Proper Removal of Asbestos
Asbestos was commonly used in tiles, drywall, insulation and other building materials. Improper removal of these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air of your building, posing a possible health risk to you and other inhabitants. According to Health Canada, prolonged exposure to asbestos can even cause lung cancer.
If removal is to be performed when users are still present in the building, it is usually necessary to relocate some users temporarily. Typically, the part of the building from which asbestos is being removed has to be sealed off in order to prevent contamination of the other areas. Removing Asbestos should be done by a certified professional using special equipment. Vancouver Asbestos Removal is a Certified and Professional in Asbestos Abatement Servicing.
