Today, the dangers of asbestos exposure are well known. Despite this, asbestos has not been completely banned. When people find this out, they often come to us and ask: “what are the risks of exposure to asbestos today?”
Unfortunately, the answer to that question is that there are still significant risks if you’re not careful. While the use of asbestos has been more seriously regulated in recent decades, it still exists in many places. For example, any building that was built before 1975 could potentially have asbestos in the ceiling, the drywall, in the attic insulation, etc. if you’re interested in buying an older home, you should definitely have it inspected and, if found, removed.
