When should you Test for Asbestos in your Florida Property?

You should test for asbestos if:

Do you experience shortness of breath, dry coughing and wheezing, or chest tightness only while at home? If so, it’s likely that you are suffering from exposure to asbestos containing materials and asbestos is present in your home.

Long-term asbestos exposure could lead to the development of life-threatening lung cancer, such as mesothelioma, as well as other non cancerous lung diseases.

A popcorn ceiling is a possible source of asbestos. Any disturbance to the ceiling without asbestos abatement, such as drilling a hole, could cause the fiber to become exposed to the rest of your home, putting you at risk of asbestos exposure.

Homes that feature or once featured floor tiles measuring 9 by 9 inches is a sign that asbestos could still be contained within the property. You cannot see or smell asbestos, so it’s important to note certain architectural properties and building materials of a home.

Properties built over 20 years ago contain asbestos and the older a home is, the more likely it is to find asbestos at a health-threatening exposure level. Disturbing areas of the home through renovation is how asbestos can come into contact with the home’s residents. Removing the asbestos with asbestos abatement procedures is the only way to remove potential asbestos exposure from your home.

Before thinking of buying a home, don’t move in without having an asbestos test performed by a specialist. Make sure you hire a testing company that has the training and business experience to get you the facts.
