Asbestos requires professional inspection and removal by someone certified in asbestos removal
Asbestos is extremely dangerous if the fibers and the dust become airborne. The disease that asbestos is related to is mesothelioma, which is a lung disease that cannot be cured. Asbestos was primarily used as an insulator and might be present in older homes where it was used in insulating duct work, furnances, and water pipes.
Most asbestos that was wrapped around pipes was covered and taped to seal the asbestos. Exposing these pipes or ducts creates the danger and opportunity for the asbestos to become airborne.
