  • City of Calgary Requires Removal of Asbestos Before Demolition or Building Permits Can Be Granted

Before any building or demolition permit will be released, the City of Calgary requires an Asbestos Abatement Information Form (AAIF) to be filled out. This requires an expert to conduct a survey of the building facility for any hazardous materials. This survey includes lab testing for the presence of asbestos content. Depending on the results of the survey, you may be required to have the hazardous material removed by a licensed professional like 24/7 Restoration. Asbestos removal includes protective equipment and devices, correct handling and proper transport of the hazardous material to a facility that has been certified and approved to safely dispose of it. Before demolition can ultimately take place, air testing of the building might be required.

Homes and buildings that were built before 1987 are the usual culprits of asbestos contamination. Here are just a few areas and materials to watch out for:

  • Drywall mud and joint compound
  • Block fill insulation
  • Attic insulation
  • Glue and lay-in on ceiling tiles
  • Vinyl tiles
  • Linoleum-type sheet flooring
  • Fireproofing
  • Pipe Insulation
