Michigan Real Estate Asbestos Prevention Information

Purchasing or moving into a new home is the investment of a lifetime. The path to home owner ship is also one that will bring additional responsibilities into your life. Used in many construction applications for the greater part of the 20th century, asbestos is a fibrous mineral that possesses many intrinsic traits.

In most situations, asbestos appears in roof shingles, dry wall, attic insulation, popcorn ceilings, joint compounds and electrical wires. It’s flame resistant and durable qualities made it an ideal choice for many industries.

Potential Michigan home buyers or those seeking to remodel an older home should be aware that homes built before 1980 may still contain asbestos materials. This is not to make you frightened because asbestos exposure is easily preventable by taking simple precautions. There are now many eco-sustainable options that replace the need for asbestos.

Asbestos that is in a good state is not considered harmful. If any asbestos is located in your home, the best thing to do is leave it un-disturbed until a home inspector can determine the best course of action. Although asbestos exposure does not always lead a related illness, long term inhalation of its fibers can cause a rare but severe ailment known as pleural mesothelioma . Approximately 2,000 to 3,000 new mesothelioma cases are reported every year in the United States alone, while researches are constantly searching for a mesothelioma cure.

According to the experts, the general rule of thumb is if the asbestos is in good shape, it’s posing no apparent risk. If it’s in bad shape, it could be a problem. In many situations, the best action in dealing with asbestos is no action at all. However, if an inspector deems removal necessary, it must be performed by a licensed abatement contractor who is trained in handling asbestos materials.
