Is this an asbestos HVAC boot cover?
My wife and I just closed on our home. I was down in the basement, putting some aluminum tape to cover some old HVAC tape our inspector believed some asbestos. And I noticed the attached HVAC boot.
This looks like an asbestos covering to me… But I want to see if there’s a way to encapsulate rather than remove. Would spraying something like Gorilla’s Patch and Seal Spray seal it well enough to be safe? There’s no indication I can tell that it’s anywhere inside the venting at all.
