Materials containing asbestos are divided into two catergories, friable and non-friable. Friable are those materials that crumble from hand pressure, such as plaster and drywall. Associated tape and joint compounds, plaster, and drywall may contain asbestos in older buildings built in the early 70s. If non-licensed professionals remove these asbestos materials, it may lead to the asbestos fibers being released into the air.
If you are performing demolition or construction work that may involve the removal or disturbance of materials that may contain asbestos, it is highly recommended that you have an asbestos inspection carried out by professionals.
Mold removal is done by using sandpaper or a wire brush on materials such as plaster or wood, removal of porous materials such as drywall, wiping down, or vacuuming material such as concrete. Wood and concrete are not associated with asbestos, but plaster and drywall are. While removing mold-damaged materials, it is possible to spread asbestos fibers through the air.
Mold might be invisible to the naked eye and can hide under carpets or baseboards. If you have mold, you might notice a smelly basement, water seepage, leaking roof or water stains. If you notice any of these phenomenons, you may require a mold inspection done by professionals.
