Asbestos can be found in baseboards, particularly in older buildings that were constructed or renovated before the mid-1980s. Baseboards are the decorative or protective moldings installed along the bottom of interior walls, typically where the wall meets the floor. Here's how asbestos can be present in baseboards:
It's important to note that asbestos in baseboards may not be immediately apparent. The asbestos fibers are usually mixed with other materials, making visual identification difficult. Therefore, if you suspect that your baseboards may contain asbestos, it is recommended to consult with a Revolve Asbestos Solutions. We can conduct a thorough inspection, collect samples for testing if necessary, and provide guidance on the appropriate course of action.
If asbestos is confirmed in baseboards, proper precautions should be taken during any renovation or removal process. Engaging a licensed asbestos removal company like Revolve Asbestos Solutions ensures that the removal is carried out safely, following regulations and guidelines. It is essential to avoid disturbing or damaging the asbestos-containing baseboards, as that can release asbestos fibers into the air, posing health risks to occupants.
