Asbestos was a substance commonly used in home construction and insulation decades ago. It is no longer used, but many homes still contain asbestos shingles, flooring, insulation, roof tiles, and more because it hasn't been changed or removed. While intact asbestos doesn't generally present a problem, loose tiles or insulation that is coming apart can pose a hazard to anyone that comes in contact with the substance. If you aren't sure whether you have asbestos in your home or not, professional asbestos testing can be done to see what is going on in your home.
