If your residential or commercial property was built before 1989, then asbestos is possibly somewhere in the building. It used to be a highly valued fireproofing material and strengthening agent. It was added to concrete, asphalt, vinyl, insulation on steel beams, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wallboard, floor tiles, joint compounds, insulation, plaster, and tile adhesive.
But when airborne asbestos was found to cause deadly diseases and cancer (mesothelioma), quantity limits were placed on its use in the United States. The CDC warns that asbestos is still used in imported cement pipe, corrugated sheeting, roofing materials, and vinyl tile.
It doesn’t matter if your property is residential or commercial, if you renovate voluntarily – or involuntarily, asbestos testing* may be a regulatory requirement before you begin work. Even minor renovations and repairs can disturb existing asbestos.
