Where do I find asbestos? What/where should I sample?

 In

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
  • Plaster
  • 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.
