LOS ANGELES COUNTY – ASBESTOS INSPECTION
The incorporation of asbestos into construction materials, most commonly insulation, popcorn ceiling textures, vinyl materials, stucco, and asphalt roofing, was pervasive up to 1978, when many of its uses were outlawed. Despite these regulatory efforts, some asbestos-containing substances are still used, and contaminated products still remain in existing structures. For instance, in Los Angeles County 77.4% of homes were built before the anti-asbestos rules were put into place, meaning there is a high likelihood that those homes have asbestos.
Due to this danger, the law requires that for any work to be done on buildings in Los Angeles County, an asbestos inspection be done. Environmental Inspection Services will send asbestos consultants certified by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health to help you follow all regulations and furnish you with a full report.
Sampling requirements are outlined by regulatory agencies. For a better picture of what we would need with regard to samples for a building in San Francisco County, contact us.
