Asbestos Abatement

WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF IMPROPER ASBESTOS REMOVAL?

Calgary’s ASTRA Restorations has teams of highly-trained, certified, and experienced technicians to safely remove asbestos from your home or workplace. Remember, asbestos is a highly dangerous contaminant, and you should never handle it yourself.

If you suspect asbestos in your Calgary home, contact ASTRA Restorations. Even small damages to an asbestos material should be treated with caution.

Asbestos handling requires specialized training and protection equipment, including for the mouth, eyes, skin, and nose. It also requires proper site management, including air-replacement systems and complicated procedures and equipment to prevent contamination.

Acute exposure to disturbed asbestos can be more dangerous than long-term passive exposure. Further, improper quarantine and decontamination can make the situation worse, leaving sites permanently contaminated.

ABATEMENT METHODS

Consult ASTRA Restorations to confirm with laboratory tests whether your Calgary home or workplace has asbestos. We will advise you on how to mitigate risks posed by asbestos. ASTRA Restorations’ technicians will recommend one of three methods for dealing with asbestos:

  • LEAVE THE ASBESTOS ALONE
    Some asbestos materials (unless damaged or deteriorating) do not pose a health risk. These materials can include decorative ceilings, walls, or flooring. In such cases, the most prudent response is to leave the materials and limit any future damage as much as possible.
  • ASBESTOS CONTAINMENT
    Containing asbestos may include coating asbestos with a penetrating material that prevents fibre release or enclosing the material with a new construction, such as a false wall.
  • ASBESTOS REMOVAL
    When an asbestos-containing material must be removed, that removal must be carried out by certified individuals.

Calgary’s ASTRA Restorations tests for and abates asbestos in homes and workplace properties. We have the certified training and expertise to abate your home or workplace efficiently and effectively, making your property safe once again. We work so you can breathe easy.
