Asbestos Abatement & Removal in Victoria and Vancouver Island
Whether you’re planning a renovation or simply need to demolish an entire building, asbestos abatement in Victoria, Nanaimo and North Vancouver Island is important to consider, especially if you are dealing with an older structure.
First, you need to assess the risk of asbestos in the home or building you wish to renovate or demolish. A qualified inspection should be conducted to collect samples for a report. Next, depending on the results of the report, you may need to hire trained asbestos abatement workers who can perform the renovation or demolition you need safely and efficiently. At H.L. Demolition & Waste Management Ltd, we perform professional asbestos abatement and removal services for residential, commercial and industrial clients. Call us for more information or to book an appointment with us today.
What Is Asbestos & What Are Its Risks?
Many building contain asbestos, which was often used as thermal system insulation, a fire retardant, and a variety of other uses. It was also occasionally “flocked” above false ceilings and in residential ceilings, such as popcorn ceilings and cottage cheese ceilings, until its production was banned in the mid-1980s. Often, asbestos may not pose a risk to most inhabitants or users of a building if the fibres don’t become dislodged or inhaled. However, some methods used in the past to apply asbestos (particularly flocking) allow asbestos fibres to gradually drop off into the air. This can pose a hazard to maintenance people who drill holes into walls for installation of cables and pipes, as asbestos has been proven to be highly carcinogenic.
