There are a number of serious health risks associated with exposure to airborne asbestos fibers. Not only can the health effect of asbestos particle exposure be lethal, an individual can go years without showing any real symptoms. One major disease associated with long-term asbestos exposure is Asbestosis. Asbestosis occurs after long-term asbestos exposure that results in the buildup of asbestos particles in the lungs. The asbestos particles that reside in the lungs lead to inflammation and scarring in the tissue, often resulting in permanent lung damage. Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma can also be a result of inhaling airborne asbestos fibers. If you believe your home or business is at risk of asbestos, contact Bob Wallace Excavating for asbestos inspections and removal today.
If your residential or commercial property was constructed before 1990, then you should consider getting professional Asbestos testing and inspection services performed. Disrupted asbestos can make the air in your home or business dangerous and even lethal after long-term exposure. The process of testing for asbestos can stir the fibers and increase the risks associated with asbestos exposure. Because of the dangers associated with the process, it is imperative for any home or business owner to hire an asbestos professional who understands the dangers and how to test the property safely. Bob Wallace Excavating has been handling asbestos and asbestos demolitions for years. Our team of trained technicians understand the methods and procedures to find and identify asbestos. We make sure we properly follow the guidelines of the Worker’s Compensation Board of Alberta and Occupational Health and Safety on every project and asbestos test.
The Asbestos removal process begins with a qualified asbestos professional inspecting your home for the presence of airborne asbestos fibers. If the test/inspection comes back positive, the affected materials must be removed and the affected rooms are then sealed off, ventilated, and properly mitigated. After the asbestos is safely removed from the property, the restoration and/or demolition process can begin. It is vital that a property owner avoids attempting to remove their own asbestos. When asbestos is disrupted, it becomes increasingly more lethal as the microfibers become airborne. The process of asbestos removal can be hazardous if performed by an unlicensed individual that lacks the knowledge and safety equipment needed to perform this task. Asbestos is frequently found in drywall, insulation, spray coatings, roofing materials, furnaces, and other household appliances and building products. If your residential or commercial property requires asbestos removal, contact Bob Wallace Excavating, where we can ensure a safe and efficient removal of asbestos.

If your home or business was built using Asbestos materials, you may require a full asbestos abatement. Asbestos abatement refers to the procedures used to control and mitigate the fiber released from asbestos materials in a building. Asbestos abatement can involve the full removal of asbestos, encapsulation of asbestos, asbestos repair, enclosure, and encasement. Contact the team At Bob Wallace Excavating if you believe your property requires Asbestos abatement. Our team ensures that the asbestos is managed and that the proper abatement methods and procedures are applied.
