How Does Asbestos Testing Work?
Posted in Asbestos Removal, on December 02, 2020
Most homeowners probably don’t know if they have asbestos inside their home, particularly if they live in an older home. Before the substance was banned, asbestos material was used widely in building materials, home insulation, and even interior décor.
Homeowners requiring asbestos removal in Toronto have likely discovered some asbestos-laden material in the home. When left completely undisturbed there is minimal risk. However, once it’s discovered asbestos material should be professionally removed.
In Toronto, Canada's Restoration Services offers various asbestos abatement services, including asbestos testing in Toronto. With asbestos, there’s only one way to resolve the issue – hiring a trained professional to guarantee the best long-term outcomes.
Asbestos Testing in Toronto
By any definition, asbestos testing should only be conducted by a trained technician. This is a material that requires expert handling from removal to disposal. Anything short can pose serious health hazards from direct exposure.
When asbestos is discovered, testing is a very good first step. In fact, there are strict industry guidelines and regulations for dealing with asbestos. Amongst other things, testing will accurately reveal the extent of airborne fibres.
Professional Asbestos Tests
At Canada's Restoration Services, we send asbestos samples to an independent third-party lab for testing and verification. This is an essential part of our abatement process and an important step before any asbestos removal is undertaken.
Once inspection and testing have been completed, CRS sets up a containment area in order to prevent any chance of asbestos cross-contamination. We use certified disposal bags to properly dispose of all removed asbestos-laden materials.
