Asbestos Abatement in Calgary - Removal and Remediation

If you're looking into asbestos abatement in Calgary, it's a good idea to understand the substance and quash some of the myths. By any definition, asbestos is dangerous, and therefore it's banned throughout North America. The problem, of course, is that some homes and buildings still contain asbestos in many forms - from fire-resistant materials to thermal insulation.

For professionals, asbestos abatement entails the effective removal and remediation of asbestos, all done in a safe, careful manner. This could include a number of "hot" spots.

  • old floor materials and ceiling tiles
  • roofing shingles and exterior siding
  • home insulation in attic/basement
  • hot water insulation (boilers/pipes)
  • many cements and joint compounds

For asbestos abatement in Calgary, an expert approach is recommended:

If you've discovered asbestos, or have reason to suspect asbestos, it's best to have a professional inspection. This is particularly relevant when doing a renovation (home or building) and finding building materials that contain asbestos (ACM - asbestos-containing-material).

A professional asbestos inspection will be revealing. In fact, many professionals will recommend that an asbestos deposit be simply left alone. The material is not considered dangerous when left undisturbed. Asbestos only becomes dangerous when asbestos fibers are released.

If you're considering a DIY approach to asbestos removal - think again. Removal of any asbestos containing materials should be left to an asbestos abatement contractor. They know exactly how to safely manage the abatement and to follow strict industry protocol and policies.

What is it that makes asbestos dangerous for occupants and residents?

Simply put, asbestos becomes dangerous when asbestos fibres are released into the air. In older homes, where asbestos has been used around a boiler or a furnace, any disturbance can release dust. And if the dust is circulating throughout the building, it can become dangerous.

If you live in a home that was outfitted with asbestos insulation, these materials may have never been replaced. Here again, a thorough inspection will reveal the extent of asbestos, and will point the way forward - either leaving things intact or professional removal/remediation.

Thanks for the professional work. We were going to deal with the mold removal ourselves and realized it was a bad idea. Your crew really knows what they are doing. Our place is spotless – and they even gave us some good household tips. I have no problem in recommending Matrix.

Thank you for coming to the rescue. I didn’t quite know how dangerous asbestos could be, but I knew it had to be removed completely and properly. Thanks for the professional touch – I feel much better now that the house is clean and safe. I hope I never have to use this service again.
