    Asbestos Exposure

    First, let me say that my prayers are with all of you and your loved ones. My exposure comes from home remodeling. My wife and I bought our first house and were eager to renovate and remodel. Anyway, the house was built in 1960 and contained asbestos products. Although my exposure was somewhat limited, I am very concerned. Any input or thoughts would be appreciated. Basically, I cut 4-5 pieces of asbestos siding, drilled about 20 holes in the siding to hang shutters, tore off about 18-20 pieces of siding and replaced w/ new non -asbestos siding, tore up a small tile floor about 40 sq ft, and my wife tore up our family room tile floor of about 200 sq ft. Thanks anyone for listening.

    Re: Asbestos Exposure

    Please note that i do insulation work for a living, Im female and have done it for 12 years. My first year in i was doing patch work up in a ceiling, dust flying everywhere, 8 hours aday for probably 2 weeks straight,until an an offical came up (military post) and told me to get out of there, that it was asbestos. Needless to say ive seen it several times and intereacted with it several times in my career. I work with several insulators who have regularly worked with it, no protection, and still going strong 25 years later. Im alot smarter these days, i refuse to be around it, it still bothers me that i wasnt educated about how to detect it.....I cant change that now and neither can you, We cant spend the rest of our live worrying about it or we may just have a heart attack worrying about it. Not to mention i also smoke ciggarettes,and one day they will probably be removing the very material,i installed today in little white suits. HA! HA!!this reply was from my heart, i too have worried, but i know im not leaving this earth until the lord is ready for,regardless, of how i leave here!!!I hope this has helped ease you and your wifes mind some.
