Where Else Can Asbestos be Identified?
It pays to be safe when handling asbestos materials. With the rise of DIY renovations, there is a need for more education on the topic. For many years asbestos was in a wide range of products. Most people were aware of it in housing as walls, sheets and roofing. Even a brick veneer house may have asbestos sheets found in the soffit or wet areas such as the bathrooms or kitchen areas. Asbestos materials were also used in pool linings and the backing of Linoleum. It was used in insulating electrical components and pipework. Loose-fill materials used in roof insulation also contained asbestos. So once again, the moral is ‘Be wise, Be Safe & Test. Better to assume it is than run the risk.
