ASBESTOS REMOVAL METHODS
Asbestos can cause a number of serious health issues if an individual has been exposed to the harmful material for a lengthy duration. Various cancers, asbestosis, and other lung and throat related issues could be the result of prolonged asbestos exposure. Asbestos testing is key to determining if your home or business contains asbestos in the insulation or other building materials. If asbestos is found the affected material must be removed using one of the asbestos removal processes and methods. At Western Environmental Solutions, we possess the knowledge, skills, and equipment to safely remove your asbestos. If you believe your home or business contains asbestos do not hesitate to contact Western Environmental Solutions with your Edmonton, Calgary, or Victoria asbestos concerns. We can evaluate the severity of the asbestos and make recommendations as to which asbestos removal method best matches your needs.
Asbestos that has not ben disturbed can sometimes be encapsulated and sealed rather than fully removed. Asbestos encapsulation utilizes a sealant chemical to cover the insulation in order to stop the potential spread of the harmful air particles. This can be a more cost-effective way to keep your property safe. An experienced contractor should always accomplish asbestos encapsulation. Professionals can provide initial inspections that ensure encapsulation can accomplish your property safety goals and to ensure that the asbestos is not disturbed during the encapsulation processes.
Asbestos containment provides a similar service to encapsulation but utilises physical barriers, rather than a chemical coating. If the asbestos affected area in your home or business has not been disturbed and the particles have not yet been released, a barrier can be built to trap and prevent the eventual spread of asbestos. Plywood, gypsum board and metal sheeting can each be used to create an effective asbestos containment barrier.

Asbestos abatement can be required if asbestos materials and insulation have been disturbed in any way and before a room or full property renovation begins. The deconstruction or other renovation preparation effort could release unknown asbestos into your home or business. Contact Western Environmental Solutions for emergency asbestos removal and abatement services. We can find any and all instances of asbestos within the property and work to fully remove the harmful materials.
Asbestos remediation involves full removal of all the asbestos in your home or business. The remediation process begins with a full property inspection. When the asbestos is founded tested, the affected areas will be deconstructed and then materials are then completely remediated. Finally, the property will be fully ventilated to remove any airborne particles. The remediation of asbestos in your home or business can return the property to a fully functional and safe environment for you, your loved one, and or your employees.
