According to the EPA Asbestos is a natural fibrous material that is heat retardant. It can be found in materials like flooring, mastic, roofing materials, drywall & texture, caulk, glazing, wiring, some attic insulation and automobile clutches/breaks. Both OSHA & the EPA concur that Asbestos is not dangerous unless airborne; but we still don’t recommend eating it. With that being said, for the safety of all parties we do have to test for Asbestos when applicable. According to the EPA: For demolitions that are subject to the asbestos NESHAP, the regulation requires a thorough inspection before demolition or renovation begins. Please note that a company has to be state certified to handle Asbestos, the regulations are intricate and require professional attention when present.
