What To Do If You Suspect Asbestos In Your Office
Posted in Asbestos Removal, on May 13, 2021
In a commercial office building built before the 1980s, it’s not uncommon to find asbestos-laden materials throughout. At the time, many basic construction materials contained asbestos and it was used for a variety of applications.
Today, for the most part, asbestos is not incorporated into construction materials, mainly because of the health risks. The problem, of course, is that office renovations and remodelling might uncover asbestos.
In the event that asbestos is suspected in an office space, it's best to undertake some testing. And for asbestos testing in Toronto, it’s best to hire professionals who have the experience and expertise to do the work.
More than that, in certain situations, asbestos remediation may be required. Here again, for asbestos removal in Toronto, it’s best to have the work done professionally to ensure the best possible long-term results.
Undertaking Office Renovation Work
In a commercial building built before 1990, it’s essential to know whether asbestos material is present before doing any renovation work. The only way to know is to conduct professional asbestos testing in Toronto that's performed by a qualified asbestos specialist.
During a renovation or demolition, people can be exposed to asbestos particles when the proper precautions aren’t taken. The fact is, asbestos fibres can be released into the air and can pose serious health hazards with potential health dangers.
