Where Do I Need Asbestos Testing?
Although its use has been virtually banned in Canada for more than 30 years, it’s no surprise to find asbestos-containing materials still lingering in properties, especially in older ones. Asbestos testing in Mississauga and elsewhere in the GTA continues to find asbestos in these common materials: ceiling, flooring and roofing tiles, drywall, cement sheets and insulation. While each product serves a different purpose, asbestos removal in Mississauga should always be left to professionals.
Asbestos was mixed into the materials mentioned above for two primary reasons: its cheap price and its resistance to fire, which also improved the product’s insulation and durability. The most commonly utilized type of asbestos was Chrysotile (white asbestos), used in the production of walls, ceilings and roofs. Amosite (brown asbestos) was also popular, frequently mixed into pipe insulation and cement sheets.
Here are 5 places that asbestos could be lurking:
- Roofing and siding
- Pipes and ducts
- Ceiling tiles
- Floor coverings
