Asbestos Testing in Victoria and Vancouver, BC

Asbestos is known to be toxic to humans and animals and was once commonly used in building materials such as flooring, tile grout, insulation, drywall joints and other surfaces. It is known to cause serious health problems, so you must hire the right asbestos testing company before you start to demo.

Asbestos doesn’t pose much of a risk unless it’s disturbed, which causes fibres to become airborne and potentially inhaled. 

Our team of experienced asbestos testing professionals at Drywall Medic guides you through the process of testing your drywall, complying with local guidelines and mitigating the risks associated with handling asbestos in your home.

Drywall Asbestos Testing Services

Before construction companies knew about the long-term issues that asbestos can cause, it was not uncommon for contractors to use this cheap, easily produced material for everything from fireproofing building walls to bulking up insulation.

Even though the world finally realized what was happening decades later, many older homes still contain asbestos that has not yet been removed.

So if your home was constructed before the 1980s, there is a fair chance you have asbestos somewhere on the property, whether in your attic, drywall, basement, or crawl space areas.

In fact, even if your home was built after this date cutoff, it’s still best to take caution because some post-1980 building materials still contain small amounts of asbestos.

If your home has an asbestos problem, or even if you suspect it might, it’s essential to contact an asbestos abatement company in Victoria, BC. Protecting your health is not worth waiting for, so don’t delay!

We will take samples of materials in your home that may contain asbestos, assess their chemical composition, and then make a plan for what to do next.

The Importance of Asbestos Inspections

Before our asbestos abatement company in Victoria, BC, can remove asbestos, we perform asbestos inspection services to locate this material and assess what needs to be done.

These inspections are absolutely essential since multiple home areas can contain hidden asbestos. During our inspection, we’ll keep you updated on what we find and provide an asbestos health summary for your property.

Does Your Property Need a Home Asbestos Inspection?

Determining if you might need asbestos inspection services isn’t always straightforward. However, there are a few clear signs that indicate you should seek help from a professional asbestos inspection company. Here are some signs you should look for:

  • Your house was built before the 1980s.
  • You have vinyl flooring that was installed in the 1950s – 1980s.
  • Your walls are made from cement sheeting.
  • You have corrugated roofing.
  • Your home has vermiculite insulation.
  • Your home’s sale paperwork or maintenance records mention the use of asbestos or asbestos products (asbestos may also be labeled as chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, or actinolite).
  • You or another household member has ever had mesothelioma (or symptoms of mesothelioma).
