Use Caution When Removing Old Insulation

Most all building structures should be inspected for the presence of asbestos before any demolition occurs. Asbestos may be present in floor tiles, insulation, pipe covers and central heating devices. When left in place, asbestos may not present a health risk. However, when disturbed during a demolition project, asbestos can become airborne and cause a number of serious health problems.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) can be contacted for a list of licensed inspectors that can visit your property and determine the presence and extent of asbestos in the building structure. If asbestos is found, you will need to have it removed.
