For owners of older Ajax homes, asbestos is one of the most difficult and dangerous issues to overcome. Because of the scope of the operation, experienced trained removal personnel are required to test, locate, and properly remove hazardous materials.

Is Asbestos Present in Your Home?
Asbestos is a fire- and heat-resistant material made up of millions of tiny strands. It was once thought to be the most effective way for fireproofing residential structures, and it was frequently used in building materials.
Your home’s floors and walls were almost certainly built with asbestos or asbestos-containing materials prior to the 1990s. Asbestos can be found in everyday goods like wall paint and carpeting. In older homes’ garages and basements, asbestos can be discovered in the walls, floors, and door frames. For example, tube wraps and blankets for hot water tanks can be troublesome.
If you suspect your home has asbestos, have it checked by a professional. Asbestos has taken on a variety of physical shapes as a result of its widespread use, making it difficult to identify between them. Samples of possible asbestos hotspots should be collected by a qualified and accredited contractor for a thorough inspection and analysis.
Because the removal technique will disseminate minute asbestos fibers into the air, asbestos-containing portions must be separated from the rest of the structure. Only qualified personnel have access to the equipment and processes required to complete the task in a safe and efficient manner. The air must be securely sealed and vented for a safe and full evacuation.
Deconstructing the region in such a way that no materials are broken down into tiny pieces is vital, as this can allow fibers to spread into the air. To ensure the safe handling of radioactive waste, all products and substances must be enclosed in closed containers or tubing.
A properly qualified asbestos removal staff should be able to employ the most up-to-date methods, safety equipment, and be fully conversant with all local asbestos laws. After the areas have been cleared, wet mops and HEPA-grade vacuums are used to thoroughly clean them, catching any remaining dust and airborne particles.
