Trying to get rid of asbestos in your house in Houston?
Before 1980, asbestos was commonly used in a lot of different home-building materials.
This means, if you have an older home, it’s likely that the ceiling, wall plasters, wallboard, floor, and even ceiling have asbestos in them.
On its own, this isn’t a problem.
But it BECOMES a problem if those asbestos particles become airborne — this can be detrimental to your health, especially over the long-term.
Unfortunately, as older homes break down, this is a relatively common problem.
But at Brilliant Day Homes, we’ve helped homeowners out of all kinds of sticky situations… and here’s what we recommend if you think your house might have asbestos.
Test For Asbestos — Before you do anything, it’s a good idea to test your home for asbestos to make sure that you actually have a problem. You can order a testing kit online or you can hire someone to help with this
Hire Someone To Remove Asbestos — Unless you’re a very competent handyman and have experience handling asbestos, this is probably something you want to hire someone else to do. Doing this wrong could result in exposing yourself to additional asbestos particles.
Replace Fixtures — You’ll need to replace tiles, siding, or whatever you removed to get rid of asbestos. Keep in mind you cannot just put it in a trash can. The EPA requires a specific process for disposing of asbestos. Be VERY careful if you are trying to do it yourself, as handling can lead to specific cancer called mesothelioma.
