We all have enough on our plates already without adding asbestos exposure to the mix, so we wanted to share some information about the topic. Prior to the intentional disturbance of any building product that has ever been known to contain asbestos, the federal EPA requires that all structures must undergo an asbestos survey to identify any asbestos-containing materials. This is important to know, not only so that you can be in compliance with the law, but, more importantly, so that you do not risk exposing yourself or anyone else to a known carcinogen. Asbestos exposure is no laughing matter, so it’s incredibly important that you plan before you make changes to a building.
Are you planning a renovation project? If so, have you included this important step into your planning to ensure you reduce the chances of asbestos exposure?
