Services – Asbestos
Materials that contain asbestos may release fibers when disturbed, removed improperly, damaged, cut, torn, repaired, saw cut, scraped, or drilled. We will assess the condition of your building or home, take samples of materials that we suspect to contain asbestos for testing, and finally advise you about the corrective measures that are needed. If you are looking to remove or repair asbestos containing materials, we can ensure that the contractor who undertakes the corrective action has followed the proper procedure, including the cleanup. We can also undertake air monitoring to ensure that there is no increase in asbestos fibers after the work is performed. We will also provide you with a detailed report and lab analysis upon completion.
Full Asbestos Surveys
A full asbestos survey includes the identification of all accessible asbestos containing materials in a building prior to demolition or renovation activities. Costs for this service will vary according to the size of the building and types of materials encountered.
In some cases, such as insurance claims we can perform limited bulk sampling (as per WorkSafeBC regulations) for smaller areas impacted by floods, fires and other accidental damage.
We provide all necessary air monitoring required on projects including Occupational, Post Abatement & Area Air Clearance Testing. We can also provide you with investigative indoor air quality testing for VOC’s and other airborne contaminants.
