Plumbing Equipment May Have Asbestos

The asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart are constantly hearing of new ways in which people are exposed to this harmful substance. While this reality is unfortunate, there is also a positive aspect to the gathering and compiling of this information. That positive aspect is that the more our asbestos lawyers learn, the more opportunity we have to communicate different risks and things to avoid to the general public.

While we are a law firm, our asbestos lawyers would like nothing better than to have our business dissipate because fewer and fewer people are exposed to asbestos due to the information they acquired. This is precisely why we will continue to provide you with any information we receive regarding places and materials to avoid, as that’s the least we can do for you.

Below is one set of products that can be dangerous if you’re exposed to it directly. If you have been exposed to this harmful substance, contact the asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart immediately for a free consultation.

Materials to Treat with Caution – Plumbing Equipment

Plumbers usually understand the potential risks involved with different types of materials and equipment, as they are generally trained in regards to their own safety and long-term health. This was especially important when asbestos was used prominently in the plumbing field due to its benefits as an insulator. However, if you’re a “do-it-yourselfer,” you may not be aware of all of these risks. Below are a few items that contained asbestos in the past:

  • Boiler insulation
  • Pipe insulation
  • Cooling towers

Of course, these are just three of many products that contained asbestos in the past. If you discover that your plumbing is more than 20 years old, the first thing you need to do is contact a licensed plumbing contractor to determine if any of these materials are contaminated. Do not attempt to remove them yourself.

If you have been exposed, contact the asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart for a free initial consultation.
