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. Working with or disturbing any asbestos-containing material can affect the health and safety of you and your family.

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 identify and remove 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 fibres are microscopic and can easily be inhaled or ingested. Once these fibres enter your lungs or digestive system, they can cause serious health problems. Continuous inhalation of asbestos fibre can lead to serious respiratory diseases such as asbestosis, which causes shortness of breath and even cardiac failure in its advanced stages. This toxic substance has been linked to severe health problems such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.

One of the most dangerous things about asbestos is that it can take years or even decades for the symptoms of exposure to manifest. When you realize you have a problem, it may be too late to do anything about it. Taking action now is essential to protect yourself and your family. Contact Western Thermal & Demolition for asbestos removal services in Prince George.




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 unique high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum. This ensures the removal of all asbestos particles from the air.


There are some significant reasons why asbestos abatement is essential, including:

  • Protects human health: Asbestos exposure can cause serious health problems. Its fibres can be inhaled or swallowed, leading to lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Abatement helps prevent the release of asbestos fibres into the air and protects the health of individuals who may come into contact with them.

  • Avoid complications of renovations/demolitions: If you want to modify or renovate an older building in any way, you may need to hire a professional asbestos removal service. Renovations and demolitions can disturb asbestos, leading to inhalation of its harmful fibres that can cause adverse health effects in the short and long term. It should only be removed by experienced professionals with proper training and equipment.

  • Compliance with regulations: Canadian regulations require the safe removal and disposal of asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos abatement by our professionals ensures compliance with these regulations and helps prevent fines and legal penalties.

As mentioned above, asbestos is a highly toxic material that can cause severe respiratory and other issues. While removing it from your property is essential, it must also be disposed of safely and adequately. Improper disposal can lead to others coming into contact with asbestos and suffering health issues. 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 removal to specialists like us. We know the proper disposal practices and will ensure your property's asbestos doesn't harm anyone. Taking a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to remove this carcinogen from your property and dispose of it can severely harm you, your family, and the general public. Please speak to our team if you have any questions about our asbestos disposal practices in Prince George, Terrace, Kitimat, Quesnel, and Northern BC.
