Asbestos is present in almost 7,000 different building materials that are widely used. Homes built between 1930 and 1950 may have asbestos insulation. Prolonged exposure to asbestos may lead to various diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. Therefore, to stop the asbestos fibers mixing in the air, it is vital to check whether the material has started to show signs of wear.

Common Items That May Contain Asbestos Include:
Steam Pipes, boilers, and furnace ducts insulated with an asbestos blanket or asbestos paper tape may release asbestos fibers if damaged, repaired, or removed. The backing on vinyl sheet flooring and the adhesives used for installing resilient floor tile such as vinyl asbestos, asphalt, and rubber may also contain asbestos.
Cement sheets, millboard, and paper used as insulation around your furnace or wood-burning stove could also potentially contain asbestos. If you have asbestos cement roofing, shingles, and siding, these may release asbestos fibers if broken or damaged.
Other common household items that may include asbestos can include:
Attic insulation and vermiculite
Caulking putties and joint compound
Flooring tile, vinyl asbestos tile, and linoleum
Glue and/or mastic
Pipe and boiler insulation
Plaster, mastics, and cement
Sprayed fire retardants
Surfacing materials, including plaster and sheetrock
Tiles and insulating board
What If I Have Asbestos In My Home?
If asbestos-containing material is becoming damaged (i.e., unraveling, frayed, breaking apart) you should immediately isolate the area (keep pets and children away from the area) and refrain from disturbing the material (either by touching it or walking on it).
You should then immediately contact an asbestos professional for consultation. Asbestos-containing material does not necessarily need to be removed, but may rather be repaired by an asbestos professional via encapsulation or enclosure.
