WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF IMPROPER ASBESTOS REMOVAL?
Astra Restorations, based out of Calgary, Alberta, has teams of highly-trained, certified, and experienced technicians to safely remove asbestos from your home, commercial, or industrial property. Remember, asbestos is a highly dangerous contaminant and you should never contact it yourself. If you suspect asbestos in your home, contact Astra Restorations immediately.
Asbestos should never be removed or handled by uncertified individuals. Even small damages to an asbestos material should be treated with caution, requiring specialized training and protections for mouth, eyes, skin, and nose. Acute exposure to disturbed asbestos can be more dangerous than long-term passive exposure. Further, improper quarantine and decontamination of removal sites can leave locations in a state of contamination over the long-term.
HOW DOES ASTRA ABATE ASBESTOS IN THE HOME?
If laboratory tests confirm the presence of asbestos in your home, you must consult a certified technician to advise on the best possible solution to the specific health-risks posed by your asbestos-containing material.
At Astra Restorations, our technicians will recommend one of three methods of dealing with asbestos in the home. These three methods are:
LEAVING THE ASBESTOS ALONE
Some asbestos materials do not often pose a risk to health unless damaged or deteriorating. These materials can include decorative ceilings, walls, or flooring. In such cases, the most prudent response is to leave the materials be and limit any future damage as much as possible.
In some cases, the best response to asbestos in the home is containment. This may include sealing the asbestos with paint, coating it with a material that penetrates and prevents the release of fibres, or enclosing the material with a new construction, such as a false wall.
Where an asbestos-containing material must be removed from the home, that removal must be carried out by certified individuals.
Calgary-based Astra Restorations is here to test for and abate your home or workplace property of asbestos and asbestos-containing materials. We have the certified training and expertise to do this work efficiently and effectively, making your property safe again. We literally work to let you breath easy.
