Asbestos related health concerns:
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website says if your home has damaged building materials, like crumbling drywall or insulation, they may contain asbestos. You can’t identify it by looking at it, smelling it, or touching it. If you think your Woodbridge home has a hidden asbestos hazard, the EPA recommends you treat it as if it was asbestos and leave it alone.
