Hi! We have a 55 yr old house and like all the houses in our neighborhood, there is an access panel to the back of our bathtub. Our handyman was changing our bathtub fixtures and when he opened up the access panel, there was a whiteish sheet covering the back of the bathtub. It appeared "squishy."
He commented that the it was "wet" drywall that had been damaged by faulty tiles around the bathtub.
My concern is...could this actually be asbestos insulation? I'm not even sure it would be drywall since our walls are actually plaster.
I am very concerned about it possibly being asbestos b/c the access panel is in our guestroom and on the mainfloor of our house where our baby daughter plays.
