From the Contra Costa Times:
Q I’m pregnant and will be remodeling my home soon. Is there anything I should be aware of (off-gassing, asbestos, glues, etc.) that could hurt my unborn baby or me?
A There are two points during a remodeling project that are critical times at which to consider the impact of potentially hazardous materials.
The first is during demolition, when materials are removed or disturbed, as some of the materials may have been manufactured with known toxins such as asbestos and lead.
The second is during the construction phase, when you should be aware of potentially harmful products used to manufacture building materials that will go in your home.
