Yes, spring and summer are in your sights and it has been a nasty winter in America…and it’s not over yet.. For many folks, having a safe and warm home or apartment is a necessity. So, finding the easiest and best way to accomplish warm and secure heat many times means using products that could in the long run kill you or make you sick. Well, one of those products is called loose-fill asbestos. It’s a form of insulation that is made up of ground up raw asbestos, and years ago was a popular option to the usual suspect that is used in most homes and buildings. And like many other products people use, loose-fill asbestos is not inherently all that dangerous, but if you know you have it in your home or building it is strongly suggested you contact a professional to test it, pronto.
Cause For Worry?
Look at it this way, folks. Loose-fill asbestos is not a bad thing if left alone. Actually, this type of insulation has excellent fire retardant properties but if loose-fill asbestos is crunched or crumbled the risk increases because it becomes airborne with tiny filters and when breathed, you’ve got trouble. That said, maybe if you suspect your home attic or office building may be loaded with loose-fill asbestos, find one or two companies online that offers testing and choose one with the lowest prices and have them come to your property and run a test. While the cost will probably depend on the size of your property, the test will only take two or three hours of your time.
Note: Before building or buying another home or building, make sure the insulation installed is NOT loose-fill asbestos. It could save a life. To learn more about loose-fill asbestos testing come visit Airsafe.net.au.
