Asbestos in duct work

Ellen Dunbar
last year

My daughter recently bought a house that had friable asbestos around some of the duct work. Before we found out it was asbestos she was vacuuming in the basement near the friable asbestos. (Vacuuming cob webs). We are getting it professionally removed and encapsulated by an abatement company but I can’t stop worrying about when was vacuuming. This was 3 months ago and she had since used the same vacuum all over the house. I had air testing done (TEM) and we are awaiting those results but I’m so afraid of her now getting mesothelioma. I can’t stop worrying. She is only 23 and has her whole life to live.
