Many homes and buildings built before 1980 contain asbestos in old floor tiles, ceiling tiles, roof shingles, siding, popcorn ceiling asbestos and insulation (around boilers, ducts, pipes and fireplaces). Some homes also may contain vermiculite attic insulation which can be contaminated with asbestos.
Asbestos becomes a hazard when it is airborne. If asbestos found in the home becomes damaged or deteriorates, it can release dust particles into the air which can pose a significant health problem. Asbestos testing can be performed to determine whether asbestos removal may be necessary.
