EXPOSURE SOURCES

"I used Viking last year and was so impressed with their services!"

Samantha Jones, Per

Asbestos, known for its strength and fire-resistance, made it appear the perfect product with which to manufacture many types of building materials until the late 1970’s, when the danger of its use was realized.  However, the products could still have been installed well after 1980.

Here are some of the sources of asbestos exposure, which may be found in your home or commercial property:

 

  • Sheetrock

  • Plaster

  • Exterior siding

  • Roof shingles

  • Attic and wall insulation

  • Vinyl and rubber floor tile

  • Vermiculite ceiling tile

  • Pipe wrapping

  • Insulating cement

  • Insulating block

  • Gaskets around furnaces/wood and coal stoves

  • Thermal seals

  • Refractory and boiler insulation materials

  • Transite board

  • Asbestos cement pipes

  • Joint compound

  • Acoustical ceilings or wall coverings

  • Duct insulation for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC)

  • Asbestos blankets to wrap steam pipes

  • Insulated electrical wires and panels

  • Cement sheets/millboards around wood-burning stoves and around furnaces

  • Textured paints

  • Artificial ashes and embers for gas fireplaces

  • Mastics, adhesives and coatings
