24/7 Asbestos Removal & Testing Services in Edmonton
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used as a building material for houses and buildings before the 1990's, mainly for insulation. Asbestos is no longer being used, but it can still be found in homes and buildings. If you are wondering where asbestos can be found, it can be found in many places, commonly in attics, insulation, pipes, shingles, tiles, cement, flooring and ceiling.
Vermiculite is also a mineral that was used as a building material, mainly for insulation as well. There are two types of vermiculite insulation: vermiculite insulation with asbestos and vermiculite insulation without asbestos.
What Are the Dangers of Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos exposure occurs when the fibres of asbestos are released into the air and inhaled by someone within the vicinity. Once asbestos becomes airborne, it progressively multiplies, dividing itself into smaller fibres primed for inhalation. The danger of asbestos is usually linked to the types of asbestos: blue, white, or brown, which all have varying properties. Typically the more rigid the asbestos, the more severe lung damage it can cause. Asbestos is the most commonly found asbestos in household and commercial applications, and it is considered the least harmful of all. However, this does not mean that it is by any means safe. If you think you've encountered asbestos of any kind, don't try to identify it. Call Canada's Restoration Service for accurate, 3rd party asbestos testing in Edmonton.
Asbestos exposure can result in a range of chronic lung diseases like cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis.
Are You At Risk for Asbestos Exposure?
Was your property built or renovated prior to 1980? You may need professional asbestos removal in Edmonton.
Canadian asbestos regulations started to pop up in 1981. Still, they weren't strong enough to virtually end the use of asbestos in construction until 2018, when Canada received the most stringent bans on asbestos yet. This means that properties that have undergone any type of construction before 2018 may require asbestos testing in Edmonton.
Asbestos is typically hidden away hidden beneath drywall, cement, or other materials that impede fibres from affecting anyone in residential or commercial spaces. At this point, asbestos is generally not dangerous. It isn't until asbestos or asbestos-containing materials such as insulation, pipe wraps, ceiling tiles, shingles, drywall, floor tiles and other construction components are disturbed either by cutting, hammering or other forms of impact.
