On most home insurance policies, asbestos removal is an exclusion. However, in some cases, you can get coverage for “pollution,” which can include asbestos. Typically, you can use the pollution coverage if the asbestos has been disturbed and is causing health concerns. In older homes it is common to find asbestos, and in most cases this does not pose any immediate threat unless it is disturbed or in the air.
