Asbestos Testing & Removal
Asbestos Testing & Removal Victoria
Asbestos is a versatile product. Due to its ability to withstand heat, erosion and decay, and for its fire and water resistant properties, asbestos was widely used in building materials for residential premises until it started to be phased out in the 1980s. Building materials containing asbestos are still prevalent in our community today. Asbestos comes in a variety of colours and types.
Legislation was introduced in 1978 to ban asbestos from building materials.
However, many homes built prior to 1990 contain some asbestos, and the older your home is the higher the chance that asbestos containing materials could be present, and now in British Columbia it is legislated that all potential materials that may contain asbestos must be tested first before removal.
When the fibres are inhaled they become lodged in the lungs, they cause scarring that eventually leads to cancer. The safe removal of asbestos containing materials is handled properly with West Coast Removal.
