If you have an older home (built before 1990) you could be faced with an air ducts and asbestos problem. Asbestos has many unique properties as an insulator and fire retardant (as well as being a poor conductor of electricity) which promoted its use in household products like air duct sealing agents. Its toxic characteristics were only discovered much later.
Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance. Prolonged exposure has been known to cause serious illnesses like Mesothelioma, Asbestos and lung cancer. Don’t put yourself, family or employees in danger.
Should You Have Your Air Ducts Checked For Asbestos?
- Asbestos was typically used to tape together heating sections of air ducts. Removal depends on the condition of the material.
- If the material is damaged or cut it raises the level of asbestos exposure and related health risks. Airborne asbestos fibres can be breathed in and tend to settle in the lungs causing scarring and inflammation. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of asbestos fibre can seriously affect your health.
- If the tape and ducts are in good condition it might be preferable to just seal them and let them be as this will eliminate the risk of asbestos fibres becoming airborne.
- Asbestos testing by certified inspectors is the only way to determine if you have asbestos around your air ducts, how much of it, and whether it needs to be removed.
