Free Asbestos Inspection
Using advanced air sampling (required because asbestos is often hard to identify) and material sampling techniques, an experienced Air Detectives asbestos professional will determine:
- If you have asbestos-containing materials
- The extent of your asbestos contamination
- Safest and most effective way to solve your asbestos problem
Air sampling or bulk sampling is your first step in the removal process. It will determine if you indeed have asbestos-containing materials in your home. You cannot just simply look at a material and tell whether or not it contains asbestos, unless it is clearly marked on the product.
Air sampling involves capturing all air borne fibers of a certain size on a filter and laboratory analysis of the fibre sample to determine the quantity and or types of fibres collected.
Trained Air Detectives air sampling professional will take several samples inside your home, send them to the laboratory for testing and will prepare detailed asbestos report with laboratory findings.
When Is Asbestos Removal Required?
If asbestos is friable, asbestos can become airborne. Once it has been released into the air it can be inhaled into the lungs which can lead to various cancers and other asbestos-related diseases. The legal definitions of "friable" and "non-friable" asbestos clearly depicts the differences between dangerous and safe asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).
Friable ACM is any material that contains more than one percent asbestos by weight or area, depending on whether it is a bulk or sheet material and can be crumbled, pulverized,or reduced to powder by the pressure of an ordinary human hand.
Non-friable ACM is any material that contains more than one percent asbestos, but cannot be pulverized under hand pressure.
Once we confirm and analyze your asbestos contamination, Air Detectives will remove asbestos from your property by:
- Sealing off contaminated area to prevent airborne asbestos particles from spreading to other areas
- Removing asbestos-containing materials using sealed containers to make sure that asbestos is not spread during removal process
- Cleaning up and vacuuming removal area using professional asbestos clean up equipment to ensure that no asbestos fibres were left behind
- Performing post-removal air sampling throughout your property to confirm complete asbestos removal
