    This is very interesting Ryan. I have really never heard of this in our area. It looks like it could be a concern if the levels are high enough. Crazy question, but are there any detectors (like carbon monoxide detectors) that alert you when you levels are too high?

      I’m not aware of a NOA detector. If someone knows of something, I would be very open to hear. I simply disclose something like the following in my report, “El Dorado Hills is noted in portions to have naturally-occuring asbestos in the soil. It is unknown if the subject property has naturally-occuring asbestos.”
