If you are planning on moving, or have recently moved to Swampscott, MA it is important that you have your home inspected for Asbestos. As Swampscott was originally settled back in 1629 this is a town with many older homes. Older homes run a much higher risk of being built with asbestos material. In fact, prior to discovering the potential dangers of this material, asbestos was widely used in everyday products including building material and fire protective gear. Now it is known that exposure to asbestos can be extremely dangerous leading to many harmful diseases, such as mesothelioma, cancer, and other lung-related illnesses.
If you are moving into a home that was built prior to 1980 it is always a good idea to get it tested for asbestos material. This information is important to know if you plan on renovating your home in any way now or in the future. Per regulations, any building built in 1980 must be tested for asbestos content before proceeding with any demolition, renovation or disturbance in any way.
