Hi Again Tom,

One more question. I have the guy's name who did the floor tear up. I'm wondering if I should report his slipshod work to somebody. My brother says he has called it in occasionally in the past when he saw blatantly unsafe practices or insisted on abatement. Just a thought. I'm not looking to get anybody in trouble, but on the other hand I don't want this happening to somebody else. My thought is the guy was a lunkhead and didn't realize what he was doing.

Thanks.

Chris

Well, its been a while since I checked in at the forum, so apologies for not seeing your questions. With regard to your concerns, you have done all you can to eliminate the source of potential asbestos dusts from the renovation prior to your move-in. Continuing exposure seems to be a non-issue.

If I dwelled on all my past exposures, life would be less enjoyable. My judgement is that it is unlikely you or your family received any appreciable or dangerous exposures. You were not present when any dusts were airborne during renovation, and its unlikely that residues under the corners could have been disrupted to cause a problem. Your work practices and efforts are commendable. Good job.

Hope this can offer you some peace of mind. The types, dosage and duration of exposure just don't add up to significance from a toxicological point of view.
