Calgary Asbestos Removal

If you plan on upgrading your home then the words "renovation" and "demolition" are common words that come to mind during your home project, but one word many people forget to consider is, "asbestos".  

The first question many people ask is "What is asbestos?"  

Before 1987 many builders chose asbestos to insulate infrastructure against cold weather, noise and fireproofing. Not only can it be found in your home's insulation, but asbestos has also been known to be present in other materials such as: 

  • Paint 
  • Drywall 
  • Sealants 
  • Cement material 
  • Blown Ceilings  

Why is The Recognition Of Asbestos Important?

When there is a renovation or demolition taking place, if asbestos is not abated properly, it becomes hazardous when the asbestos fibres release into the air. When these fibres become airborne, asbestos has been known to cause multiple illnesses such as asbestosis and various cancers such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.

What Steps Do I Take To Check If My Home Has Asbestos?

One way to find out if asbestos may be present in your home is by checking the original building documents if you have gain access to them. If your home was originally constructed before 1987, there is a good chance your home may have asbestos. Asbestos has also been used to insulate boilers, pipes, and furnaces, so without the help of a trained professional it can become difficult to gauge how much asbestos is present in your home.
