For half a century until the 1980s, asbestos was widely used in the construction of homes and buildings. Health concerns led to a decreased use in asbestos in North America in the early 1980s because it was proven that air borne asbestos fibers cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. Until recently, Canada was an exporter of asbestos, primarily to developing countries.
Despite the fact that asbestos is no longer used, there are still many homes and buildings in Canada that pose health risks to their occupants. The only way to determine if asbestos fibers are air borne is to have the air quality tested. If the test proves positive, then the asbestos must be removed.
Though our name is got mold?™, and we specialize in mold removal and remediation, like many environmental air quality specialists, we also offer asbestos removal services. To ensure that our clients have peace of mind, we use a Third Party independent clearance sampling firm to make sure the job is done properly.
