Safe Asbestos Removal 
Asbestos may be present in your home in places such as duct insulation wrap, vermiculite attic insulation, some drywall compounds, floor and ceiling tiles, and often on water lines. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to contain asbestos materials.

Our team is equipped and qualified for all types of asbestos removal in the Ottawa area. Your home or business will benefit from the following services and equipment:

  • Negative air machines and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) scrubbers
  • Asbestos testing at an accredited laboratory
  • Type 1, type 2, and type 3 asbestos abatement operations

Materials containing asbestos become dangerous when they are disturbed. Asbestos materials have a crystalline structure that breaks down over time, so microscopic fibers can become airborne and be inhaled. Prolonged exposure to these asbestos fibers can cause a variety of serious illnesses, including lung cancer.
