What is asbestos?

What is asbestos?

An invisible fibre 400-500 times smaller than a hair, commonly used for its insulating and fireproof qualities, is found in several building materials that were used between 1930-1980. It is only during removal that the inhaled fibres can be extremely harmful and thus be a health risk since it is deposited in the lungs. For asbestos removal, regardless of the sector (residential, commercial or institutional), we suggest that you use our services as it is ruled by laws and regulations.

What is vermiculite?

What is vermiculite?

It is an insulating material commonly known as Zonolite, before 1985, the insulation of any building with vermiculite may contain asbestos fibres. Ambient air may be heavily contaminated by these fibres if insulation materials are improperly handled during maintenance, renovation, demolition or any other activities in or around the building (residential, commercial, industrial and institutional). To minimize health risks, vermiculite must be removed by a qualified contractor.
