Asbestos Vinyl Wallpaper

Being made of tiny fibers of asbestos, the worker was in danger of inhaling the microscopic particles without even knowing. This could have happened when the wallpaper was glued to the walls, cut, ripped or torn down.

Vinyl was already a flexible and strong material, being used for a variety of products. Vinyl wallpaper was one of the most sought-after decorative products due to its easy installation process. Asbestos fibers were added into the content of vinyl wallpaper in order to increase its durability even more and to give it the ability of resisting to extreme heat.

Wallpaper required to be glued onto surfaces which usually meant that had to be ripped off when it required removal. This would have put the workers performing the removal in a highly hazardous situation as the environment got quickly contaminated with poisonous microscopic asbestos particles. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You worked directly with vinyl wallpaper before the 1980’s
  • You performed demolition work
  • You did remodeling work in old buildings
  • You were involved in asbestos abatement projects
