Asbestos was a common insulation material in houses built between the late 19th century and the 1970s. Asbestos was banned in the United States in 1989 due to the connection between inhaling the substance and incidences of lung cancer and other respiratory diseases.
Safely dealing with asbestos requires training and proper equipment. Homeowners risk health complications if they go poking around suspected asbestos insulation without a breathing mask and proper gear. A home inspector trained in asbestos can safely identify any asbestos that might still be located in your home or a property you are interested in purchasing. If asbestos is found, the property owner can have a specially-trained removal company deal with the issue.
