Asbestos is a group of natural minerals made up of fibrous crystals. While it was once widely used for insulation in homes and commercial buildings because of its durability and resistance to heat, today it’s a known as a hazardous material that poses a serious health risk to those who are exposed.

If you are planning to perform any renovations, demolitions, or additions to your home, we recommend that you hire a professional to test for asbestos. If asbestos is discovered, you should then immediately hire a qualified asbestos removal expert to eliminate it. Under any circumstances, do not attempt asbestos removal on your own. Doing so will only increase the risk to both your health and the health of your family. The disposal and removal of asbestos is regulated by the Ontario government, and should only be performed by a certified, knowledgeable expert. The technicians at SPOT Maintenance are trained in the necessary procedures to control fiber release from materials containing asbestos, whether by encapsulation, encasement, or removal.
