Safe Asbestos Testing in Abbotsford

Asbestos is a highly toxic, fibrous silicate mineral that was used for its fire-resistant properties as the primary insulation material in the construction of buildings up until the 1980s and 90s. After research found that asbestos fibres were dangerous to anyone exposed to it, it has been banned for use in construction. If your home or office building existed in the 1980s, it is important to get your property tested and analysed for asbestos in your insulation, ceiling tiles, or flooring to ensure the asbestos is contained and not a health concern. Call BC Hazmat for safe and dependable asbestos testing and analysis, air quality testing, and mould testing in Abbotsford. Ensure you are protecting yourself, your family, colleagues, and friends from the dangers of disturbed asbestos.
