Covina Asbestos Testing
Your Safety Is Our Priority
Asbestos was commonly used in building materials throughout the first half of the 20th century. By the 1970s, the truth the asbestos industry was hiding finally came to light, as the public and government officials learned that asbestos is highly toxic and exposure to the fibers can result in lung cancer and mesothelioma. Because we consider your health and safety as our top priorities, Courtesy Plumbing always make it a point to test for asbestos in Covina and the San Gabriel Valley before we open the walls in older homes.

Dangers of Exposure to Asbestos Dust
While asbestos is no longer used in building materials, many homes and older buildings contain asbestos in insulation and other materials. The fibers are most dangerous when they are airborne, as can happen when you cut into a wall for a plumbing job or home renovation. This puts the technicians working in the home and the family living there at risk of exposure.
Asbestos is commonly found in:
- Drywall patching compounds
- Stove and pipe insulation
- Floor tiles
- Roofing materials
A visual inspection is not sufficient for detecting asbestos. California has strict regulations governing asbestos testing and abatement. If asbestos is detected, it is important to have licensed professionals with specialized equipment safely remove asbestos materials and prevent accidental exposure.
