Common Locations of Bathroom Asbestos

Understanding where to look for asbestos in your bathrooms will help you make more informed decisions when you plan to renovate or even just want to be more careful. Consider the following familiar places in bathrooms where you can find asbestos:

  • One of the most common places you will find asbestos is in insulation materials. The construction industry commonly used asbestos for its insulating properties for many years before people realised it was dangerous. You should make sure you let professionals check any insulation you have in your bathroom for signs of asbestos.
  • Asbestos can also be in your cement sheet walls. These sheets provided builders with a simple solution to roofing and even walling, which is why they used asbestos so much when it was popular.
  • You might have asbestos in your bathroom ceiling. A straightforward way to know whether you might have asbestos in your ceiling is to have what the industry commonly refers to as a popcorn ceiling. The asbestos underneath the plaster creates a sort of rough texture. The construction industry mainly produced these ceilings during the 50s to the 80s, however.
  • You could find asbestos in the backings of floor tiles. Because of its insulating properties, builders might have used asbestos in the backing of your floor tiles during construction.

It is important to note that while asbestos usage was in its prime from the 50s to the 80s, that does not mean that construction did not use it after that period. It is always better to make sure you don’t have traces of asbestos in your home by contacting professionals to investigate.
