Reported possible asbestos in our rental home, there is a decaying wall in the cabinets of the kitchen and landlord replied with this:
It doesn’t look like asbestos to me. But even if it is. It has to be in the air. Your fear is emotional. It’s not based on truth. I’ve been around and know a decent amount about asbestos. I’ve never been around a situation where it’s been dangerous. If asbestos is contained it’s fine and that doesn’t look like asbestos to me. If it’s thrown up in the air and or you are using saws on it and cutting it and then you basically inhale it in large quantities it might cause harm. This isn’t even remotely that kind of a problem. Not even in the same hemisphere. Stop worrying get a good night sleep and Jim hopefully will be there tomorrow to check it 👍🏻
What’re my rights here? Can I ask the landlord to have the house checked for asbestos and lead?
