Asbestos in San Diego

 

Asbestos refers to several varieties of mineral fibers that were mined and processed into a valued building material in the 1900s. However, it has become widely recognized as a health hazard and is no longer used. Asbestos also occurs naturally in some places around the world, including parts of California.

In the home, asbestos would commonly be found in:

  • Roofing materials
  • Flooring
  • Pipes & pipe insulation
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Insulation
  • Furnaces & air ducts
  • Inside fuse boxes
  • Boilers, piping & siding
  • Old vinyl floor tiles
  • Acoustic, popcorn ceilings

The County of San Diego Air Pollution Control District and the Department of Environmental Health vigorously enforce regulations applying to demolition operations, renovation operations, and transport and disposal of asbestos-containing wastes, so you want to make sure you hire a reputable contractor.
