For a long time, builders and homeowners didn’t realize the dangers that asbestos represented to our health, much less that thousands of cancer cases would be traced back to the material. Now, we often face a similar problem – people know asbestos is dangerous, but they don’t really understand just how common it is.
That’s because, even though it was banned before then, builders could use exemptions to keep using asbestos in construction until the late 1980s. And, it was used in all kinds of materials and products. These days, it isn’t unusual for us to find asbestos in places homeowners wouldn’t expect, such as ceiling textures, attic insulation, and even vinyl or linoleum flooring.
For that reason, the only way to keep yourself and your family safe in a home that’s more than 25 years old is to have a professional come in and look for asbestos. Here at Amity Environmental, we don’t just provide that service, we work with the highest-credited lab in North America to ensure that we can find out exactly what you have in your home, without any mistakes or accuracy errors.
Do you need to have an experienced Calgary asbestos testing and removal team on your side, or one of the world’s best labs evaluating samples? That’s for you to decide, but given that you won’t pay anything extra to work with our company, why would you demand anything less? It’s unfortunate that asbestos has disrupted, and even ended, so many lives simply because we didn’t know better. Now, though, you have the power to make one phone call and have our team look through your home for any problems that could cause you and your family health issues later.
Don’t wait any longer – place a call to Amity Environmental today at 587-892-7920.
