We are the experts that you need in order to ensure that asbestos and its associated hazards are safely removed from your homes and businesses.
While asbestos has not been widely used for construction and production within Canada in recent years, having been made illegal for use in Canada in 1978, various exceptions in the law allowed for many homes and other buildings built up to the 1990s to continue the using asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos can be found in products like insulation, plaster, floor and ceiling tiles, house siding, stucco, drywall, popcorn textures, and more. While there is no hazard so long as these materials are intact and undisturbed, any damage could release asbestos fibres into the air, where they are likely to be inhaled and cause harm.
As a potent carcinogen and health hazard, removing asbestos from your home or business yourself is heavily discouraged. When performed improperly, asbestos removal can severely increase the risk of exposing yourself to asbestos fibres and inhaling them, which can result in cancer and other illnesses later on. It is always best to rely on our professionals for safe and experienced asbestos removal and abatement.
Asbestos should only be removed by a team of qualified experts who possess the experience and knowledge to remove asbestos safely from your property, without exposing you and those around you to any potential health hazards. You can rely on our knowledge, attention to safety, and commitment to customer service to get the job done right.
