Asbestos Awareness Asbestos Awareness

If you are thinking about renovating, you must be aware of asbestos. It is important for home owners and renovators to be aware of how to safely manage asbestos in and around the home. Asbestos could be in any home built or renovated before 1987.

If you suspect you have asbestos in your home, don't cut it, don't drill it, don't drop it, don't sand it, don't saw it, don't scrape it, don't dismantle it, don't tip it, don't waterblast it, don't demolish it and whatever you do don't dump it!
