ASBESTOS

Prior to 1990 asbestos was regularly used in ceiling texture, drywall mud, vinyl flooring, adhesives and putty’s, attic insulation.  It can be found in over 3,000 different building materials used in homes before 1990. Once these materials are disturbed, the small asbestos fibres can become huge health risks for workers or occupants.  Exposure has been linked to permanent damage to the lungs.

“Asbestos is the number-one killer of workers in BC and the rate of asbestos-related disease is on the rise.  Asbestos is colourless, odourless and deadly when disturbed.”   “24 of 44 work-related construction deaths in 2017 were due to asbestos exposure.”

* Excerpt from- The Vancouver Sun Jan 10 2018 

“Construction workers still face numerous risks”

Public awareness of “The Hidden Killer” (www.hiddenkiller.ca) has increased.  The local municipalities are linking testing for asbestos to issuing of building permits.  Sub-trades are aware they should not be cutting into or removing old gyproc without asbestos testing in advance.

Services

-Sampling, Testing, and Surveys-

-We offer 3 types of sample testing and surveys-

1) Small renovation

This is know as a “Limited Scope Survey” .  We collect drywall samples for analysis prior to small renovation such as a single bathroom reno.  This could be 3, 5, or 7 samples depending on the size of the space.

2) Large renovation

This is know as a “Pre-Renovation Hazardous Material Survey”.  We identify all hazardous materials throughout the home; collect samples and submit for asbestos and lead analysis; and make recommendations of proper methods for removal and disposal prior to renovations.

3) House for demolition 

This is know as a “Pre-Demolition Hazardous Materials Survey”.  Intended for homes/buildings slated for demolition we identify all hazardous materials throughout the home/ building; collect samples and submit for asbestos and lead analysis; and make recommendations of proper methods for removal and disposal prior to demolition.

-Removal-

 We are trained to safely remove hazardous materials in compliance with WorkSafeBC work procedures.  We properly package the material and handle the disposal process with a licenced hazardous materials transporter.   Your work space is left cleaned and encapsulated and ready for the next stage of your renovation, free of any hazardous material.

-Renovations-

Post hazardous material removal, we also offer full renovation services through our parent company St. Arnaud Contracting Ltd.  which has offered full service renovations in the Whistler community for the past 25 years.  For more information please visit
