What is Asbestos?

Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral, was once widely utilized in building materials for its durability and fire-resistant characteristics. Subsequently, it was revealed that inhalation of asbestos fibers could lead to severe health complications, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. This discovery led to the prohibition of asbestos in construction materials across numerous countries.

The Importance of Asbestos Testing

Historically mined in Libby, Montana, asbestos was a common additive in various construction materials until around 1990. Later identified as a carcinogen, its use in building materials is now banned in Canada.

The danger of asbestos emerges when it becomes airborne, especially during renovations of older properties. Materials that may contain asbestos include:

  • Window sealants
  • Certain paints
  • Exterior wall coatings
  • Stucco finishes
  • Roofing materials
  • Drywall joint fillers or textured ceilings
  • Plaster laths
  • Insulation solutions for floors or attics

Disrupting Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM), such as breaking apart drywall joint fillers or attic renovation, can release asbestos fibers into the air. These fibers, once inhaled, lodge in the lungs and are impossible to remove. Incorrect handling and disposal of ACM can contaminate an entire property, posing health hazards to all occupants.

Our Asbestos Testing Services

At Double Clean Restoration, we prioritize accuracy through independent testing, ensuring our clients receive reliable results. We engage certified asbestos testing laboratories to determine the asbestos fiber concentration in the air prior to any intervention. In line with regulations set forth by the Alberta Government, it’s essential to demonstrate air quality improvement following asbestos remediation efforts. After conducting the initial asbestos assessment, we implement a containment protocol for the affected area, utilizing air scrubbers and establishing negative pressure containment. During the asbestos abatement process, we also perform occupational air sampling tests to confirm the effective use of personal protective equipment (PPE) by our asbestos removal team.

Safe and Efficient Abatement Asbestos

Should asbestos be detected in your property, enlisting trained professionals for its removal is crucial. Our team possesses the requisite expertise, skills, and tools to safely eradicate asbestos-containing materials from your premises. We adhere rigorously to all applicable safety standards and protocols to significantly reduce the risk of exposure.

Our Asbestos Insulation Removal Services

Asbestos insulation, once favored for its fire-resistant qualities in homes and buildings, can break down over time, dispersing asbestos fibers into the environment. If your property contains asbestos insulation, our expert team can securely eliminate it, safeguarding the well-being of you and your loved ones.

Cost of Asbestos Insulation Removal Services

The cost of asbestos testing begins at $300, fluctuating with the quantity of samples collected and the particular asbestos testing method needed. For conventional building substances, we collect a one-liter sample. A package of three standard asbestos tests is priced between $300 and $350, while we also provide an unlimited testing option for $800. When it comes to examining vermiculite (an older form of attic insulation that looks similar to rabbit feed), a specialized test known as Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) analysis is utilized. It’s recommended to assume vermiculite is asbestos-laden and handle it with the necessary precautions.
