If your home was constructed before the year 1980, chances are it was built using asbestos. This material was commonly used in air ducts to help provide thermal insulation to act as a barrier for the air flowing through the system. Asbestos insulation was also used between basement joists for return air ducts. Because it can be a challenge to locate the areas where asbestos has been used, it can be complicated to remove it.
Some people choose to remove asbestos from their home as a DIY project. Unfortunately, when this happens, less visible areas are neglected. This can put you and your family’s health at risk. This is why you need to make sure you have an experienced professional who knows how to find all of these hidden locations.
