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 asbestos exposure and asbestos is present in your home.

Long-term exposure could lead to the development of life-threatening cancers, such as mesothelioma.

A popcorn ceiling is a possible source of asbestos. Any disturbance to the ceiling, such as drilling a hole, could cause the fiber to become exposed to the rest of your home, putting you at risk.

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 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.

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 the experience to get you the facts.
