Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos abatement is a highly regulated and specialized process. There are many facets to the handling of asbestos that present when dealing with asbestos abatement. This becomes even more complicated when asbestos and asbestos containing materials are exposed or disturbed as a result of mishap or disaster.

At ServiceMaster Restore of Muskoka, our technicians are qualified and fully trained asbestos abatement professionals.

Our services include assessments, surveying, air sampling and reporting on asbestos containing materials, including vermiculite. Our technicians will assess the risk, select the most appropriate method of managing the problem, and perform the abatement operation.

Our technicians will use a variety of techniques to complete your inspection and analysis. These techniques could include:

Air Sampling – this will indicate if you have an asbestos problem and determine its severity.

Materials Sampling – we will determine the source of the airborne asbestos and confirm it with independent laboratory analysis if required.

Assessment of Asbestos – sometimes removal isn’t your best option depending on the condition of the asbestos.
