Can I Remodel My Home With Asbestos In It?
The biggest risk is asbestos exposure in any type of construction on your home. However, if you’re thinking about making adjustments to your home, it’s important to determine where the asbestos might be. Typically, you can remodel your home with asbestos present, if the tiny fibers are not disturbed.
Before you start remodeling your space, you should have the home or renovation area tested for asbestos, and contractors should receive a written asbestos report from the building owner. Asbestos abatement should be done by a licensed asbestos removal company before any demolition work is started, and the materials containing asbestos should be disposed of properly in special hazardous waste bins.
If you’re replacing ceiling tiles, adding lighting, replacing your roof shingles, flooring or insulation it’s important to have the area inspected for possible asbestos exposure. If the fibers are disturbed, then you could be putting your family at dangerous health risks.
