The Removal Process

Many homeowners are unaware they have asbestos in their house until they become involved in a home renovation project where testing is required for building permits.   This can be stressful, especially when dealing with an older home where asbestos may be hiding.

Asbestos Free Whistler has a trained team with the specialized equipment, knowledge and protective gear to safely remove the asbestos containing materials, including:

  • Creating a risk assessment and work procedures specific to your home and building
  • Filing a Notice of Project with WorkSafeBC prior to work starting
  • Setting up containment areas to prevent cross contamination
  • Safe removal of the materials
  • Properly packaging the materials for disposal
  • Disposal with a licensed hazardous materials transporter
  • Cleaning and encapsulating the exposed surfaces to contain any remaining loose fibres
