Asbestos Companies Serving Los Angeles, CA

Are you worried about asbestos in your home, commercial property, school, or another property? Asbestos is a very serious carcinogen that has been found to be harmful to human health. Asbestos was used in almost every property before the 1970s because of its excellent fire retardant and insulating properties. So many properties in the US were built before asbestos was discovered to be harmful, and lots of them are still being used today. To keep inhabitants and visitors safe, it’s important to have every property tested for asbestos. Thankfully if you own or manage a property in Los Angeles, CA, H2 Environmental Consulting Services is here to meet all your asbestos testing and remediation needs. Call us at (800) 524-3578 to determine whether there is asbestos in your residence or business and get this problem corrected.

Where could asbestos be in my property?

Asbestos could be present in various areas of your property including:

  • Insulation (in homes built between 1930 and 1950)
  • Textured paint used on ceilings and walls
  • Roofing shingles and sealants
  • Vinyl flooring and adhesives
  • Pipes in older homes may be coated with it or covered by tapes or blankets made with it
  • Gaskets in coal and oil furnaces
  • Sprayed-on ceiling material used for acoustics
  • Wire insulation or stovetop pads in older homes
  • Exhaust flues and older HVAC ducting

What’s the big deal about asbestos?

Though asbestos is a naturally occurring material, it’s important to limit exposure to asbestos because it has been linked to various diseases including asbestosis (a lung disease that causes scarring on the tissues of the lungs which limits the ability of oxygen to enter the bloodstream), mesothelioma (a cancer affecting the lining of the lungs, abdomen, chest, and heart that often shows up many years after exposure), and lung cancer. These diseases can take up to 30 years to develop.

Prevent all exposure to asbestos to ensure continued health and safety of all who inhabit your property in Los Angeles, CA.
