Dangers of Asbestos
Exposure to asbestos dust can be very dangerous to human health. In many cases, people do not even realize they have been exposed as the symptoms of most asbestos related illnesses tend to manifest years later. Many of these diseases, including Mesothelioma and lung cancer are often fatal as they are often untreatable at the late stages. Because of how easily a person can end up inhaling this dangerous substance, it is best to have a professional assess the likelihood of asbestos having been released into the air.
While it is possible to undertake testing on your own using commercially available kits, we recommend giving us a call so a specialist can step in to determine, not just if there is asbestos exposure, but to what degree. We test the damaged areas, dust on surfaces and air quality to provide you the most comprehensive results. Our testing is done free of charge so there is no need to worry about unnecessary expenses arising.
We recommend that if you discover damage to your property in areas likely to feature asbestos materials, that you simply close off the room and call us to carry out an assessment. This is especially important with older buildings, the majority of which feature the use of asbestos materials in such as wall insulation, pipe covering, vinyl floor tiles and siding shingles.

Asbestos is a very common material used in the construction of homes, vehicles and other items. Despite its usefulness in these areas, it can be highly dangerous when airborne and inhaled by humans. There has been sufficient evidence over the years to prove that exposure to asbestos dust can lead to several very serious ailments, many of which can be difficult to detect in the early stages and possibly fatal.
Many Canadian homes have been built with materials that contain asbestos. This is due to delays in banning its use. Many homes that are older than 5 years will likely have some aspect of the construction featuring asbestos, including insulation, spackling, exterior sidings and ductwork. If the affected areas remain undisturbed, the occupants of the building can likely avoid exposure to the dust. If there is however some renovation work or damage that disturbs these areas, then asbestos dust may go airborne and contaminate the property, making it unsafe for habitation.
