Asbestos Exposure in Washington DC

Many of the buildings and structures located in Washington D.C. were built during an age when asbestos was heavily used for insulation and as a fire retardant. Before its dangers were well known, asbestos was incorporated into roofing materials, floor tiles, millboard and other building products.

Today, construction workers can be exposed to asbestos while demolishing and renovating these older buildings, unless proper precautions are taken. Safety procedures, such as dampening asbestos-containing materials, wearing disposable protective clothing and avoiding the use of power tools, need to be followed when working with older buildings.

Workers who maintain these older buildings can be exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos as well, since asbestos was also used to line water pipes, HVAC ductwork, boilers and electrical conduits.
