause harm. Jostling the fibers and making them air born is when they become dangerous. Unfortunately, if you are planning home repairs or your home has damaged building materials, you might have no other choice but to move the asbestos.

It is always better to use the best safety precautions, even if the asbestos in your environment is unconfirmed. You should treat potential asbestos as confirmed asbestos, just to be on the safe side. It is advised that homeowners not try to retrieve samples of suspicious materials on their own because it can lead to creating air born asbestos.

If you believe you have asbestos in your home, do not panic. If it is stabilized there is no reason to do anything to it. It will be safer to just leave it alone. The best thing to do is to check the affected area periodically to ensure it is in good repair and that no damage has been done. As long as things remain the same, you are probably safer leaving it alone. Do not touch the material when examining it. If it is located in an area that is frequently touched, bumped, handled, or exposed to air flow it needs to be removed.

Areas in the home that might be of concern include:

•    Vinyl sheet and tile flooring and their adhesives
•    Steam pipes
•    Boilers
•    Furnace ducts
•    Cement sheets
•    Door gaskets
•    Textured paint
•    Patching and joint compounds
•    Soundproofing materials
•    Artificial ash or ember
•    Cement roofing or shingles
•    Decorative materials
•    Fireproof gloves
•    Ironing board covers
•    Automobile parts

Remember, asbestos has not been in rampant use in the United States for a number of years, so these items are usually only a problem if they were manufactured prior to the 1980s and 1990s. If you are in doubt, contact the manufacturing company or look for information online about your specific product.

It is possible to quick-fix asbestos that is only moderately damaged. Speak with a professional before moving forward with a plan, but you might not need complete professional remediation if the asbestos in your home is relatively stable. The goal is to keep the fibers from becoming air born, so if you are able to paint over asbestos or cover it in some way to prevent it from being exposed to the air, you can usually solve your problem. The key is to accomplish this without creating any air born particles.

If you have serious concerns about asbestos, contact a professional remediation team and be sure to let your doctor know you have been exposed. Though there is nothing that can be done once asbestos has been inhaled, it is still important to be aware of potential side effects and know your risks from exposure.
