Cincinnati Mesothelioma Attorneys

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partially banned asbestos, including asbestos used in residential home siding--but many Cincinnati homes can still be found with asbestos siding.

What is the Problem With Asbestos Siding in Cincinnati?

Asbestos is a very strong, heat-resistant construction material. It is also a great insulator. Hence, the home siding construction industry embraced the material. When asbestos fibers are encased in a material like cement siding, a home could be safe as long as the siding remains undisturbed. If a siding piece breaks off, is damaged by a storm is disturbed by a thrown object like a baseball, lethal asbestos fibers could be released into the air.

It is a Long Wait

Asbestos can cause diseases like:

  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung Cancer
  • Lung Scarring

One issue with asbestos exposure is the latency period. Lung symptoms can wait to appear even 50 years after exposure. If you were exposed to asbestos in the 1970s, you could be finally seeing symptoms today.

Cincinnati Asbestos Siding

Cincinnati asbestos siding has 12 x 24 shingles or shakes; its texture is very chalky. It may exhibit certain fake wood grain patterns. If you are lucky enough to have old cartons of the siding, you can call the siding manufacturer to help determine if asbestos was used in the siding construction.

Mandatory Removal

If you have found that you indeed have asbestos in your home siding, do you have to have it removed? If the siding is not intact, is flaking, is falling apart, or is damaged in any way, the answer is yes.

Will Paint Help?

Again, if the siding is damaged, you should not do anything else to disturb it. If it is damaged in any way, paint will not help. Regardless, you need to wear proper protective gear when dealing with any asbestos-containing material (ACM).

Furthermore, there are a number of reputable asbestos testing agencies in Cincinnati that can help you determine if you have a dangerous home siding situation.

Not Only a Residential Issue

Unfortunately, asbestos exposure is not only a residential problem. Big-time asbestos risks have occurred on naval ships and at many manufacturing plants. There are asbestos issues at many sites across the United States and Cincinnati is not immune.

Cincinnati Area Asbestos Exposure Site List
  • Ellis Engine
  • Fairmont Food
  • Kroger
  • Master Pattern Foundry
  • Brighton Automotive
  • C & I Girdler
  • General Electric
  • Napoleon Steel

Workers from the 1970s could be experiencing lung symptoms today and asbestos exposure could be the culprit. Make sure you research any asbestos issues and check to see if you were present at any site, plants, or areas where dangerous asbestos fibers could have been released.
