Asbestos in Homes

Although private residences have the same potential to contain asbestos-containing material as a public and commercial building, the asbestos regulations in Wyoming do not extend to private residences, unless the renovation or demolition activity is being performed to allow the property/facility to become public or commercial.

We strongly suggest that trained Asbestos Building Inspectors be hired to collect samples of any suspect material that needs to be tested for asbestos content prior to disturbance, but they are not required to be used in private residences. Please be aware that samples collected by a homeowner or other person not currently trained as an Asbestos Building Inspector may not hold up in a court of law. 

Please call 307-777-7394 if you need additional information.
