How to Know if There is Asbestos in Your Home or Commercial Property?
Asbestos was used frequently in building construction until the 1990s especially before the 1980s. This was before the dangers of the mineral were widely understood. It was used in many applications: loose fill to sprayed coatings and came in various colours depending on the type of asbestos. As a result there is no telltale sign that asbestos is present, that’s why it's best to always get a professional asbestos inspection before moving into a new property and especially before beginning structural renovations or demolitions.
There is definitive sign that indicates that asbestos is definitely present. Unfortunately without the professional support of a trained asbestos professional it’s incredibly difficult to identify and confirm its presence without professional asbestos testing in Montreal. If you think asbestos is present in your immediate vicinity, the most safe and effective course of action is to find a local and trusted asbestos removal service in Montreal to inspect, test, and remove any asbestos before it becomes dangerous.
Applications Where Asbestos is Commonly Uncovered
Asbestos was banned in Canada in 2018 and while some uses are still permitted, it’s most likely that you will encounter asbestos at home, if your home was built prior to the 1980s. However it’s always better to be safe than sorry. So, if you need to do work in any of these areas, call Canada’s Restoration for complete and thorough asbestos testing services in Montreal.

When Does Asbestos Become Dangerous?
Untouched or undisturbed, asbestos is not immediately dangerous, but it can become a hazard very quickly. If asbestos is cut, torn, wet or disturbed in any way, its fibres can quickly be released into the air. Once airborne, asbestos fibres continue to divide until they’re microscopic and can be inhaled. Repeat exposure to asbestos fibres can significantly increase the potential for long-term illness.
If you notice asbestos that has been damaged, either by being cut, hit, torn, or wet, vacate the area immediately and call for asbestos testing in Montreal. Once asbestos is confirmed, stay away from the area. If you have to be around asbestos it’s imperative that you are equipped with full protective gear from respiratory protection to an asbestos resistant suit and gloves. If you’re not sure what to do when you encounter asbestos, call a professional for removal right away.
