Friday Links: Lead Paint in Butte, Bed Bugs in Chicago and More

Friday links

Happy Friday! Yours truly is spending the day volunteering, but it doesn't stop me from publishing a Friday Links blog for your perusal!

Asbestos:

In a story that gladdens the heart of all reputable asbestos removal companies (nudge, nudge), a company in Albany, New York was recently fined $83,000 for safety violations and exposing their employees to asbestos. Let's hope nothing comes of that! Alliance would never let anything like that happen.

Bed Bugs:

You probably heard that Chicago was named the 2012 #1 US City for bedbugs this week and after you read this story you can see why! A condominium resident apparently refused to treat his bed bug infestation and it got really bad.

Mold:

The damage from Superstorm Sandy continues, as insurance inspectors are finding mold in the homes that survived the storm but were flooded.

Lead Paint:

In Butte, Montana, 100 year old ghost signs sport long-lasting lettering which is both "a savior and a curse," according to KXLF news. The signs are still visible on the sides of buildings, but as they chip off due to age and weathering, the lead paint becomes a hazard. The signs are definitely an interesting feature of the city, but may not be worth the health hazards they pose.

Have a wonderful weekend!
