Once we have determined the extent, if any, of asbestos-containing materials in your building, you will need to develop a plan on how to address those potential hazards. A decision will be made, depending on the situation, as to which method of management is most appropriate.

If the material is damaged or friable it will have to undergo specific procedures which entail either encapsulating the material to prevent asbestos fibres from being released into the air or removing the material entirely.

If the material is undamaged or non-friable you may find that no action is necessary. Asbestos-containing materials in good condition and in little danger of becoming damaged pose very little threat. We will have documented the asbestos containing materials in your building for you to reference if you plan on having work done in the future.
