Inspection of mould, lead and asbestos

Air monitoring analysis
Asbestos is a naturally-occurring material that was used to make various components like roof shingles and pipe insulation, due to its heat-resistant nature, till the 1990s. You might be wondering why the detection and removal of this fire-resistant material are so important. The answer is whenever asbestos deteriorates, it releases toxic fibres into the air. These fibres can have grave health consequences to those who inhale them after being exposed over both a short or long period. They can face health issues like lung cancer and damage to their lung lining and tissue. Moreover, the effects of asbestos can take decades to manifest and appear in your body. The exposure to asbestos is so harmful that it is the leading cause of death of workers in B.C.
Unfortunately, asbestos was so widely used, that most properties built before the 1990s contain it to some degree. The only way to determine whether your commercial or residential property has asbestos is to get it tested. Our dependable asbestos testing allows you to guard yourself and the residents of your home or commercial property against the damaging effects of asbestos fumes.

Our dedicated technicians are NIOSH certified and work hard at what they do.

It is a statutory requirement that every construction project involving renovation or demolition that is undertaken in British Columbia must have a Hazardous Materials Survey (“Hazmat Survey”) performed before the project is started. The purpose of this inspection is to identify any hazardous materials that may be present so that appropriate safety measures can be applied and a safe working environment maintained. BC Hazmat Inspections offers professional inspections for a variety of materials, including mould, lead and asbestos. Call us before starting your project.
