If your house was built before 1990, there’s a good chance it contains asbestos somewhere. Common places you might find asbestos include walls, roofs and eaves, vinyl tiling, drains and oven or heating flues.
Visit the Asbestos Awareness website to learn more and get tips on how to protect yourself.
