Where do I find asbestos? What/where should I sample?
Here are the most common places you’ll find asbestos. Your sample only needs to be the size of a dime:
- Drywall mudding compound
- Vinyl floor tiles (VCT floor tiles)
- Linoleum flooring
- Silicone around windows/sliding doors
- Textured popcorn ceiling
- Textured walls
- Attic/wall insulation
- Roofing materials
To avoid making a mess, plan before taking each sample. Luckily, we’ve put together details for each of the above locations in our Asbestos Sampling Guide.
