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 hazardous material and a serious health risk to those exposed.

If you are planning to perform any renovations, demolitions, or additions to your home, it is recommended that you hire a professional to test for asbestos. If found, you should hire a qualified asbestos removal expert in Ottawa to eliminate it before beginning work. It is important that you not attempt asbestos removal on your own; this will increase the risk to your health and the health of your family. The disposal and removal of asbestos is regulated by the Ontario government, and should 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.

Protect the Health of Your Family

Failing to promptly remove asbestos from your home will undoubtedly put your family at risk. Exposure or inhalation can lead to serious health conditions, some of which may not develop until years after the exposure; in some cases, exposure may even lead to death. Some of the most common health conditions associated with asbestos exposure are:

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Plural Thickening
