You have probably already heard the horrors stories regarding asbestos and the life-altering diseases it can cause. Asbestos exposure can cause everything from difficulty breathing to specific types of cancer with very high mortality rates. What you may not know, however, is exactly where asbestos can be found. If you think it is only in walls and attics, this is unfortunately not the case. Many Connecticut homes and businesses have asbestos in places you wouldn’t think to look, including right in the floors!

In the past, asbestos fibers were added during the production of flooring materials to strengthen floors and to increase its durability. This means flooring, including sheet vinyl, vinyl or asphalt floor tiles and any associated paper-like backing, mastic, adhesive or glue, may contain asbestos. If your home, office, or any other building you regularly spend time in was built before just a few decades ago, this is a very serious possibility. If you are remodeling, it is recommended to work with a licensed asbestos contractor to remove flooring that contains asbestos. Even if you aren’t yet ready to change your floors for aesthetic purposes, you want asbestos out of your building right away. Don’t delay, call in Charter Oak Environmental, LLC today.
