Certified in Asbestos Abatement

Removal of asbestos must be done properly and by an experienced and certified asbestos company.

For commercial property owners, the environmental and financial risks associated with asbestos abatement has never needed more expertise, more commitment or more sensitivity. Asbestos abatement is at the core of what we do.

Certified Asbestos Abatement

Removal of asbestos is a very intricate and extensive job. It must be done properly and by an experienced and certified asbestos company. When working with asbestos materials, extreme precautions must be taken to protect our workers from breathing in the asbestos fibers. But more importantly, to prevent cross-contamination.

Disturbing asbestos-containing materials (ACM) during a renovation or renovation repair may release asbestos fibres into the air.

Recognize & Reduce the Risk of Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos fibers pose a serious health risk to workers and building occupants and have been linked to lung disease and some types of lung cancer.

Before renovating, repairing or remodeling a home built before 1990, check for these potential asbestos-containing materials:

  • Vermiculite Insulation – Typically found in Attics and Walls
  • Gypsum Board Filling Compound
  • Plaster walls
  • Textured Walls or Ceilings
  • Vinyl Flooring (tile & sheet)
  • Furnace Ducting Tape
  • Boiler and Pipe Insulation
  • Asbestos Cement Board

If you find or suspect asbestos-containing material in your building, do not disturb the asbestos-containing material in any way (e.g. removing, cutting, sanding or breaking) before contacting ProActive Hazmat.

Abatement Planning

At ProActive Hazmat, we will set up an asbestos abatement plan to deal with your specific circumstances and give you the peace of mind that your building is safe for occupancy.

We will carry out a site inspection and recommend a third-party lab to analyze any suspect material that could potentially be disturbed.

If asbestos is found, we will work with you and a third party environmental consultant to ensure that asbestos and the risk of asbestos exposure is safely removed from your home.
