Asbestos Testing & Removal

Asbestos Removal You Can Depend On

Asbestos can be a very dangerous substance. It was used very widely across North America as a fire-resistant material in building houses, as well as insulation. However, by the 1980s asbestos became banned from use due it its carcinogenic effects – it was proven to contribute to cancer in the lungs and throat if inhaled for a long period of time.

Common places to discover asbestos are:

  • Old floor and  ceiling tiles
  • Roof shingles and siding
  • Insulation (around boilers, ducts, pipes, sheeting, fireplaces)
  • Pipe cement and joint compound

What Makes Asbestos Dangerous?

Asbestos becomes a hazard when it is released into the air. If asbestos in the home becomes damaged or moved, asbestos fibers may be released. For example, when asbestos around a boiler or furnace breaks down, it releases dust. Ceilings with asbestos may release fibers when they are drilled into to install something or during renovations.

Many houses were made with asbestos as insulation and simply have not had the opportunity to be fixed.  If your house was built in the 20th century, before or around the 1980s, there is a good chance your home may have asbestos.  Some newer houses may also contain asbestos.

If you do discover asbestos in your home, do not touch or disturb it!  Asbestos fibres released into the air are directly linked to carcinogenic effects on the human body.  Instead, call our professional asbestos removal team to help clear your home of the toxic substance.  We’ll work with your insurance company to handle your claim and make the process as stress-free as possible for you.

If where you discover asbestos is an area of high traffic, wear protection over your mouth, nose, eyes, and skin before investigating further – and even then, your priority should be calling Certified Asbestos Removal Inc., Calgary’s most trusted professional asbestos removal company.
