Experienced Asbestos Contractor Serving Prince George, Terrace, Kitimat, Quesnel and beyond

If your building was built before the 1990s, there is a high probability that your building contains asbestos material. Although asbestos was popular for insulation purposes initially, the Canadian government banned it for its hazardous nature. Continuous inhalation of asbestos fibre can lead to asbestosis. This is a serious respiratory disease that can cause shortness of breath and even cardiac failure in its advanced stages. Working with or disturbing any asbestos-containing material can affect you and your family.

 

At Western Thermal & Demolition, we want to take you out of the danger zone by removing asbestos from your property. Our team will first conducts an asbestos test to determine whether asbestos is present in your home or business. We extend complete asbestos removal services for your property in Prince George and Northern BC in the most efficient way. We also adhere to the strictest safety guidelines while carrying out our work.

 

If you are looking to modify or renovate an older building in any way, you may want to consider hiring a professional asbestos removal service. Asbestos can be disturbed by renovations and demolitions causing inhalation which will have negative short and long-term health effects. It should only be removed by experienced professionals.

How to Identify Asbestos?

It might be difficult to identify asbestos by merely observing the substance. Some common asbestos-containing elements on properties are:

  • Insulation
  • Flooring
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Shingles
  • Plumbing
  • Fireplaces
  • Drywall
  • HVAC components

Hiring a professional asbestos abatement company like ours helps you in identifying asbestos on your property. We recommend residents of all kinds of properties schedule an asbestos inspection appointment with us to protect their and their family's well-being.

 

Asbestos Removal Process

Our asbestos removal procedure involves the following processes:

  • Regulated Work Area: We seal off the work area by disabling HVAC systems and setting up equipment. Our professionals will also cover floors, walls and ceilings that do not have asbestos as they need complete protection from any damage.
  • Material Removal: After a regulated and enclosed work area is established around the surfaces or areas being abated, technicians (wearing abatement suits) will remove the asbestos-containing material. The asbestos material is then placed into asbestos disposal waste bags, sealed and taken out through a waste decontamination unit.
  • HEPA Vacuuming: After all asbestos-containing materials are removed, all abated surfaces and areas are wiped and vacuumed with a special high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum. This ensures removal of all asbestos particles from the air.

 

Asbestos Disposal

As we have mentioned above, asbestos is an extremely toxic material, which can cause severe respiratory and other issues. While removing it from your property is essential, you should practice caution in disposing of it as well. Improper disposal can lead to others coming in contact with asbestos and suffering from health issues as a result. Mishandling the asbestos can also make its fibres airborne, which others might inhale. Inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause irreversible health conditions such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. 

 

It is essential to leave the handling of asbestos to asbestos removal specialists like us. We are aware of the right disposal practices and can ensure that your property's asbestos doesn't harm anyone. Taking a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to removing this carcinogen from your property and disposing of it can severely harm you, your family members, and the general public. If you have any questions about our asbestos disposal practices, please speak to our team
