[The Asbestos Guide] addresses a number of topics for those concerned about or interested in learning more about asbestos. As we say here at ADAO, 'Hear Asbestos. Think Prevention.' - Linda Reinstein CEO of ADAO

Incidents of exposure to deadly asbestos continue to surface as an increasing number of homeowners take on do-it-yourself renovation projects without any idea of the hazards lurking in their attics, behind their walls or under their floors.

That's why Asbestos.com created the Asbestos Guide — a handy reference for homeowners or anyone who may come in contact with building materials containing asbestos, a toxic mineral known to cause cancers such as mesothelioma and other life-threatening conditions.

The Asbestos Guide includes:

  •     A detailed diagram showing possible locations of asbestos in your home
  •     How to identify common asbestos products used in home construction
  •     Tips on what to do if you or your loved ones were exposed to asbestos
  •     Health risks associated with asbestos exposure
  •     How to test for asbestos in your home
  •     Safety do's and don'ts
  •     Common exposure scenarios

Linda Reinstein, CEO of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, the largest U.S. nonprofit dedicated to eliminating diseases caused by deadly asbestos, says the Asbestos Guide created by Asbestos.com "addresses a number of topics for those concerned about or interested in learning more about asbestos. As we say here at ADAO, 'Hear Asbestos. Think Prevention.'"

Since 2004, ADAO has educated the public and lawmakers about the dangers of asbestos.
