I have just purchased a home that was built in 1968. While removing the wall paper in the bathroom, I discovered several layers. I finally found one end that went through all the different layers off wallpaper. I pulled it back and the whole sheet of wallpaper came off only to reveal brown, hard stuff which I am assuming is wallpaper glue all over the wall. While I was scraping at it (of course it would not come off!) the questioned crossed my mind that this could be asbestos. I know that I am paranoid and in researching on the internet, I do not think I have anything to worry about, but....
Does anyone know if asbestos is found behind wallpaper or in the glue?
