FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ASBESTOS REMEDIATION IN EDMONTON
Asbestos is dangerous when airborne fibers are inhaled. It is a category 1 carcinogen, meaning it can cause cancer, especially lung cancer and mesothelioma. Construction projects are especially dangerous because removing asbestos can disturb the fibers. You should always hire a professional to safely remove asbestos.
Asbestos may be found in duct tape (often white in color) on your ducting, floor tiles, sheet vinyl flooring, attic insulation, old pipes, plaster, drywall putty, shingles, and many other products. If you suspect that you may be dealing with asbestos, do not disturb it. Call a professional!
Canada was once a world leader in asbestos production. While its use in homes was banned in 1979, asbestos products can be found in buildings constructed as late as the early 1990s.
While it is possible to test for asbestos yourself, doing so can be risky. In order to get a sample to test, you may have to disturb the asbestos fibers, potentially causing exposure. Even then, the kit may no be as reliable as having professionals do the job. Kalloway can professionally test for asbestos and deal with it safely.
Asbestos is dangerous when it is friable, meaning is can be easily crumbled, which can release fibers into the surrounding air. Once in this state, asbestos can be breathed into the lungs or swallowed to reach the digestive tract. Because the asbestos is difficult to break down, it remains in the body and causes disease.
Not all old tile or sheet flooring contained asbestos. But a significant quantity did. You may suspect that you are dealing with asbestos tile if your structure was built prior to 1980. If you plan on removing any asbestos product, the most reliable way to check would be to test.
