What products in my home can contain asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that’s long been used in building materials because it’s strong, durable, and fire-resistant. It can be found in the following places:

  • Floor tiles and sheet flooring
  • Mastic (adhesive or glue)
  • Pipe and boiler insulation
  • Roofing and siding materials
  • Paint and wall surfacing materials (including popcorn ceilings)
  • Fireproofing materials
  • Glazing and caulking compounds
  • Vermiculite Insulations (Zonolite)
Asbestos Pipes

When should you test for asbestos — and why should you remove it?

Most states require you to hire a certified asbestos inspector if you’re about to embark on any type of renovation or demolition project.  They will identify materials that contain asbestos.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have banned several asbestos products, as the mineral can cause serious health problems such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.
