As winter is quickly passing by and the new year is soon approaching, there’s no better time to prepare for your big spring renovation project than now. Home renovations can often stir up a mix of emotions, from excitement to anxiety and stress. While it is easy to get tunnel vision by focusing on the fine details of paint colours, washroom features, or new hardwood flooring, many homeowners overlook a hidden hurdle: addressing asbestos.
The renovation process is often tedious, from knocking down drywall, ripping up vinyl tiles, and removing insulation. However, it is critical to take the proper measures to ensure colourless and odourless asbestos does not get released into the air during the process. When asbestos is inhaled, it can damage a person’s lungs and lead to diseases such as lung cancer. As a homeowner, it is important to take precautions to identify if your home is affected by asbestos and know how to proper measures to prevent potential exposures.
If you suspect that your home may be affected by asbestos, make sure to hire a qualified testing company. The testing process includes taking samples of materials and send them to a lab before any reno work is completed. In the event asbestos-containing materials have been identified, the next step is to have the material removed by a qualified asbestos abatement contractor.
