Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that was commonly used in building materials before 1980, when it was discovered that asbestos was carcinogenic. While asbestos is now banned, it’s remnants still remain in millions of homes across the U.S., and prolonged exposure is causing serious respiratory issues, including mesothelioma.

Asbestos is commonly found in homes built before 1980, as it was widely used in various construction materials at that time.
Asbestos is most dangerous when its fibers become airborne and are inhaled. If asbestos-containing materials in your home are undisturbed and in good condition, the risk of exposure is lower. However, it's still essential to monitor and consider proper management or removal to ensure long-term safety.
Asbestos can be found in various areas of older homes, including insulation around pipes or in ducts, insulation in walls and floors around stoves or furnaces, popcorn ceilings, floor tiles, roofing, shingles, siding, window caulking, and glazing, among others. It's best to conduct an Asbestos Test to identify potential sources in your home.
To determine if your home has asbestos, you’ll need to schedule an Asbestos Test with a certified home inspector who can collect samples and have them tested for asbestos fibers.
Asbestos can pose serious health risks if its fibers are released into the air and inhaled. Prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to lung diseases, including cancer.
The best way to ensure your family’s safety from asbestos exposure is to first determine if your home has asbestos. If asbestos is detected, you should consider professional asbestos abatement to eliminate the risks.
While it may not be a legal requirement, testing for asbestos before selling your home is a responsible step to take if you have never had your home tested for asbestos previously. It allows you to address any asbestos issues and provides transparency to potential buyers.
We recommend hiring a certified home inspector who partners with an accredited laboratory and has experience in asbestos testing to ensure accurate results and proper analysis.
Whether you are buying, selling or living in the home, if asbestos is detected during the test, we recommend you seek professional mitigation services for asbestos abatement to safely remove or encapsulate the asbestos-containing materials.
