Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Signs of Asbestos in the Home

The dangers of asbestos took years to be discovered. Many times, signs of cancers that result from years of exposure take 30 years to turn up. For many people, the exposure occurred in their homes. Even though asbestos mining has been banned for many years, people are still at risk of being exposed to the material inside their homes.

High Risk Asbestos Homes

Houses built between the years 1930-1950 and houses with paint applied before 1977 are at the highest risk of containing dangerous amounts of asbestos. It was considered a highly beneficial substance before the dangers were identified, as it had impressive heat resistance and was therefore suited to use in a broad variety of products.

To evaluate whether or not asbestos is located in the home, check the history of following common materials in the home and whether they were known to contain asbestos. The asbestos can then be safely removed. The following items in the home may contain asbestos:

  • Roofing and siding shingles
  • Insulation
  • Gas-fired fireplaces
  • Cement
  • Wood-burning stoves
  • Coal furnaces
  • Pipes
  • Flooring and adhesives

If you have found that your home contains asbestos, and you or your loved ones have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma as a result, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
