Residential Asbestos Exposure – Important Information

This article is provided as a customer service by Richard Nelson at

If you thinking about purchasing a home that was built prior to 1980, the chances of that home including asbestos products, for example, attic insulation or ceiling tiles, is especially high.

Before you buy a new home, it is vital to speak with your realtor about the likelihood of asbestos within the structure. Your realtor may recommend hiring a licensed home inspector to examine the home and point out any asbestos-containing materials, as well as any other health contaminants, that might be present. 

If a home inspector does find asbestos, it is absolutely essential that it be removed by a qualified asbestos abatement technician, as contact with asbestos – even in diminutive amounts – can lead to the development of  mesothelioma, a fatal type of cancer that does not have a cure. 

Before you procure an older residence, it is necessary that you and your realtor take all of the needed steps to ensure that your possible new home is free of all health hazards, including asbestos.
