Asbestos dangers within the home. Inspection findings.

At Desert Sun Home Inspections, we want our clients to be safe in every way possible.

When ever we find issues with a hazardous materials within or outside the home we list this in the report for the buyer to be fully aware the issue is there and needs to be addressed.

Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of a lot of home products throughout the years. When it was determined that asbestos caused cancer in humans it was discontinued and has been abated from many homes. But the real threat of contamination continues with a lot of homes.

The homes that have asbestos need special attention when it comes to handling the asbestos.

Asbestos can be found in siding, roofing materials as well as piping insulation and vent pipes.

Abatement can cost a lot of money when it's done by a abatement company.

Extra caution should be taken when dealing with any asbestos material.

This home has asbestos on the piping as an insulator for the water piping within the home.

Asbestos on interior piping.

These pipes are located in the furnace room of the home.

Asbestos on piping in home.

These issues can be dealt with. It's how much do you want to pay for the abatement. It's not cheap.

Asbestos in attic on piping.

Here we have a close up view of asbestos on water piping in the attic.

There are issues within almost every home. This is one that bothers me. Especially when there are going to be small children within the home after the purchase of the home.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi C. Lloyd.

All home buyers need to know this. If your inspector does not know this.....they need another line of work. LOL

Have a great day and a great Thanksgiving in the Duke City.

Best, Clint McKie
