I’ve lived in current house my entire life and never really took notice of the insulation in our basement. A week or so ago I asked my father, who’s workshop is in the basement, what kind of insulation was around our pipes. He said he thinks its asbestos, but that so long as its in good shape that it’s worse to try and encapsulate / remove it than just leaving it alone. I took look at all the pipes, and found some areas that don’t look too good (see attached photos). Should I be worried about these areas? Nothing touches these pipes, laundry is done in the basement and my fathers shop is in an area that is away from them. Should I look into having it removed or simply leave it be? What’s done is done, but I would like to avoid anymore bad exposure in the future.
Thanks for the help.
