Blog – All you need to know about asbestos insulation in Michigan
Chances are, you’re probably vaguely familiar with that asbestos is, or at least that it’s dangerous. You may not be able to afford to be so naive about it though. Even though the use of asbestos peaked more than 30 years ago, Mesothelioma is a slow-to-develop, incurable and deadly cancer that is still being diagnosed to nearly 3,000 people in the U.S. each year. Asbestos is still in many Michigan homes and commercials buildings, so you owe it to yourself to find out all you can about this toxin.
Where was Asbestos Used?
Asbestos was used in the construction of homes and other buildings up until the 1980’s. You may only know to check for asbestos in the attic or within the walls, but some commercial buildings and residential homes were actually originally built with asbestos floor tiles as well. Hot water pipes, bathroom insulation, and garages are all potential hot spots for asbestos.
How to Know it’s Asbestos
It is very difficult to identify the presence of asbestos just by looking at it. As a general rule, certain building materials installed before the late 1980s possibly contain asbestos. However, the only way to be certain is to have a sample of the material analyzed by professionals.
