If you own a piece of property or real estate that was built prior to the 1970s then there is a very real chance that you have asbestos in your home. Asbestos was a cheap building material that was used throughout the country due to how easy it was to acquire nd use. Studies now show that asbestos can be dangerous when inhaled and there can be some really serious side effects as a result. With that being said, if you fear that you have asbestos in your home you owe it to yourself to get it checked out and potentially removed.
Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation
Today we are going to talk about a targeted type of asbestos loose fill asbestos insulation. This style of asbestos was used in ceilings and dropped ceilings as a form of insulation. The material was mixed up and filled loosely, as the name implies, in order to help keep heat and other elements from leaking through a ceiling. Unfortunately this is the most dangerous kind of asbestos because it is both loose and easy to disturb. Asbestos is only dangerous when it is disturbed because then particles get pushed up into the air. Can you see why this would be a problem?
If you want to get your building checked out for asbestos then you need to contact a testing facility ASAP. As asbestos is a dangerous material, it makes the most sense to bring in a professional to analyze it. A professional asbestos testing facility will have the correct materials and protective gear in order to test, analyze, remove and eventually dispose of the asbestos. You shouldn't do it yourself as you likely won't have the proper gear. Without the proper gear simply moving your asbestos can be a dangerous procedure that leads to long lasting health problems.
