How To Manage Asbestos In The Home
Building materials containing asbestos were commonly used in constructing homes between 1910 and the early 1980s.These materials were inexpensive and added more fire resistance to the structures they were used to build. Unfortunately, at that time it was unknown that asbestos causes severe health problems that can be life threatening. Many homes and other structures that were built during this time still have asbestos materials in them. If you live in an older home that tests positive for asbestos, this problem must be handled properly to avoid being exposed to this harmful substance.
