What is Asbestos?  

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that can be positively identified only with a special type of microscope. There are several types of asbestos fibers. In the past, asbestos was added to a variety of products to strengthen them and to provide heat insulation and fire resistance. Home Owners can supplement their knowledge with the information offered in this guide.   

The purpose of this article is twofold. First, at Medina Home Inspection Company, we’d like you to take measures to keep your garage free from fire. Fortunately, there are ways this can be done, some of which are described below. Secondly, garage fires do happen, and we’d like you to make sure that a fire cannot not easily spread to the rest of your house. While you can perform many of the recommendations in this article yourself, it is a good idea to hire us to make sure your home is safe from a garage fire.

The following items are essential tools, but this list is by no means exhaustive. Feel free to ask a Medina Home Inspection Company inspector during your next inspection about other tools that you might find useful.
