Since many building materials can contain asbestos, remodel and repair activity in residential and commercial structures which removes asbestos-containing materials may cause the release of asbestos fibers into the air.
Asbestos is not required to be removed unless it will be disturbed during the renovation or demolition. There is no known health threat if asbestos-containing materials are in good condition and left undisturbed.
Once you have received the survey, you will need to have the asbestos abated by a licensed asbestos contractor and submit the survey and the “Asbestos Renovation/Demolition Survey & Notification Form” to the local AQMD where they will be reviewed for completeness.
Once approved, the local AQMD will stamp your form (within 2 business days from day the localof submittal) and return it to you so that you may bring it to the building department and receive your permit provided that you have met their requirements.

EPA- Mold Health Hazards
Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.
