Identifying Asbestos

Calgary’s ASTRA Restoration stresses the importance of asbestos awareness, which can alert you to the dangers asbestos poses in your home or workplace. However, while knowing about possible asbestos-containing materials might alert you to potential contamination, only testing at an approved laboratory will determine the presence of asbestos.

ASTRA Restorations will test your Calgary property for asbestos. If you suspect asbestos material in your home, contact ASTRA Restorations.

Do not collect a sample without consultation. Remember, any damage or breakage to asbestos-containing material will release asbestos fibres into the air and risk your health. Asbestos handling requires specialized protection, training, and experience.


There are various asbestos tests, the selection of which depends on the type of material being analyzed. For example, the following materials each require their own respective test:

  • airborne agents,
  • bulk building materials,
  • settled dust and other nonbuilding materials,
  • soil and sediment, and
  • water and aqueous samples.

Calgary’s ASTRA Restorations helps with this process. If you suspect asbestos, call us. We will test and, if asbestos is present, abate asbestos in your Calgary home or workplace. Our experienced technicians are certified to safely, effectively, and efficiently remove asbestos from your home or workplace.

ASTRA Restorations has the knowledge, tools, and protocols to render your Calgary home or workplace free from asbestos contamination and safe for you, your family, or your employees. At ASTRA Restorations, we work so you can breathe easy.
