Asbestos is a serious health concern and unfortunately is very difficult to identify. The only way to identify if you have asbestos in your home is through professional asbestos testing. Green Clover Asbestos Services provides asbestos testing and removal services for the entire Vancouver area.
If your home was built before 1990, it almost assuredly contains materials with asbestos somewhere. In previous decades, asbestos was a common material in construction projects. In the years since, experts have discovered asbestos to cause several serious health concerns, including:
Luckily, these health concerns only result from asbestos being disturbed and becoming airborne. You have no need for immediate concern if asbestos is undisturbed in your home.
The City of Vancouver has strict guidelines regarding asbestos removal due to increasing concerns about asbestos abatement. Our technicians comply with all of the guidelines and work closely with the city to ensure that your home is safe and asbestos-free. We understand that removing asbestos is a shared responsibility and work with you to make sure it is fulfilled.
The first step in our asbestos removal process is to determine that your home contains materials with asbestos and the places where those materials are. Our technicians come to your home and gather samples for testing, being sure to disturb the potential items containing asbestos as little as possible.
Once we have gathered the materials, we test them. These tests identify which materials, if any, have asbestos, and, using that information, we compile a report for you that details where asbestos is in your home.
As soon as we know where the asbestos is, we begin the process of removal. We work closely with you to ensure we provide minimal disturbance to you and your family as we remove the asbestos. We also consult with the necessary city officials to fully comply with all city guidelines.
