Asbestos in the Home and Workplace

Asbestos exposure is not limited to manufacturing work sites. Many homes, schools, churches, office buildings, and recreation centers contained significant amounts of asbestos.

Asbestos in the Home

Asbestos can be found in many places of the home. It is important to check an old home for asbestos. If you find asbestos in the home - DO NOT move or disturb it. Removal of asbestos in a home should be done by a licensed asbestos removal contractor.
