Evanston, IL is known for its diverse range of homes, including Victorian-style houses, bungalows, and mid-century modern homes. Many of these homes were built between the late 1800s and the early 1900s, during a period of significant growth and development in the area. In recent years, there has also been an increase in new construction, with modern homes being built alongside the historic houses that give Evanston its unique character.  Almost any home can have Asbestos in one form or another – the most susceptible to Asbestos would be any home that existed prior to the 1980’s, as asbestos may have been used in the construction of the home, or added to the home in some way during a remodeling project.

    Asbestos can be found in many materials, including floor and ceiling tiles, HVAC ducting, piping, furnace insulation, sprayed-on fireproofing and sound insulation, siding, and even certain types of paint. Unfortunately, asbestos fibers are impossible to smell, see, or taste, and can only be identified through laboratory testing.
