Enkay Engineering has been providing Southern California the best, safest and most thorough asbestos abatement services available since 1986.
Before 1978, when asbestos production was banned in the U.S., this toxic substance was commonly used in many building materials in order to strengthen and heat- or sound-insulate the buildings in which they were used. These materials included popcorn ceilings, dry-wall plaster, heating ducts, linoleum and tile, and many others. Although asbestos production was banned in 1978, builders were allowed to use up the asbestos stocks that remained, meaning that houses built before 1987 may still have asbestos in their acoustic ceilings. Asbestos abatement may be necessary when asbestos in a building is exposed and therefore poses health risks to people.
California law dictates that homeowners provide a written document informing a buyer of the existence of any asbestos in the home prior to sale. Where asbestos is exposed and poses a health risk on a commercial property, the owner(s) is legally required to procure certified asbestos abatement services to remove or seal off the hazardous material. Even buildings that are to be torn down, if they contain asbestos, require safe removal of the asbestos before demolition can begin. We provide asbestos evaluation and abatement services in all of these situations and many more.
It is important that asbestos abatement be done carefully and safely by trained, certified workers with hands-on experience, so that the exposed portion of asbestos is successfully removed or sealed off and no toxic particles spread beyond the work area. Enkay Engineering puts up critical barriers around the site to protect your and others' safety, and we dispose of all materials safely according to EPA and OSHA rules and regulations. Once the asbestos is removed, we collect an air sample at the site that is then tested for its level of asbestos to ensure the site is safe.
We are fully insured, licensed and bonded, certified by the California Department of Industrial Relations' division of Occupational Safety and Health, and LEAD certified by the EPA. All of our technicians are AHERA certified to work in public buildings, and all of our work is performed in accordance with, and in most cases exceeds, standards set by SCAQMD, NIOSH, OSHA, and EPA. You can rely on us to provide the best asbestos abatement services in Southern California, getting the job done correctly, safely, on time and within budget, so that you can rest easy during the job and breathe easier when its done.
