Asbestos Removal

Asbestos Removal (industry calls it asbestos abatement or facility remediation)

Asbestos revealed as Canada’s top cause of workplace death*

Asbestos exposure is the single largest on-the-job killer in Canada, accounting for more than a third of total workplace death claims approved last year and nearly a third since 1996, new national data obtained by The Globe and Mail show. The 368 death claims last year alone represent a higher number than fatalities from highway accidents, fires and chemical exposures combined.

Asbestos was a common product used in many construction materials until 1985.  However,  buildings may have still used asbestos-containing materials such as vermiculite up until 1999. In 2018, a client discovered vermiculite being used in their building, that tested positive for asbestos.  The older the home, the greater the chance of having asbestos-containing materials be present.
