    Asbestos Removal


    Asbestos is a collection of 6 minerals which occur naturally in the environment. Known for its strength, heat-resistance and affordability, asbestos become widely used in the world in the 1900s for a variety of applications including industrial, commercial and residential products. Asbestos was extensively used in construction materials from the early 20th century until the late 1970s. It was prevalent in a wide range of products, from insulation to roofing materials.

    In the late 1900s, research was shown that exposure to asbestos fibres can cause serious illness and disease including but not limited to asbestos-related lung cancer, mesotheliomas and other deadly effects. In Canada, manufacturers were allowed to sell their remaining stock of friable asbestos-containing materials up until the late 1980s. In 2018, asbestos (with some industry exceptions) was banned from Canada.
