My family is in need of assistance. After several years of not having a permanent home, somewhere to raise my kids in may 2015 we finally had our own home. This July, a pipe burst in the house damaging the floors, we followed procedures, call the insurance company, they made a claim and gave the numbers few clean up crew. The crew came in took up old floors, until they reached these possible asbestos tiles. They stopped pulling floors but continued with putting their high powered blowers on the cracked prospective asbestos tiles. I have researched some stuff about asbestos, if undisurbed it is not really harmful, however if tiles are not in good condition and they are broken up it is easily disturbed. This crew has disturbed this possibility toxic fiber into the home of my 2 yr old, 3 yr old and 10 yr old and expect it to not be disturbed more. So in order to keep my children from being exposed I Am having to rent hotel rooms until I'm able to see what the insurance company is going to do or what the company of this crew is going to do or I can pay for testing and removal myself, which I understand this removal is very expensive, the testing alone is around 400.00. I just want a happy, healthy, safe home for my children.
