Residential Asbestos Services (South Carolina)
Homeowners that live in structures built before 1980 are very likely to have asbestos-containing building materials. Common materials containing asbestos are textured ceilings (popcorn), plaster, roofing materials, drywall compound, floor tiles, and insulators used in HVAC systems. Though the U.S. banned the use of asbestos in building materials after 1980, asbestos is still being used in some imported building materials today.
Before taking on home improvement projects or renovation work, it is important to consider the presence of asbestos-containing building materials. Such materials, when disturbed, may release asbestos particles into the air where they could be inhaled. Homeowners should take the proper measures to plan improvement projects with consideration to asbestos. When applicable, always hire licensed contractors that are qualified for the job.
