    Re: Concerned about possible asbestos exposure for no specific reason.

    I’ve researched this, and if I am going to get mesothelioma, I can expect to get it any day now, as my potential exposure would have happened roughly 25-29 years ago. Getting mesothelioma at such a young age is not something I ever considered...

Seeing as how my dad is pretty knowledgeable about home improvement and how asbestos has been viewed as a health threat since the 1970s, I imagine the potential for things to contain asbestos must have crossed his mind. Like I said, I know he had the old kitchen floor tested, and that was definitely asbestos-free, but my concern is mostly regarding the original walls and what was behind them. Also, the attic has fiberglass insulation, and the furnace definitely never had asbestos around it, so I canít really think of anything else that would have contained asbestos besides the old walls and maybe some old wallpaper (regular paper, not vinyl, I believe).
    It sounds like your chances of having any asbestos contact from your house are very slim. That's a good idea to ask you dad so he can address your concerns directly and let you know how unlikely it is for mesothelioma to be a problem.
