Asbestos Testing & Abatement

ASBESTOS TESTING AND ABATEMENT is performed by our Certified Asbestos Remediation Technicians and all air quality is monitored by our Industrial Hygienist to control fiber release while abatement procedures are being conducted.

Although today asbestos is no longer used, it was used extensively prior to 1990 in many building materials such as building exteriors, flooring, ceilings, walls, pipe insulation, as well as in many other products. It was the preferred choice due to it’s strength, insulating and fire-resistant properties, and mineral composition which could easily be added to the cement.

Now that its health risks have been identified and linked to mesothelioma and asbestosis, only highly trained professionals should attempt to deal with this hazardous material.

If you suspect that asbestos is present in your building or used as a coating on a pipe or other materials, please halt all work and call the professionals at
(587) 597-8378.

Asbestos Testing & Abatement

MOLD ABATEMENT is used to refer to procedures to control mold release or to remove it entirely.

Since mold occurs naturally in our environment, it is normal for some mold to grow in our homes, especially in areas such as washrooms or kitchens where water sources exist. The problem arises when this mold begins to grow uncontrollably and spreads throughout your home, putting your family's health at risk.

If you suspect that mold is present in your home or business, please call the professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (587) 597-8378.

Asbestos Testing & Abatement

PHASE 1 ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS are conducted by our Agrologist, primarily to fulfil the due diligence requirements necessary for the purpose of lending when it comes to commercial properties.

Contamination on the property, as well as any other factors that may limit the buyers interest are disclosed during the assessment.

The assessment consists of a site visit, photographs, documentation of findings, a review of historical government documents, as well as interviewing landowners to gather sufficient information, so that the client and lender can make a sound informed decision regarding the property.

All findings are documented in a formal report and testing procedures are in compliance with CSA Standard Z768-01 (R2012).

Asbestos Testing & Abatement

PHASE 2 ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS are conducted by our Agrologist as a follow-up to the Phase 1 Site Assessment when issues arise that require the need to obtain more information.

The assessment may consist of soil, air, and groundwater testing, as well as the testing of building materials if hazardous conditions are suspected. Any unsightly conditions are extensively documented with appropriate remediation requirements and health and safety plans for proposed work. Finally, a detailed list of laboratory tests and interpretations is provided.

All findings are documented in a formal report and testing procedures are in compliance with CSA Standard 769-00 (R2008).
