How to Distinguish Asbestos Siding in Arlington, VA Homes

Asbestos is a dangerous material and can cause specific health problems (including lung cancer). If you live in an Arlington, VA home built before 1980, your home may have asbestos shingles or siding.

For years, asbestos was used inside and outside of homes. Asbestos siding and shingles were commonly used due to the heat and fire resistance asbestos provided. The material kept heat inside the house and helped prevent fires from spreading.

Asbestos causes problems when it's inhaled into the lungs. Asbestos insulation is usually considered the most dangerous to health because the asbestos fibers become stuck in the throat and lungs, leading to problems such as cancer. However, if you live and or work around asbestos siding for an extended period of time, you greatly increase your risk of asbestos-related disease.

The only way to distinguish Arlington, VA asbestos siding from non-asbestos siding is by closely examining the fibers under a specific microscope.

Fibers from asbestos siding generally only appear when the siding is altered in some way. Sawing the siding, cutting it or drilling holes in it can release the fibers and make it possible for you to inhale them. The best way to prevent this from occurring is by leaving the asbestos siding as it is.

If you are concerned that your Arlington, VA home may have asbestos siding, please contact the experts at Envirotex. Envirotex Environmental Services can take samples safely, and send them off to an independent lab for determination. If your Arlington, VA home does have asbestos siding, Envirotex Environmental can assist you and your contractors with safely removing and disposing of the Arlington, VA asbestos siding.
