Asbestos was utilized in B.C. as a building material up until the early 1990s, and as a result, it can be found in many materials in older buildings. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious long-term health issues or even death, so if you suspect asbestos is present, do not touch or move it! Instead, asbestos removal can be executed safely by experts (like us!) through a remediation process where all asbestos containing materials are extracted, encapsulated and removed with extreme caution and in accordance with WorkSafe BC guidelines and safe work procedures.
