When to Check for Asbestos
While asbestos-based products are not dangerous unless damaged or disturbed,
it’s important to be aware of asbestos in your home and when it
can pose a health risk. Asbestos testing is a simple and effective way
to determine whether your home can benefit from asbestos abatement.
- Some asbestos-based products release fibers into the air if they are cut,
drilled, sanded, or moved. If you are planning a home improvement project
or renovation, it’s a good idea to schedule asbestos testing before
you begin. Even if you are just planning to make repairs to an area of
your home, you should have the area tested for asbestos to ensure repair
work won’t pose a hazard.
- Asbestos-based products may also release fibers when they wear down or
deteriorate. If your home has suffered a leak, flood, or mold or pest
problem, you should schedule asbestos testing before restoration to ensure
that damaged materials are not releasing asbestos and you are not making
repairs to areas that should instead undergo asbestos abatement.
Tips to Prepare for Asbestos Removal

- Talk to your asbestos abatement service about what you can expect. Every
home is unique, so the best way to understand the asbestos removal process
for your home is to get a timeline and plan from your contractor to ensure
you understand how the process will be handled.
- Your asbestos abatement professional will need access to every area that
may contain asbestos. Any non-contaminated materials, such as your belongings,
furniture, and artwork, should be packed and stored in another area of
your home, or taken to a storage unit for safekeeping prior to work.
- If you aren’t comfortable staying in your home during abatement or
a large portion of your home will be inaccessible due to the work, you’ll
want to make arrangements for other accommodations for your family and
pets. Your asbestos removal service can let you know how long the work
