Asbestos Still Present

Is Asbestos Still Present? – Renovco Team

If your home was built before 1990, there is a potential that it could contain asbestos. As long as you are not planning to renovate or demolish the home, it offers no risks. However, if you have plans in place to renovate or demolish your pre-1990 home, a number of steps must be complied with to avoid issues with its inhalation of both yourself and the workers at your job site.

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring fiber that was frequently used in homes between the 1950s and the 1990s. When the fibers are disturbed and it is released into the air, inhalation can cause serious health concerns to anyone in the vicinity.

Asbestos is dangerous to inhale because it can not be dissolved by the body – once it is trapped in the body, it can not be expelled. Asbestos exposure can cause a number of issues in the lungs and surrounding membranes, such as pleuritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and asbestosis. Secondary diseases that can be related to asbestos exposure include lung cancer and peritoneal mesothelioma.

When Asbestos it Dangerous? 

Its fibers contained within solid matrix-like drywall of floor covering are only dangerous when they are disturbed and allowed to pass into the air. For example, an asbestos-containing piece of drywall will not release its fibers when left alone and does not pose a risk to inhabitants. However, should the wall be damaged, sanded, drilled, cut or torn down, this could disturb the asbestos, causing the release of fibers into the air. These can then be inhaled, causing potential damage. There are many more dangerous forms of asbestos-containing materials that pose a greater risk for exposure including boiler and pipe insulation as well as sprayed it for thermal, fire and acoustical protection. These materials can easily release fibers due to building vibration or air movement causing fibers to become airborne.

Precautions before Renovations or Demolitions

Take the following precautions before going ahead with renovations or demolition:

  •  Contact a consultant first like Renovco
  • Have a hazardous materials survey completed
  • If asbestos is found, have a qualified asbestos removal contractor on site to remove the asbestos

If it is found on your property, a number of steps will need to be followed to ensure safety for everyone at the job site. Your consultant can help you to outline specific procedures for your project.

Is it still being used in Canada?

Years ago Canada was a major exporter of asbestos, and there were numerous mines that produced it. With the new regulations, this thing stopped. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot of asbestos hiding in both old and new buildings across the country. This means that any demolition or repair work must be done by a professional team that’s well-trained in the handling of such a dangerous product. Renovco is the company you can trust to clean and decontaminate any building that may contain this carcinogen. We have years of experience cleaning up hazmat materials and can ensure that it’s done in the safest and most environmentally conscious way. Don’t think twice to call us at 613-727-7070.

Asbestos Remediation Inside a Building

Until the 1980s asbestos was a popular material for thermal insulation and suppressing fire. Since then, the construction industry avoided using asbestos materials in buildings because of its history of causing cancer and other illnesses. After that period time, measures have been taken for the asbestos remediation.

Nowadays, homeowners with asbestos have to find a way to deal with asbestos-containing materials while also ensuring the health and safety of building occupants. Renovco as an asbestos remediation company will help you with some ideas and tips related to asbestos.

Best Practice to Manage Asbestos

In general, if the asbestos in your building is intact and sealed with no risk of exposure, then it’s not dangerous. It only becomes a problem when the asbestos fibers have a way to get airborne and reach building occupants. When that happens, people will breathe in the asbestos fibers into their lungs — then it’s a severe health hazard.

However, every commercial property and residential property must go through a Designated Substance Survey. Our professionals will determine if your building has any asbestos. They will also document if the asbestos is intact or sealed way, or if there’s exposure through damage to your drywall, ceilings, tiles, etc.

If we find asbestos, will tell and help you to implement an asbestos management program.

Asbestos Remediation Management Program (ARMP)

The main goal of an ARMP is to keep your building free of asbestos exposure through a series of legally mandated steps. Our team also will provide written notification to all building occupants and contractors of the presence of asbestos. After that, we will train employees who are handling asbestos or working in an area with asbestos on how to properly handle the substance.

Removal of Asbestos

In the case of asbestos exposure, we re-seal the damaged structures (e.g., drywall or broken tiles) or make asbestos remediation entirely. In general, if you have a small or manageable amount of asbestos, we should remove it.

Preventative Steps

You’re likelier to come across asbestos in older buildings. In such situations, your best bet is to maintain your building and keep the asbestos-containing areas in good condition.

But in certain types of buildings, such as industrial ones with heavy machinery and vehicles, maintenance isn’t easy. You could come across frequent damage, in which case, will be better off removing the asbestos entirely. But, you have to call professionals because it’s dangerous to do the interaction by yourself.
