Asbestos Removal in Encino, CA
Encino homes are definitely not cheap. According to Zillow, the median home value in Encino is $991,500. Even in a home this expensive, asbestos containing materials (ACM) may be present, especially if it was constructed prior to 1980 which according to CLR Search is more than 64% of Encino homes.
The presence of ACM lying still is usually no reason for concern. It’s when it becomes “friable” and its fibers are released in to the air that you should be alarmed. A perfect example is when a ceiling that had sprayed on asbestos insulation gets damaged. Suddenly those fibers are airborne which can pose a heath risk to anyone that inhales them.
Need Encino Asbestos Removal? Here is What To Expect
If a licensed inspector has discovered asbestos in your Encino home or business and recommends it be removed, we can help. Each member of our removal team has 10 years experience on average and will know how to resolve your issue. They are highly trained to handle and dispose asbestos found in ceiling tiles, floor tiles, siding shingles, and other locations.
Based on your inspection report, we will know the location of affected area in order for us to begin. We will take multiple steps to safely contain and prepare the area to minimize the risk of asbestos fibers being released in the air as we work. Customers often ask if it’s possible to just scrap away the asbestos material but leave the product the asbestos is attached to or surrounded by alone. For example, just remove the asbestos containing lagging cloth adhered to air and cooling ducts. Unfortunately that is rarely possible. To ensure ALL the asbestos is removed in compliance with federal and state laws, we will almost always have to remove everything. In the above mentioned example your ducting would also have to be disposed of.
