Even New Buildings May Have Hidden Asbestos Hazards

All Clear Environmental, a hazardous materials removal and demolition company, seeks to warn the public about hidden asbestos in construction that occurred after the EPA ban in 1989.

"Despite the Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule, many properties built after that year still incorporate dangerous levels of asbestos. This is primarily due to the use of building materials that were fabricated abroad," said Shaheen Ahmed. He continues, "Every property, regardless of age, needs to be inspected when renovation or demolition occurs." The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), the governing board for pollution control in Southern California, has also recently recognized this hazard.

Mr. Ahmed and business partner Larry Enos have seen the dangers firsthand. All Clear's seasoned staff possesses over 100 years of combined experience in handling hazardous materials, abatement, and remediation. As a licensed, bonded and insured Environmental Specialty Contractor, they have worked diligently to make Southern California's schools, workplaces and homes safer.

All Clear's community responsibility doesn't end at the worksite. In addition to volunteering time and resources to local beautification and cultural non-profits like the Garden of Angels and the Ensemble Studio Theatre, All Clear also provides financial support to children-centric efforts like Shane's Inspiration, the Alhambra Education Foundation, and Camp Discovery for Special Needs Kids.

All Clear Environmental is based in North Hollywood and is Southern California's leading provider of lead abatement, mold remediation, and asbestos removal. The company has served colleges, universities, schools, hospitals, and industrial sites as well as residential projects. For projects large and small, All Clear Environmental is the one-stop shop for all hazardous waste removal and demolition in Southern California.
