Asbestos has been used in many building materials and sometimes it is difficult to confirm whether asbestos was used in the building materials without sampling the material and having it tested. Before you start a renovation or are just concerned that there may be asbestos in your home or office, call Air Doctors to take samples of the materials you are concerned about and have them tested at a certified laboratory in the Toronto area.
After an asbestos removal project, Air Doctors can complete air sampling to ensure that the area was properly cleaned.
If you believe that you have asbestos containing materials in your home or office, do not touch or disturb the materials as that may release asbestos fibers into the air.
To ensure the test is reliable, we will take several samples of the suspect materials and send them to an asbestos testing laboratory in the greater Toronto area for swift, reliable identification and analysis. A full written report will be provided to you with specific details of the material contents and recommendations we have for remediation of your problem. Sampling is completed as per the Ministry of Labour regulation 287/05 which governs asbestos handling in Ontario. Testing results from the laboratory are provided in a written report and provide the information of whether there was asbestos in the sample or not. If there is asbestos in the material the laboratory indicates the amount of asbestos found in the sample.
If the materials contain asbestos, we recommend that you engage a company with certified asbestos abatement personnel, like Air Doctors to remove these materials safely.
