Asbestos is considered to be a designated substance as stated by the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Many homes in Canada built prior to 1980 will still have some form of ACM (Asbestos Containing Material). Most home owners are unsuspecting of the material in there home until they begin a renovation project. At Rapid Mold Removal we have experienced experts ready to rid your home of asbestos.
Long-term exposure of asbestos can lead to fibres entering the lung tissue, causing scarring and eventually leading to fibrosis. In Canada, asbestos is the leading cause of Mesothelioma. Asbestos is most commonly found in insulation, linings of the HVAC components, roofing materials, flooring, caulking and plaster. Deterioration or disturbing theses materials increase health risks.
Our Removal Process
At Rapid Mold Removal, we have seen how asbestos gets damaged over time. Our inspectors are well trained in what the common signs are and can give you a proper assessment and identify any risk(s) associated. If you suspect that your home might have asbestos and you have recently experienced water damage, flooding, or abrasions in any of the areas where it exists in your home, contact us and we will assess what steps are needed.
Homes that have recently experienced water damage or flooding are of particular danger. Asbestos is only toxic when bits of it have been broken and the fibers are released. After it is breathed in, the tiny cancerous fibers rip at your lungs causing small tears, damaging your lung tissue. One common misconception is that material is only a risk when dry. Water damage can rip open the connecting fibers in the asbestos within your home and when it drys, it is measurably weaker and easy to break. Once it breaks, that’s when asbestos begins shredding the lungs apart.
But it doesn’t have to be that way for your family. Our team of asbestos removal experts have the equipment and the knowledge to clear your house of the toxic material. After complete consultation, our team will walk you through step by step of how we will safely and securely perform asbestos abatement. We’ll explain the prep work that will create barriers in your home while we work so that we can protect your treasured items. Once the prep is done, we’ll take you through the process of the asbestos removal as we excavate the substance from the structure. After talk of the complete removal, we can discuss what plans you have for the area of the home we are removing the asbestos from and what materials need to now be in place.
