Homes or other buildings built between the late 1800s and 1989 may contain asbestos in some form. During this time, asbestos was used in a wide variety of building supplies, making it especially difficult to identify and remove. Asbestos can be found in vinyl asbestos tile, linoleum, VAT, vinyl sheet goods, transite siding, transite pipe, transite roofing, stucco, ductwork, texturecoat, acoustic ceiling, drywall, popcorn ceiling, lath and plaster, plaster, buttonboard, mastic, fireproofing, pipe covering, mag block, mag piping, and more.
Now that we are aware of the dangers posed by asbestos, both homeowners and owners of commercial properties alike are flocking to asbestos abatement experts like All County Environmental & Restoration, looking to protect their property’s value, make it safe for others, and ensure that they will not be liable for the health problems that an untreated property might cause.
Though homeowners are not required to remove asbestos from their homes, you may want to ask yourself whether the costs of asbestos removal outweigh the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you’re no longer living in a building full of dangerous carcinogens. And if you or someone in your household smokes, breathing asbestos substantially increases the risk of lung disease. If your family’s health is important to you, call All County Environmental & Restoration and take the first steps to making your home safe again.
In addition, California law requires that a seller who is aware that their home contains asbestos must disclose that fact in writing during the sale and escrow process. The law is even stricter in the case of commercial properties, where the owner is responsible for obtaining asbestos abatement services wherever asbestos is exposed or poses a hazard. Those in California who are concerned not only about the health hazard caused by asbestos but also its effect on their property value should contact All County’s asbestos experts and take the first steps to protect their property and their health.
