After it was established that asbestos could be hazardous to health, especially when it becomes airborne, asbestos was banned from being used in the construction of buildings.
However, since these health-regulated changes, many previously constructed buildings contain asbestos even today. If exposed, the presence of asbestos can cause severe health effects, such as life-threatening diseases and illnesses. If you suspect your home or business property has asbestos, BC Hazmat Inspections offers dependable asbestos testing in Langley and across the Lower Mainland. We also offer mould testing services and air quality testing. For more information on asbestos testing in Langley please get in touch with our professional team.
Property owners and business owners are legally obligated under WorkSafe BC regulations to protect workers from asbestos exposure. This is because asbestos-containing materials can be exposed in a way which causes a risk of asbestos inhalation.
Before planning property renovation or home demolition, you should get asbestos testing done by a qualified team if your property was built prior to the 1980s. This can help protect you, your family, and any workers from potentially being exposed to asbestos. If asbestos is found, you may need to eliminate the source through abatement to reduce the risk of health injury or disease.
BC Hazmat Inspections has the expertise in asbestos testing to help you make the right decisions for protecting the well-being of you and those who visit or reside on your property. Whether you need to test your home or office space, we have the right level of expertise for the job. We will also make the process as easy and convenient for you as possible.
